Abstract

Encouragement of Studies on Reproductive Toxicology in Exposed Animals to Tannery Effluent

Tannery effluents constitute highly polluting residues, which can cause negative impacts to people’s health and the environment. However, studies that have investigated the effects of the exposure to these xenobiotics on the reproductive aspects of mammal experimental models are rare. This mini-review draws attention to the lack of studies involving this issue, encouraging the development of new research. Studies related to this aspect are important in view of its implications for the generation of scientific knowledge related to health, considering the hypothesis that exposure to tannery effluent can lead to increased sensitivity to pathological events.
