Chemicals From Nonstick Pots Reduce Penis Size – Report


A group of researchers have found out that the chemicals in nonstick pots, waterproof products and firefighting equipment are dangerous to the male reproductive system, making men’s penises smaller.

A study by researchers at the University of Padua, Italy, showed that 383 young men, including 212 men who have been exposed to perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs), have terrifying problems with fertility.

According to the study published in the journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, men exposed to these chemical have shorter penis, lower sperm count, lower sperm mobility and reduction in anogental distance.

“This study documents that PFCs have a substantial impact on human male health as they directly interfere with hormonal pathways potentially leading to male infertility.

“We found that increased levels of PFCs in plasma and seminal fluid positively correlate with circulating testosterone and with a reduction of semen quality, testicular volume, penile length, and AGD [anogenital distance].” the study read.

PFCs found in a number of everyday items, including nonstick coating on cookware, and fast food packaging, may harm hormone signalling, leading to ‘significantly’ smaller penises and less mobile sperm.

The Italian researchers found PFCs will bind to testosterone receptors and reduce levels of the male sex hormone used in the body.

As a result, men grow up with smaller penises, less healthy and mobile sperm and a shorter distance between their scrotum and anus – a sign of lower fertility.

The chemicals can get into the body by being absorbed by the intestines from food and drinking water, or be breathed in.
