Men Are Getting Less Manly

A new study shows that the male gender is in danger. The research shows that a “host of common chemicals is feminizing males of every class of vertebrate animals, from fish to mammals, including people.”  The days of the manly man may be a thing of the past.
The changes are due to widespread exposure to new chemicals. In recent years wildlife and humans have been exposed to over 100,000 new chemicals which are not adequately regulated. Many of these new chemicals have been identified as “endocrine disrupters” or gender-bending chemicals. These chemicals interfere with hormones, feminizing them. They are found in common household items such as food wrapping, cosmetics, furniture and electrical goods.

The report states:

Feminization of the males of numerous vertebrate species is now a widespread occurrence. All vertebrates have similar sex hormone receptors, which have been conserved in evolution. Therefore, observations in one species may serve to highlight pollution issues of concern for other vertebrates, including humans.

The effects are already being seen. In Florida, male alligators exposed to a certain pesticide have suffered from lower testosterone, higher estrogen levels and smaller testes. In Britain, male fish have been found developing eggs in their testes. Humans are also affected.  An American study shows that “baby boys born to women exposed to widespread chemicals in pregnancy are born with smaller penises and feminized genitals.” These boys are much more likely to want to play with dolls, than with G.I. Joe figures. These boys are also more likely to have a lower sperm count when they mature.

The report calls for change and regulation of the everyday chemicals we use. Otherwise, men may not exist at all.
