50 Percent Fertility Reduction Because of These Household Chemicals

Male fertility has been on the decline for at least 40 years, with a 50 percent global reduction in sperm quality noted from 1938 to 2011.  A similar decline in sperm quality has been observed in dogs living in human households, with sperm motility declining by 30 percent over a 26-year period.  The corresponding declines suggest that something in the environment, and likely in our homes, could be causing the drop in fertility among both dogs and people. In the canine study, the researchers linked certain environmental chemicals to sperm problems and suggested they could also be responsible for the sperm quality declines in humans — a notion supported by a recent study published in Scientific Reports.  Read more...
