Among the most widely used herbicides that interfere with the thyroid system are 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), acetochlor, aminotriazole, amitrole, bromacil, bromoxynil, pendamethalin, and the thioureas (Brucker-Davis 1998; Howdeshell 2002; Short and Colborn 1999).
Briefly, there are chemicals that interfere with iodine uptake (the herbicides 2,4-D and mancozeb, several PCB congeners, and thiocyanates) and peroxidation at the molecular level (the herbicides aminotriazole and thioureas, the insecticides endosulfan and malathion, and PCBs).
