Abstract
Purpose: A convenience-oriented lifestyle in young people is accompanied by greater consumption of and exposure to endocrine disruptors, which can affect reproductive health, especially in women. We aimed to identify factors that influence protective behaviors against endocrine disruptors among female college students in South Korea. Methods: Using a cross-sectional survey design, we recruited 199 female college students. A self-administered questionnaire was used, and data were collected at the site. Results: A healthy lifestyle, information utilization, receiving peer advice on avoiding exposure to endocrine disruptors, and a history of environmental illnesses were found to be significant factors, explaining 42.0% of the variance in protective behaviors against endocrine disruptors. Conclusion: Health consequences of environmental hazards and importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle need to be emphasized in young women's healthcare. Health professionals should advocate for and empower women to protect themselves against endocrine disruptors.
