Regarding behavior disorders, works on mice or rat have shown the effects of these xeno-hormones used even at very weak dose, time of fetal exposition being crucial.

Works are less numerous for humans but recent analysis of the spontaneous Hhorages cohort brings demonstrative data. Analogy between animal and man is discussed as well as the effects of bisphenol A and organophosphate pesticides.
