Pollutants, inorganic or organic, ionic or neutral, have the unmistakeable sign of men kind. They are the slow dead, which kills the life in our planet, kills our kids too, and kills us as well. Does life in Earth have a chance? This is a difficult question to answer. The pollution is so intense in some places of our planet that life has become compromise in them.

A recent study involving more than 30 000 women in the USA suggests that endocrine-disrupting pollutants, EDPs, are linked to earlier menopause. Just as another study done over 2 732 women suggesting that polyfluoroalkyl Chemicals has the same effects as EDPs. And what to say about the recent report alerting the raising mercury content in tuna at a level of 3.8% per year since 1998? Countless examples can be given.

The question still remains: are humans driving the planet till dead?

This question will be answered, or better to say, try to be answered during the 1st International Conference on Pollutant Toxic Ions and Molecules, PTIM2015 that will be held in November 2015 in Caparica, Portugal.
