Reproductive Health Declines as Chemicals Exposure Increases

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, August 01, 2009 | 0 comments

Troubling 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.

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.
