(Natural News) In the past eighty years, sperm quality has fallen by 50 percent, beckoning an infertility epidemic among men. Sperm can only be created when there is a healthy balance of hormones, dominated by testosterone. There are chemicals in the household environment that mimic the effects of oestrogen once they are inside the human body. These hormone-disrupting chemicals can reduce sperm production, hinder sperm motility, and damage their DNA. This silent hormone disruption epidemic is weakening man’s ability to reproduce, taking the life (testosterone) out of his masculine qualities, and carrying on a damaged DNA sequence into the next generation.
Oestrogen-mimicking chemicals cause DNA fragmentation in sperm, destroy sperm count and motility
There are two hormone-disrupting chemicals that significantly damage the modern male: DEHP (diethylhexyl phthalate) and PCB 153. These chemicals are found in modern day carpets, clothing, and upholstery. Even though they are not directly consumed, their breakdown into the immediate environment is breathed in and absorbed by the human body. Researchers from the University of Nottingham have measured similar levels of these chemicals in the blood of both men and dogs and have found that they have a devastating effect on both men and dog’s ability to reproduce….
