How are environmental toxins causing infertility?

Environmental toxins causing infertility, While much of the reduction in fertility globally is directly or indirectly by choice, a rising number of couples, particularly in industrialized nations, find conception more challenging and abnormalities in infants more often. According to some research, it is pretty clear that metals and chemicals in the air, food, water, and health-and-beauty aids are harming fertility in many surprising ways. These toxicants are causing relentlessly decreasing sperm count & function in men, while women are experiencing gradually worse ovulation causing anovulation, damaged implantation, and loss of pregnancy.


Human fertility is diminishing globally. According to the studies, 50% of the drop in the number of babies born per woman for the last six decades is due to the choice of new-age couples. Another key cause of this developing loss of fertility is the rising body load of atmospheric toxins causing infertility in both males and females.

Environmental toxins could cause infertility in fundamentally 4 ways:

  1. Endocrine disturbance– this affects the functioning of metabolism, sexual functionalities, and mood.

  2. Women with the highest levels of PCBs (an industrial chemical used in consumer products) have a serious 50% fall in getting pregnant.

  3. Damage to the male reproductive system – exposure to pollutants has been linked with huge sperm DNA fragmentation.

  4. Impaired fetal viability by weakening the woman’s reproductive system.

What are Environmental toxins?

Chlorinated pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, dioxins, bisphenol A (BPA), and organophosphate pesticides and herbicides, are lesser known but hugely present in our environment. They are the worst fertility disruptors. Moreover, many other substances such as metals, chemicals, and air pollutants severely harm fertility.

Impairment through Toxins only reduces natural fertility (a natural way to conceive due to male, female, or both), due to which in vitro fertilization (IVF) has come to help rescue and restore human fertility and has helped many couples with children.
