The European Academy of Andrology has recently published a special issue on endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in the International Journal of Andrology. This special issue exclusively focuses on the impact of man-made environmental factors on human reproductive health of men and women. The majority of the papers derived from the presentations at the 6th Copenhagen Workshop on EDs in April 2011. At that 4 day workshop, more than 200 international leading scientists from endocrinology, basic science, toxicology, reproductive biology, immunology, chemistry, environmental health, and epidemiology, came together to discuss the most recent scientific research on endocrine disruption. Some of the papers published in this issue provide an impression of the scientific discussions that took place at this meeting and edited comments from the audience are included.
