Exposure to environmental chemicals which have major risks for human by targeting different organs in the body has significant impacts on biological systems. For several years there have been a great amount of interest on the environmental endocrine disruptors (EEDs) and their relation with human health. Therefore, the aim of this review is to summarize all evidence regarding varieties and different physiological disruptions on the human and possible involved mechanisms, to discover the risk factors of EEDs and to prove the association between endocrine disruptions and human diseases.
