Summary
The last few decades have seen a dramatic increase in cases of low sperm count, sperm abnormalities, and testicular cancer - while, in more than 20 industrialized nations, the male birth rate has steadily declined. This program examines the phenomenon and its likely cause: synthetic chemicals found in everything from common plastics to meat and dairy products. Investigating these so-called "hormone mimicking" or "endocrine disrupting" chemicals, the film shows how they may be starting to damage the most basic building blocks of human development. Expert commentary comes from Dr. Shanna Swan, director of the University of Rochester's Center for Reproductive Epidemiology, and many other respected researchers
