Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Knowledge is progressively building up related to the potential harm of chemical products to human health, and some agents have been shown to be able to alter endocrine functions, affecting the timing of puberty, fertility, adipose and glucose metabolism, thyroid function, and the control of appetite. Behavior and neurodevelopment are also affected. In order to proceed on the understanding and to be able to plan actions, the contribution of a multidisciplinary approach is of utmost importance.
This Special Issue will focus on basic knowledge, on animal and human studies, and on studies focusing on how to further investigate the effects (ex. epigenetics, omics in general) in order to obtain a full picture. Innovations and plans are welcome. Original papers, reviews, commentaries, and papers focusing on methods and methodology are all also welcome.
