How factual are reports that chemicals used in plastics are slowly converting men into women?
The US Environmental protection agency (EPA) revealed that, chemicals like Phthalates, Bisphenol A (BPA) and Polychlorinated biphenyl are to blame for this. Are these mere allegations?
Metrosexual men came from somewhere. That they're products of the plastics industry wouldn't be surprising.
This is a lie! The horror of this "Old Soccer Wives Tale" that the leakage of Phthalates is the cause of this and other "scary" effects is unwarranted. Like with fuel emissions levels that are continually raised to make already safe levels appear dangerous (politics) AND the current Dept. of Labor establishing that nearly 1 million Americans' don';t need the rest of their unemployment benefits (in 34 states - at the SAME TIME! - politics) proves that pressure from pressure groups applied to the right administrations at the right time can outlaw ANYTHING. Don't forget - Hearst control of the media -hemp "evil" - chemically-treated lumber to paper "good". It's called "Cooking the Books".
The Non-Elected Smirks at You President initiated this ridiculousness from sound decisions for INFANT toys! As a toy designer I have been deliberately inhaling the awesome smell of PVC for decades, and so has my son - absolutely no harm. If however I made a meal of them, then possibly anything synthetic could eventually harm. The solution to all you overbearing and overprotective Soccer Moms/Wives - control your own kid! Teach them that not everything is edible!!! This is YOUR responsibility! No, I guess it's better to have the Gov't. regulate your child's diet. Sheesh. Ignorant Humans!
They have a role, but these are not the only causes. The male sperm count, and testosterone level overall is less than in previous generations. Low fat diets compromist testoserone. Alcohol compromises sperm to a degree, and interferes with the endocrine system. However people did drink a good amount of alcohol in those times as well. Obesity may be a cuase, lack of exercise, lack of sleep, excess sugar can lower male hormones. Excess stress can lower male hormones as well. There is a whole gamut of reasons maybe plastics do contribute, but they are not the only reason.
You obviously did not read my hub on Phthalates...this chemical is used in almost all plastics,toys, cosmetics, and food packages...
The chemcal DOES NOT turn boys into girls OR men into women..it does however effect the hormones in SOME male fetus, thus making surgery necessary in some instances..
