Keeping Your Penis Small
Full Credit to LiberPaul for this laugh-inducing post:
Penis size of the animals from the polluted lake was smaller than animals from the less-polluted lake.
â€œThis is important because it is not just an alligator story. It is not just a lake story. We know there has been a dramatic increase in penile and genital abnormalities in baby boys,â€ Guillette said.
A followup study by another scientist involving healthy couples with 5,000 healthy babies also found reduced penis size with higher contamination levels.
Hear that ladiesâ€¦. Maybe spraying the lawn isnâ€™t so important after all.
I'm waiting on the link, but I'll just assume it's from a decent source for the sake of making another environmental point today. Simple question for you: what do you think happens to the chemicals and drugs you take after you expel them from your body in the form of urine?
I'm not sure of the answer, but I am sure that they have some kind of environmental impact, and that they come back "full circle" one way or another. I've read not a few reports now about things like asexual frogs and die-offs in bird and fish populations, and it's odd how little discussion there is about why this is happening. Pollution is obviously a major factor, but I hope people are also thinking about the "other" kinds of pollution. Smog and garbage aren't the only problems.
I'm no scientist, but I do wonder how the mix of pills and drugs and pesticides and enzymes we pour into our local biospheres impact human (and overall environmental) health. Perhaps the current wave of irrational paranoia and reality-avoidance can be traced back to too much Viagra in our water supply? Corporate science sure isn't going to answer that question anytime soon, so I'll probably never know.
