Survey says! Top PPCP research questions identified by environmental scientists
from Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management
Pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) are a hot topic in environmental science. Trace PPCP chemicals end up in the environment, after being disposed of in sewage and other waste systems. From synthetic estrogens that feminize male fish to concerns about resistance to antibiotics, this is a growing area of research and public attention. Yet many potential and long-term effects on human and ecosystem health remain largely unknown.
