Abstract

The effect of natural, environmental, or manufactured substances on endocrine organs is a current topic of discussion. Recently, some toxicants have been suggested to promote endometriosis; therefore, attention has turned to the role of environmental factors as a stimulant for endometriosis growth and maintenance. This article reviews the influence of various toxicants on endometriosis.
