Great question, Dr. Colborn and TEDX have primarily done two things: 1. literature review of the potential health effects of 350 chemicals (out of 1000ish) and found that >30% were suspected or known EDCs based on other research. They did not measure the activity or the presence of the chemicals in water. 2. Air monitoring study of chemicals related to drilling and fracking studies. We propose a field study to sample water and measure the EDC activity in water in the laboratory. The next step will be to identify the chemicals in water at fracking sites that contribute the activity. Does that answer your question?

Thanks again Nadia. We have applied for NIH funds and the reviews we got back were very positive. We will do more work and reapply! :-)
