Males of All Species are Becoming More Female
January 01, 2009
Various studies are indicating that unregulated chemicals released into the environment are causing male animals and humans to take on feminine characteristics.
Thousands of chemicals released into the environment are interfering with animal and human endocrine systems. These chemicals, nicknamed “gender-benders,” are causing the males in many species to become feminized.
In British lowland rivers, 50 percent of male fish were found to be growing eggs in their testes. Hermaphrodite polar bears have also been born.
Since all vertebrates have similar sex hormone receptors, the feminization of other animals could indicate a similar pattern in humans.
