enter the human food chain. If consumed at levels above safe thresholds, they can increase the risk of cancer and induce cardiovascular diseases in humans. Supra-optimal levels of estrogens have been linked with increased incidence of breast cancer in females and prostate cancer in men, although cause-and-effect is debatable. Estrogens preferentially bind with receptor cells in breast tissues leading to cell proliferation that can ultimately form tumors ( Adeel et al., 2017 ). Loos et al. (2018) describe a proposal of the Joint research Centre (JRC) of the European
