Chemical pollutants in home degrade fertility in men and dogs

Hereā€™s another reason to take environmental degradation seriously. A recent study suggests that environmental contaminants found at home and in oneā€™s diet have the same adverse effects on male fertility in both humans and in domestic dogs. There has been increasing concern over declining human male fertility in recent decades with studies showing a 50% global reduction in sperm quality in the past 80 years. A previous study by the Nottingham experts showed that sperm quality in domestic dogs has also sharply declined, raising the question of whether modern day chemicals in the home environment could be at least partly to blame.
