ALARM FOR MEN:  HORMONE-DISTRUPTING CHEMICALS HAVE FEMINIZED 80 TO 100 PERCENT OF MALE SMALL MOUTH BASS IN WISCONSIN WATER 

Known as endocrine disruptors, these chemicals are in soaps, plastics, industrial solvents, pesticides and herbicides, as well as human or animal medicines. Some occur naturally but hundreds are man-made and found everywhere that modern chemistry has improved people’s lives.
A United Nations report in February declared endocrine disruptors a “global threat” to wildlife and humans, particularly infants and children. Close to 800 chemicals are known or suspected to disrupt hormone function, but thousands in use have never been tested, the U.N. report said…. http://www.wisconsinwatch.org/2013/04/21/concerns-grow-about-hormone-disrupting-chemicals-in-wisconsin-water/
