Infertility is a reproductive system disease characterized by failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after one year or more of regular sexual intercourse without using contraception. In 8% of couples who are unable to conceive, male infertility is the issue.
The cause of male infertility is likely multifactorial, but evidence indicates that exposure to environmental toxins may play an important role in its etiology. Research has established a connection between sperm abnormalities and exposure to phthalates which are chemicals found in plastic food containers, medical equipment, shampoos, deodorants, and other personal care items as well as in many other things. Another chemical found to affect sperm is Benzene. This is found in cigarette smoke, gasoline fumes and vehicle emissions. A Study of men exposed to Benzene at work observed a decline in total sperm count and sperm motility, as well as an increase of abnormal sperm.
