Male sperm counts drop; the Pill to blame?
Catholic World News - December 07, 2012
Men’s sperm counts have fallen dramatically since the 1990s, a major French study has found—prompting scientists to search for an explanation of the problem, which has major implications for human fertility.
The Daily Mail report on the French study lists a few possible environmental causes, but does not explicitly mention the most likely explanation: the sharp increase in estrogen levels in the water supply, which can be traced to the widespread use of contraceptive pills.
