Endocrine disruption may be associated with immune disruption with wildlife indicating weak resistance against virus infection. Further endocrine disruption may be associated with DNA injury. The injury can be explained by DNA adduct formation of endocrine disrupting chemicals themselves after oxidation, or formation of reactive oxygen species or reactive molecules during oxidation and reduction inside the cell. Those reactive molecules
