Summary
"Scientists around the world are finding alarming changes in human reproduction and health. There is strong evidence that sperm counts have fallen dramatically. Testicular, prostate, and breast cancer are on the rise. Different animal species are even showing signs of "feminization" or "changing sex," the males actually producing eggs like females. According to scientific evidence compiled worldwide, the prime suspect in these worrying findings is the increased exposure to chemicals that can mimic the female hormone estrogen and other hormones." "Believed responsible for genital abnormalities and cancers across a wide range of species, these hormone-disrupting chemicals may pose a threat not only to our human potential, but to our very survival." "Through extensive interviews with fertility experts and scientists worldwide as well as members of the chemical industry, Deborah Cadbury provides a balanced, cogent, compelling argument that propels us toward a disturbing conclusion."--Jacket
