Chemicals that mimic hormones. They can make you intersex, cause certain cancers and so are generally not so good for you.
A range of substances have been shown to exhibit ED activity, usually in in vitro assays, but some in whole animals. These include:•natural and synthetic hormones, •phyto-estrogens,•pesticides,•organic solvents,•pharmaceuticals (contraceptives and steroids),•alkylphenols and alkylphenol-polyethoxylates,•phthalates,•organo-halogen compounds (like polychlorinated- and brominatedbiphenyls, diphenyl-ethers and dioxins),•some heavy metals [Colborn, 1996; WWF, 1996; EPA, 1996]

Contact your local water authority and ask them whether they test for EDCs and PFAS.

The answer is usually: "They aren't there, so we don't need to test". If this is their response, be very afraid.
Probably worth a reasonable panic.

Then there are the DBPs. Nasty.

NDMA
N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA)N-Nitrosodimethylamine, or NDMA, can occur in drinking-water through the degradation of dimethylhydrazine (a component of rocket fuel) as well as from several other industrial processes. It is also a contaminant of certain pesticides. NDMA has recently been identified as a disinfection by-product of chloramination (by the reaction of monochloramine with dimethylamine, a ubiquitous component of waters impacted by wastewater discharges) and, to some extent, chlorination. NDMA can also be formed as a by-product of anion-exchange treatment of water

Luckily, gin is an antidote to all known contamination by industrial chemicals...

Gwyneth Paltrow will have a cure for the lot as soon as she hears about the problem. It'll likely be a variant of the candle that smells like her vagina. Her vagina is a truly versatile part of her anatomy. For everyone else the only organ that smells is their nose.

Not gullibility.
This public health statement tells you about 1,4-dioxane and the effects of exposure to it.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identifies the most serious hazardous waste sites in the nation. These sites are then placed on the National Priorities List (NPL) and are targeted for long-term federal clean-up activities. 1,4-Dioxane has been found in at least 31 of the 1,689 current or former NPL sites. Although the total number of NPL sites evaluated for this substance is not known, the possibility exists that the number of sites at which 1,4-dioxane is found may increase in the future as more sites are evaluated. This information is important because these sites may be sources of exposure, and exposure to this substance may be harmful.

Yeah, but that's only chemistry. It's not like it's a real science is it?

I have a patent that relates to 1,4-dioxane. It was the solvent in the original patent for a drug. Our plant would not use it. It was a three step synthesis. I had to tinker with two of those steps to get rid of that solvent and replace it with another solvent.
