Men Under Threat: How the decline in male reproductive health may be linked to exposure to chemicals

Men Under Threat: How the decline in male reproductive health may be linked to exposure to chemicals This leaflet briefly describes the evidence that hormonally active chemicals may be implicated in the deterioration of male reproductive health, gives some statistics on the rates of malformation of the penis, undscended testicles, sperm counts and cancer of the testicle. Written for those affected and a wide public audience, the leaflet explains the hypothesis of testicular dysgenesis syndrome (TDS) and how all the above problems may be linked to exposure to these chemicals during a male baby’s pre-natal development. The leaflet also provides advice on what people can do to minimize their exposure.
