It appears that a variety of chemicals used in the food chain enters our bodies and appears to be affecting the hormones. A study on otters has found that pollutants in rivers could be affecting their reproduction adversely.
Scientists have discovered a worrying trend about shrinking male reproductive organs in otters. The same could be affecting human men too.
Research into the water mammal points out that modern chemicals could be causing the problem of shriveling male sexual organs.
This could have similar implications in humans and not surprising that a good many boys are facing problems with reduced sperm counts, sex organ malformation and undescended testicles.
'If we are to protect our wildlife, we need good information on the reproductive health of key species. These findings highlight that it is time to end the complacency about the effects of pollutants on male reproductive health.'
