A new study in the journal Science Direct, indicates that the astounding rise in male infertility and erectile dysfunction, or ED, could both be linked to global pesticide use. Essentially, this increase in the worldwide chemical use could be what’s been bugging men.
ED, the condition formerly known as “impotence,” used to be relatively rare. Yet today more than 53% of males over 40 have experienced some degree of erectile dysfunction.
The researchers of this study admit that there are many contributing elements that could account for the increase. These include a general increase in lifespan, stress, and other psychological and physical factors. However, they also believe that the ingredients in pesticides also need to be considered.
They point out research has shown that Atrazine, one of the world’s most common pesticides, has “demasculinizing” effect on frogs. Additionally, it’s caused tadpoles to switch genders in some cases. In another study, Atrazine was also found to, “lower levels of the male hormone testosterone in sexually mature male frogs by a factor of 10. It then lowered levels to those in normal female frogs.”
The authors of the study conclude that pesticides and herbicides should be considered a cause for increasing reports of ED, because of their known, and proven ability to inhibit testosterone production.
Other Links to Pesticides and ED
In addition to their known effect on testosterone production, the researchers said that the chemicals in pesticides can contribute to ED because they are known to:
- Cause oxidative stress and cellular death.
- Inhibit the production of certain neurotransmitters that are involved in getting an erection.
- Damage the connective tissue that surrounds the corpora cavernosa of the penis.
- This tissue is instrumental in obtaining an erection.
Dealing With ED
Is pesticide use responsible for the dramatic increase in cases of men with erectile dysfunction? Perhaps, but regardless of the reason why we are seeing an increase in cases of ED. The fact of the matter is more and more men are reporting trouble in the bedroom.
When it comes to ED the cause of the problem, is less important than the effect (except in the few cases where it is the result of a serious medical condition).
