Editor's preface
Mot du rédacteur en chef

As government agencies consider regulating so-called endocrine-modulating chemicals, the World Wildlife Fund and others say it's not too soon to take simple steps to reduce the risk — such as discouraging children from chewing plastic (page 261).

Couverture :
Alors que certains organismes gouvernementaux envisagent de réglementer les substances chimiques dites endocrinotropes, le Fonds mondial pour la nature et d'autres intervenants affirment qu'il n'est pas trop tôt pour adopter de simples mesures de réduction du risque — par exemple, inciter les enfants à ne pas mastiquer du plastique (page 261).
