Findings have revealed that the human penis is getting smaller in size, and a scientist claims to have discovered the reason behind the shrinkage of the ever-important human-male-member, OYOGist.com reports.

Dr Shanna Swan

A professor of environmental medicine and public health at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, Dr. Shanna Swan has blamed environmental pollution for the shrinkage of the human penis in her book, “Count Down”. Dr. Swan claimed that her work discovered that more baby boys are now born with penises of questionable little sizes.

More female and male children are being born with abnormal reproductive organs because of plastic by-products known as phthalates, Dr. Swan claimed.

Calling it an “existential crisis”, she said the problem will affect fertility rates.

The harmful plastic by-product that is responsible for this malformation is often found in toys, packaged food, Dr. Swan explained. The issues arise when humans are exposed to the harmful chemical that is used in plastic manufacturing which can interfere with the production of hormones in the endocrine system.

According to her findings, since phthalates imitate the hormone estrogen, they can interfere with natural hormone production. According to findings, phthalates play a role in hindering sexual development in newborns and how adults react to sexual stimuli.

Interestingly, the research has also claimed that the fertility of other animals were affected because of pollution. According to Dr. Swan, tests carried out on rat fetuses that were exposed to the harmful chemical, phthalates, showed similar behavior.
