Based on the book, _ Our Stolen Future_, this website (first mentioned in the March 8, 2002 NSDL Scout Report for Life Sciences) provides information and updates regarding endocrine disruption. The site is produced by zoologist John Peterson Myers, one of the book's authors. _ Our Stolen Future_, originally published in 1996, "examines the ways that certain synthetic chemicals interfere with hormonal messages involved in the control of growth and development, especially in the fetus." For those unfamiliar with the book, the site offers a Book Basics section with summaries of the chapters, excerpts, central points, and more. The website also contains a New Science section with subsections on Disease Resistance, Wildlife Impacts, Broad Trends, and Reproduction, to name a few. In addition, the site offers a collection of annotated links as well as links to recent news stories, and reports on pertinent scientific studies.
