I've read articles online claiming food or liquids that come in contact with plastic and then are consumed, lowers testosterone.
Articles I've read:
But then I've also read some articles somewhat contradicting this: http://theconversation.com/are-plastics-making-men-infertile-43751
I'm wondering if there are any studies that can give a final conclusion to this?
EDIT: I'm talking about plastics that we come in contact with every day. For example:
- Plastic bottles
- Plastic food containers
- Plastic wrap around vegetables and meat
- Plastic lining in cans
- Plastic sanitary pipes in our homes (PVC)
Most of these plastics contain chemicals like BPA, DEHP or DBP. I'm curious if and how these chemicals (and potential other chemicals in the products listed) lower testosterone, when their contents are consumed.
