What is TEDX? TEDX (The Endocrine Disruption Exchange, Inc.) is the only organization that focuses primarily on the human health and environmental problems caused by low-dose and/or ambient exposure to chemicals that interfere with development and function, called endocrine disruptors. Since antiquity, humans have known that some chemical substances in the environment can cause adverse health effects. For example, the Romans knew that sentencing prisoners to work in lead mines was a death sentence due to the toxicity of elemental lead.
