ICEDA invites you to its Scientific Cafés!

Endocrine disruptors, omnipresent in our daily lives, are molecules that interact with our hormones. They are found everywhere: in cosmetic, pharmaceutical and household products, in plastics, in pesticides. But what are the effects of these products on animal and human health? How do they act? How are we exposed? Are we all exposed in the same way?

Gathered in a family-friendly space, researchers will answer these questions and those of the public. Led by Isabelle Plante, professor at INRS and co-director of CIAPE, these Scientific Cafés will allow us to learn more about our daily exposure to endocrine disruptors and social justice.

The events are free and will be broadcast live on the ICEDA Facebook page.
