Though there is no complete list of reproductive hazards in the workplace, a number of workplace substances have been identified as reproductive hazards for men. Reproductive hazards are substances that affect the ability to have healthy children. Learn more about specific exposures found to have reproductive effects in men and how you can lower your exposures. Scientists are just beginning to understand how reproductive hazards affect the male reproductive system. Although more than 1, workplace chemicals have been shown to have reproductive effects on animals, most have not been studied in humans.

Reproductive effects caused by chemical and biological agents - OSHWiki

Abstract Recently, many studies have found a decrease in semen quality which has increased the focus on male reproductive health. Occupational hazards are by far the best documented in reproductive epidemiological research. Generally, occupational exposures have been divided into physical exposures heat and radiation , chemical exposures solvents and pesticides , psychological exposures distress , exposure to metals and welding. The evidence for an adverse effect on male reproduction of several occupational and environmental exposures and toxicants, such as heat, ionizing radiation, inorganic lead, dibromochloropropane, ethylene dibromide, some ethylene glycol ethers, carbon disulfide and welding operations, is strongly supported in well-designed epidemiological studies. For other agents, the association is only suspected or suggested and needs further evaluation before conclusions can be drawn.

Environmental Toxins and Infertility

Gary Hutchison receives funding from European Union Horizon Within just a few generations, human sperm counts may decline to levels below those considered adequate for fertility. That means men reading this article will on average have half the sperm count of their grandfathers. And, if the data is extrapolated forwards to its logical conclusion, men could have little or no reproductive capacity from onwards.
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals EDCs are exogenous compounds with natural or anthropogenic origin omnipresent in the environment. These compounds disrupt endocrine function through interaction with hormone receptor or alteration of hormone synthesis. Humans are environmentally exposed to EDCs through the air, water, food and occupation.
