Treść
This paper aims at the presentation of certain consequences of environmental pollution on the animals health. Many antropogenic factors, that are introduced into the environment due to the human activity, may adversely affect the balance of physiological hormonal functions in animals. Depending on the activity of these factors, they may be characterized as: estrogenic, anti-estrogenic or anti-androgenic. Antropogenic pollutants identified as the endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) include: synthetic hormones, pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, dioxins, alkylophenols, phthalates, and bisphenol A. The EDCs may cause a variety of endocrine and reproductive disorders including: gonadal changes, altered reproductive behavior, malformation of the foetus, abnormal sperm, low sperm counts, thyroid dysfunction and many others, which will ultimately lead to the alteration at animal population level. In addition, EDCs are suspected of contributing to increased evidence of cervical, breast and prostate cancer cases. This group of chemicals has been found to have hormonal effects that disrupt the endocrine system of animals and humans at extremely low level of exposure.
