In 40% of the cases of infertility are due to male factors. Sperm counts have been cut in half in the last fifty years and the quality of sperm is declining. In a healthy male, 85% of the sperm produced has DNA-damage. There are recent studies that are now pointing the finger at pesticides and chemicals in our water as the cause to men’s declining fertility. Many of the fertility challenges men face can be linked to two main culprits. Endocrine disrupting compounds found in synthetic chemicals like phthalates mimic estrogen in the body and can have a negative impact on the hormonal balance. The endocrine system is responsible for the intricate dance of hormones that are constantly ebbing and flowing. In men this can cause a decline in testosterone and affect the quality of the sperm.
The pesticides found on produce can have a HUGE effect on men’s hormonal balance. Pesticides mimic estrogens in the body which can cause a decrease in testosterone, and cause hormonal imbalance.
“Men with high levels of three common pesticides in their urine are more than 10 times as likely to have low-quality sperm than men who haven’t been exposed to the chemicals”
