TTIP Controversy: U.S. pressured EU not to regulate hormone-damaging chemicals linked to health issues such as cancer/fertility/diabetes
TTIP Controversy: US Officials, Industry Lobbyists Pressured EU Not To Regulate Harmful Chemicals, Threatened Trade Deal

U.S. trade officials pressured the European Union (EU) not to regulate hormone-damaging chemicals that have been linked to health issues such as cancer, fertility and diabetes during talks over the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), according to documents obtained by Pesticides Action Network Europe.

The EU had been considering a new approach that would ban dozens of pesticides containing chemicals that disrupt the hormone estrogen, but it backed off under pressure from U.S. government officials and lobbyists. At stake was the controversial TTIP free-trade deal, which would lower trade barriers between the United States and Europe.

Endocrine disruptors can be found in products ranging from plastics to pesticides. Exposure to them is associated with cancer and infertility, and the European Commissionís Directorate-General for the Environment had been charged with developing criteria that would designate chemicals as endocrine disruptors. Once identified, those chemicals would be banned, and human and environmental exposure to those dangerous substances would be limited. That, at least, had been the plan, according to Pesticides Action Network Europe.
