Chemicals May Put an End to Male Fertility

May 14, 2009
Scientists warn that increasing number of products and food contain chemicals that disrupt male sex hormones and damage male reproductive system.

Richard Sharpe, a professor of the Medical Research Council, says that exposure to harmful chemicals found in bathing products, cosmetics and food led to a growing number of boys born with birth defects, higher rates of testicular cancer, and lower sperm count. These conditions are associated with the disturbances of male hormone testosterone.

Scientists said that while exposure to a single chemical is not harmful, the abundance of products containing hormone-disrupting chemicals may create a dangerous effect on male fertility.

Professor Sharpe explained that the mixture of chemicals disrupting male sex hormones represent a significant risk to male fertility. It is recommended to reduce exposure to these chemicals to a minimum. This especially refers to pregnant women, who are susceptible to various environmental factors that may have long-term impact on baby's health. Scientists warn that women should limit the use of cosmetics and other potentially dangerous products to a minimum during pregnancy.

The most common chemicals linked to hormone disruption are:
Pesticides
Many pesticides such as herbicides and insecticides in food are known to interfere with male hormonal function, because they mimic female sex hormones.
Phthalates
Used in popular products such as plastic boxes, cosmetics, toys, soaps, wood finishers, some medical devices and more are also linked to numerous health problems including hormonal disorders.
Bisphenol
It is used as an ingredient in a number of plastic products, including infant bottles, liners of food cans, mobile phones.

to avoid soy which may lead to poor sperm quality and ahoolcl which can lower testosterone.Caffeine can go either way three or more drinks a day may hamper fertility but other studes show that caffeine "may" help with a low sperm count.Hope this helps!
