Study on the impact of EDCs on male health
A new study (commissioned by the Nordic council) finds that the damage to male reproductive health from exposure to hormone (or endocrine) disrupting chemicals is likely to cost many millions of euros every year in the EU.
The report only looks at the costs of a small number of disorders of male reproductive health – testicular cancer, infertility (due to low semen quality), hypospadias (malformation of the penis) and cryptorchidism (undescended testicles). The study also makes recommendations to reduce exposure to hormone disrupters.
