A new study has discovered that bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical found in most plastics, may be contributing to the global decline of male fertility. During this study, researchers exposed mice to the chemical at birth for a short period of time, then measured their sperm count when they reached sexual maturity. In two out of the three strains of mice experimented on, sperm count was significantly lower. Even when stem cell transplants were conducted to help boost sperm count, it remained at the same low rate. Given the prevalence of BPA in our society today, this is an alarming discovery. However, others have rightfully pointed out that not all animal studies translate to humans. But while more studies are being conducted, it might be a wise move to minimise your exposure to BPA.
