Also another study in small mouth bass, 85% displayed the synthetic hormone inducing "inter-sex" as cause for decreasing population. Ecologists are starting to become anti-pill for such reasons. It has been around for decades, yet presently"..more than 100 million women use the pill." With that huge magnitude it is understandable how water is being affected, and how ecological damage is surmounting.
This led me to wonder what they effects are for humans, since this synthetic hormone may also remain in our water. Even if it is in small amounts, could this be a reason that youth appear to be going through puberty earlier?
It would be interesting to have data regarding the presence of EEDC's in water sources, as well as what level promotes a reaction, and if synthetic hormones incite maturation. I believe more research should be invested into to ensuring better ingredients, to allow women to still have control over their bodies yet in a more sustainable, natural way.
