Environment Program has released a 525-page report in conjunction with its upcoming Rio+20 conference on sustainable development that warns about “sudden, irreversible and potentially catastrophic changes” that will occur in the world if drastic measures are not taken to stop them.

Scientists are observing with increasing alarm that some very common hormone-mimicking chemicals can have grotesque effects.
