Intersex Conditions Caused by Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals

Gender dysphoria and intersex conditions are on the rise due to fetal exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) while in the womb. A 2016 study says an urgent need exists for hormone disruptors like bisphenol A, phthalates, dioxins, furans, organochlorine pesticides, poly-chlorinated biphenyls, to be regulated.

BPA & BPS Alter Fetal Sex Specific Regions in The Developing Brain

A 2019 Study describes how xenoestrogens, bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol S (BPS), can alter a developing fetus's sex specific regions in the brain, as well as changes in reproductive organs, both of which can lead to reproductive health concerns in adulthood.

Bisphenol A Exposure Linked to Sexually Dimorphic Disorders

A recent study discovered exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) caused sexual dimorphism and estrogenization which may explain the increased incidence of various metabolic disorders.

Bisphenol A Exposure Linked to Development of Intersex Infants

An increasing number of children in our modern world are born intersex (ambiguous genitalia/hermaphrodite, pseudohermaphroditism, etc.) which studies are linking to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) exposure, like bisphenol A, phthalates and dioxins.

How Common are Intersex Conditions?

An American Journal of Human Biology study on how much variance there is within male (XY) and female (XX) chromosomes and their subsequent intersex conditions.
