Link to Schoolzone Site Congratulations on all the work your organization does researching and raising awareness about environmental exposures and toxins and the impact they can have on men, women, and families. We at the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals (ARHP) are very excited to be part of the discussion about how we can reduce these impacts and improve health for individuals and families.

Link to Schoolzone Site Schoolzone, UK's most active teacher community with over 80,000 registered users, 2,300 fully-profiled teacher consultants and thousands of online users has awarded e.hormone.tulane.edu a 5 star rating on their web guide. Here's what they are saying: "This has become a highly comprehensive site on the topic of environmental hormones. The site has links and teaching resources. This site has details which would improve and enhance the amount of knowledge on the impact of hormones on the body and on the environment. Well worth a read."

National Resources Defense Coucil
The National Resources Defense Council picked e.hormone as a featured site, saying "You might know PCBs and phthalates are bad for your health, but do you know why? e.hormone, a website run by the Center for Bioenvironmental Research at Tulane and Xavier Universities, will answer all your questions about environmental chemicals. As the site's tagline proclaims, it is "your gateway to the environment and hormones," providing an up-to-date collection of news, events, research and resources relating to endocrine disrupting chemicals, hormones and the environment." 

The Reporter's Environmental Handbook (Rutgers University Press). The issue briefs section includes information about endocrine disrupters; the first resource listed is the CBR's Environmental Concepts Made Easy site (now e.hormone).
