Chung-Ang University Study Reports Hepatic Toxicity from Endocrine Disrupting Chemical Mixtures

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can damage the liver by altering liver enzymes, eliciting the release of inflammatory cytokines, and promoting excessive fat buildup in the liver resulting in a condition called steatohepatitis, which may progress into liver fibrosis, cell death, and ultimately liver failure, scientists report based on their study using a mouse model.
