Reproductive Health Declines as Chemicals Exposure Increases

Image: Reproductive Health Declines as Chemicals Exposure IncreasesTroubling national trends show increases in reproductive health problems as the widespread use of certain chemicals has increased dramatically.

A new analysis of available data makes several recommendations for U.S. chemicals policy to address the growing health concerns and potential links to toxic chemicals.

Among the recommendations is a call for greater public disclosure of chemical safety information, increased federal research on safer chemical substitutes, and removing political influence from assessments of chemical safety.

The analysis, Reproductive Roulette, produced by the Center for American Progress (CAP), draws on numerous scientific studies that show a clear degradation over the last several decades in both male and female adult reproductive health nationwide, as well as more developmental problems among young children.

At the same time that the nation's reproductive health has deteriorated, the number and amount of potentially harmful chemicals have exploded, as has Americans' exposure to such chemicals. The report cites scientific studies identifying linkages between exposure to chemicals and the reproductive disorders that are on the rise.

Despite these studies, more information is needed about the amounts of chemicals people are exposed to and how combinations of chemicals impact a person's health, especially developing fetuses and children, according to the report.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
