Environmental chemicals may be obstacle for infertile couples
Ladies (and gents) - This is a MUST read!
Causes of infertility are numerous, ranging from hormonal imbalances, to defects of the uterus, to misshapen sperm, low sperm count or low sperm motility in men.
Some scientists now theorize that endocrine-disrupting chemicals in the environment also can reduce fertility. Endocrine disruptors are a class of more than 1,200 chemicals that can mimic or block hormones, including estrogen, the primary female sex hormone involved in pregnancy.
“These chemicals may affect the way hormones regulate many aspects of our bodies, potentially even the ability to get pregnant,” said Laura Vandenberg, a reproductive scientist at Tufts University.”
I also added it to my Facebook group for those of you that want to join a support group for healthy living (plenty of people in it that are not seeking help with fertility). Here is the link. http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/30daysofhealthyliving/ This is a PRIVATE group so no one outside the group can see what is being posted.
