Hormones that mimic estrogen are turning up in many of the plastic items we use, and estrogenic herbicides are feminizing male animals and fish. Some male frogs now have female organs, and some male fish even produce eggs. In a Florida lake contaminated by these chemicals, male alligators have tiny penises. Let’s hope this doesn’t happen to us humans!
The problems that are associated with humans who are exposed to these chemicals include breast cancer, infertility, low sperm counts, genital deformities, early menstruation and even diabetes and obesity.
