The miracle materials that began to enter our lives in the 1960s and now are unavoidable have a dark side. Some of them are toxic in ways that the chemists that invented them in the 1950s never imagined.

Today they contribute to a wide range of hormone-related diseases, including breast cancer, prostate cancer, diabetes, infertility and neurological disorders, which have become global epidemics. But we know enough now about the mechanisms by which they cause these adverse effects to replace them with inherently safer materials, and help chemists make money in the process.
