Researchers would rather spent 20 years studying the ”feminisation” of men and believe technological revolts and exposure to chemicals are the main factors behind the phenomenon.
They communicated: “There are effects and we are starting to see them.
“Men are changing. The alpha male is worked and they are less masculine: shorter penises, reduced testosterone and mans breasts.”
Carlo Foresta, director of Andrology and Reproduction Medicine in Padua, Italy, answered: “Cases of infertility have risen. Before, men were producing 300-400 million sperm per ejaculation and now it’s almost 30 million less.”
Everyday chemicals are being blamed for this slow-but-sure transmutation in men with phthalates – which are present in soaps, perfumes and many other habitual items – and bisphenol A (BPA) being singled out as the main culprits.
Bisphenol A dexterous Professor Nicolas Olea from the University of Granada said: “It is announce in canned food. Even a film that looks like workable is made of bisphenol A and a part can go into the food we eat.
“But the biggest source of peril to this substance is the canned food.”
The feminisation process starts with the leak to these chemicals from when we are in the womb.
Richard Sharpe, professor of the Mid-point for Reproductive Health at the University of Edinburgh, said: “We are not all programmed to be female. If something didn’t find during foetal development, we would all be female.
“That is the baseline syllabus. Becoming male means to modify this programme. Testosterone is indispensable for a man. What we’re seeing is that the development programme activated by testosterone is no longer inducing properly.
“Some scholars speak of the male feminisation but I find it myriad accurate to call it a failure of masculinisation”.
Italian newspaper La Stampa roused for calm and said men were not about to vanish of the face of the Earth tomorrow.
But it forewarned: “Testosterone levels of a 60-year-old man now are much lower than the levels of his ancestor, penises of young people today are shorter by almost a centimetre compared to the close by and there are extreme cases – but not so rare – of men who develop breasts.”
