Abstract

EDCs are widely used in the consumer products and researchers claim their human and environmental health impacts through their wide research. Some of the Indian researchers tried to show the direct relationships between these EDCs and animal, environmental impact in their experiments but were not able to produce much information on human health. But the research data from various international sources proved that these EDCs have acute health impacts on human health too. Further research in Indian context can support this. It is also observed that in some cases there are no standards or regulation in place; hence there has no control or restriction of its use in consumer products so it leads to the downstream contamination. The document has tried to bring out the current scenario in Indian context regarding some of the EDCs.
