Posted Tue Feb 26 2008: from Science Daily (US):
Male Fertility May Be Harmed By Mix of Endocrine Disrupters
"...pregnant rats were exposed to a cocktail consisting of three chemicals that all inhibit the effect of the male sex hormone testosterone: The drug flutamide and the pesticides vinclozolin and procymidone. The three chemicals were administered in doses which are harmless individually. Concurrent exposure to the three substances did, however, show significant cocktail effects. The male rats did, among other things, develop female characteristics in the form of retained nipples and severely malformed external sexual organs. Sixty per cent of the male rats were, for example, born with hypospadias [an open urethra]."

We produce a lot of endocrine disrupters.
Say, maybe we can genetically engineer ourselves to be immune to them!
