Strict relationships between environmental pollution and food contamination have been widely described in several outbreaks all over the world. In this work, we describe a research project funded by the Italian Ministry of Health, in the framework of food safety assessment and evaluation, for consumer protection, regarding some Endocrine Disruptor Chemicals (EDCs). Bisphenol A (BPA), nonylphenol (NP), octylphenol (OP) and some heavy metals were chosen as the main topics of our study. The approach to this research project is multi-disciplinary. The professional competence of the partners will be complementary. This will ensure that the information will be complete and integrated. The main purposes of the project are the following: to define new biomarkers for monitoring sea pollution by EDCs monitoring of contamination levels of some EDCs in fish and mollusk from Italian market to develop novel bioremediation systems of waters polluted by the EDCs of interest

Abstract

Strict relationships between environmental pollution and food contamination have been widely described in several outbreaks all over the world. In this work, we describe a research project funded by the Italian Ministry of Health, in the framework of food safety assessment and evaluation, for consumer protection, regarding some Endocrine Disruptor Chemicals (EDCs). Bisphenol A (BPA), nonylphenol (NP), octylphenol (OP) and some heavy metals were chosen as the main topics of our study. The approach to this research project is multi-disciplinary. The professional competence of the partners will be complementary. This will ensure that the information will be complete and integrated. The main purposes of the project are the following: to define new biomarkers for monitoring sea pollution by EDCs monitoring of contamination levels of some EDCs in fish and mollusk from Italian market to develop novel bioremediation systems of waters polluted by the EDCs of interest
