toxic pollutant chemicalsRecent studies have shown that male testosterone levels are falling at an unprecedented rate and that male reproductive health may be in serious trouble. One of the reasons for this decline points to environmental pollution issues, particularly chemicals known as xenoestrogens, which can lead to serious male reproductive problems. These compounds have a direct effect on testosterone, the hormone which stimulates sperm production, libido and muscular development and is largely responsible for all the physical characteristics that make a man, a man.

Testosterone and the Decline of Modern Male Health

Testosterone plays a key role in health and well-being as well as in sexual functioning. Not only is testosterone responsible for the sexual changes that occur at puberty, it also reduces fat, builds muscle and stimulates a man's sex drive. It also improves a man's mood, imagination and creativity and can even reduce the risk of diseases such as cancer and diabetes. When testosterone levels are low a number of symptoms can manifest including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, decreased sex drive and reduced muscle tone.

The latest disturbing estimates:

  • Today the sperm count of the average male is half of what it was 70 years ago.
  • 30-50% of all men in the U.S. have some form of erectile dysfunction.
  • 25-80% of men over the age of 40 are affected with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH)
  • 90% of men over the age of 80 show signs of prostate enlargement.
  • 25% of all men are affected severely enough to require medical attention which often involves surgery.
  • Approximately 32% of those undergoing surgery experience complications such as incontinence, impotence or enlargement of the breast tissue due to hormone imbalance.

Another sign of the decline in male reproductive health includes more frequent instances of prostate cancer and birth defects. Prostate cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among American men and affects one out of every nine males. Birth defects of the penis and undescended testicles in newborn males are also a sign of a growing problem. Because these reproductive problems are now appearing in animals in the wild as well, this suggests that the problem is part of an even greater environmental issue.

Xenoestrogens - Breaking the Balance

As it turns out, a major cause of the decline in reproductive health stems from an environmental pollutant known as xenoestrogen. Xenoestrogens are chemicals that mimic estrogen, producing an estrogenic effect in the body. Since male health relies on the proper balance between androgens (hormones like testosterone) and estrogen (the female hormones men also produce in small quantities), the introduction of xenoestrogens creates an imbalance which can result in increased body fat, reduced muscle mass, infertility, low sperm count, erectile dysfunction and reduced sex drive. It can also increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes in men.

The Source of Xenoestrogens

Whether men know it or not, they are being constantly exposed to xenoestrogens from a number of sources. One such source is the synthetic estrogens from birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy for women that is finding it's way into our drinking supply. A recent article out of Canada has reported a 'Skyrocket of Estrogen Levels' as high as '90 times the normal rate' in the St. Lawrence River near Montreal.

In addition to the contaminated water supply, we are also exposed to xenoestrogens through our food supply. Estrogen supplements are fed to chickens and cattle to increase egg, meat and dairy production which is passed directly to us when we eat those products.

Another source of xenoestrogens are the estrogenic chemicals such as PCP and thalates found in plastic materials which are accumulating in the world's soil, water and air. Combine all of these factors together and most men are practically overdosing on xenoestrogens.

Avoiding Xenoestrogens and Improving Health

An important part in improving sexual health is reducing your exposure to xenoestrogens and other harmful chemicals. If you haven't already, you should make sure to use some sort of water treatment appliance to filter your water. This will also remove fluoride from your drinking water which is known to reduce testosterone levels in men.

Even though red meat has been shown to stimulate testosterone levels in men, most commercially raised red meat contains xenoestrogens. By eating organically raised, grass-fed beef, you can not only reduce your exposure to xenoestrogens but also enhance your testosterone levels at the same time. You can also add body-boosting supplements to your diet which will increase your body's natural production of testosterone, human growth hormone, and DHEA.

Pesticides such as DDT and organochlorines are also considered xenoestrogens. You can reduce your exposure to these chemicals by eating organically grown food whenever possible and making sure non-organically grown food is washed in a natural cleaning solution.

Since heat will release these chemicals from certain materials, you should always avoid using plastic containers in microwave ovens. You should also avoid drinking water (or other beverages) from soft plastic bottles that have been exposed to heat. Make sure that food has been allowed to cool before placing it into a plastic container for storage.

The exposure to environmental toxins like xenoestrogens combined with poor dietary habits is contributing to the decline in health of the modern day man. Fortunately we can still choose to do something about it. Now is the time to take back control of our own reproductive health and work to protect and preserve our sexual wellness!
