The Disappearing Male

The Disappearing Male

THE DISAPPEARING MALE: According to a recent documentary from the CBC: ‘The male birthrate is on the decline globally – how much are chemicals to blame?… The last few decades have seen steady and dramatic increases in the incidence of boys and young men suffering from genital deformities, low sperm count, sperm abnormalities and testicular cancer. The Disappearing Male is about one of the most important, and least publicized, issues facing the human species: the toxic threat to the male reproductive system. Found in everything from shampoo, sunglasses, meat and dairy products, carpet, cosmetics and baby bottles, [these chemicals are] called “hormone mimicking” or “endocrine disrupting” chemicals and they may be starting to damage the most basic building blocks of human development.’ Thanks to Western Paradigm for publicizing this film.
