    A published 2011 study reveals most plastics release bisphenol - like products, even those claiming not to.

    We have all been beaten over the head for the past 50 years that sperm counts decrease worldwide , in nearly every species, and it's a complete mystery to science.

    Guess not anymore.

    The article seems to suggest the researchers have identified or synthetised themselves plastics that don't release these bisphenol- like products; maybe there might be a conflict of interest here.

    The suspicion that these plastics is responsible for this sperm count reduction has been out there for years (general public friendly books). After reading RP however, I wondered if just the diet (pufas) couldn't be a more likely explanation: modern diet is estrogenic, not just plastics.

    Perhaps.
    But the reduction in sperm count happens even in wild animal species, across all sizes and types ( herbivores, carnivores, omnivores).

    Surprisingly little talk about detoxing these substances from your body. I couldn't find much else than eat cruciferous veggies & fiber. Any thoughts? I suspect that I got a boatload of some plastic toxins few months back during washing a shitty plastic carpet.

    Thanks, I need to look further into the subject, but seems that these are some gruesomely nasty chemicals. Likely they are now stored in my fat tissues and elsewhere.
