According to new findings, toxins in the environment are reducing the size of male reproductive organs, which could have major implications for human existence.

Dr Shanna Swan, a well-known American epidemiologist and writer, indicated in her book "Count Down" that environmental toxins and microplastics are affecting the development of babies.

Erectile dysfunction affects the majority of men nowadays, and babies are born with reduced reproductive organs as a result of this.

The toxins in the environment and an unhealthy lifestyle that causes hormonal imbalance are the primary causes of the shrinkage of the male reproductive organ.

The study shows that in the last 40 to 50 years, the number of male sperm has decreased by 50 per cent, which is an issue of concern for a long time.

Toxic compounds used in food packaging, such as phthalates, have a detrimental effect on hormones.

The reproductive organs of lab rats exposed to phthalates are smaller, according to multiple media sites.
