Abstract:

Sperm production in humans has suffered a spectacular drop; by 50% in 50 years. In addition, testicular cancers and congenital malformation of male reproductive organs are on the rise. This disturbing documentary looks at findings that point to pollutants as the cause of endocrinal changes in the male reproductive system. Problems have also been found in the animal kingdom. A Danish researcher has discovered feminisation of certain fish and frogs, as well as sexual malformation in alligators and birds. Scientists are pointing to a long list of molecules and substances that affect the endocrine system, released into the market by the chemical industry. They are known as "endocrine disruptors." Among them are PCB s, DDT, and pesticides. The plastics in baby bottles, the ingredients in cosmetics, the wrapping used for food could all be contributing to endocrine problems. Men in Danger brings into focus yet another area where pollutants threaten human and animal life.
