BUZZ WORDS IN THE ARTICLE

ECOTOXICITY: STRESSOR TO AFFECT ECOSYSTEMS

IMMUNOTOXICITY:ADVERSE EFFECTS ON THE FUNCTIONING OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM FROM EXPOSURE TO CHEMICAL SUBSTANCES

ENDOCRINE DISRUPTOR: CANCEROUS TUMORS, BIRTH DEFECTS, AND OTHER DEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS

CELLULAR LEVEL CHANGES:IN RESPONSE TO EXPOSURE TO ESTROGEN LIKE CHEMICALS: WHETHER WEAK OR STRONG, THE ESTROGENIC RESPONSE OF A CHEMICAL, IF NOT OVERCOME, WILL ADD EXTRA ESTROGENIC BURDEN TO THE SYSTEM.

IMMUNOTOXICITY: FOOD ADDITIVES, NATURAL PRODUCATS SUCH AS MYCOTOXINS, PRODUCTS USE IN THE PHARMACEUTICAL, FARMING, CHEMICAL AND CONSUMER PRODUCTS CREATE IMMUNE PROBLEMS, AND HYPERSENSITIVITY. NEURODEVELOPMENTAL PROCESSES CAN BE AFFECTED, LEARNING MEMORY, MOTOR ACTIVITY, STARTLE RESPONSE

REPRODUCTIVE ORGAN DAMAGE: EARLY OR DELAYED PUBERTY, EARLY PREGNANCY LOSS, INFERTILITY, LOW BIRTH WEIGHT, MENSTRUAL IRREGULARITIES, PREMATURE BIRTH, STRUCTURAL (CARDIAC DEFECT, FUNCTIONAL- LEARNING DISABILITY, BIRTH DEFECTS, AND SUBFERTILITY.
