BPA and Low Sperm Count

There’s more and more news about hazards of Bisphenol A or BPA.  Some of the most recent comes from Kaiser-Permanente, indicating that even small amounts of BPA exposure can lower sperm counts and sperm motility in men. 

         To me this qualifies as a wonder, though a negative one.  BPA apparently mimics certain hormones and disrupts processes controlled by those hormones.   We don’t yet know exactly how this comes about, but eventually researchers will figure at least some of it out.  And it will illustrate one or more wonders about the way our cells function when they are free of poisons.

         I looked up the video in this post so that I can show it to you here, and so that I can refer back to it next time.  In my next post, I’ll write about an obesity mystery that might be related to BPA also.
