A new study has linked shrinking penises in males to pollutants in the water, including the water from taps across the globe. The chemicals, known as endocrine disrupting chemicals, are being used in commercial enterprises, including agriculture and manufacturing. These chemicals find their way into the water supply, food supply, and soil as runoff from farms and factories.
The study examined male otters and the shrinkage of their penises. The higher the concentration of these legal endocrine disrupting chemicals, or EDCs, the smaller the penis. Worse, male offspring were born with malformed penises, undescended testicles, and low sperm counts.
In addition to the smaller sized penises, these male otters experienced high rates of testicular cancer.
It looks like protecting the environment actually does make you a bigger man.
