Prevent GI Disease

From eNewsletter 5/15/2023

DID YOU KNOW that one little discussed cause of infertility is elevated levels of lead and other heavy metals?

Reproductive health is vulnerable to environmental toxins, particularly endocrine-disrupting chemicals that interfere with the body's normal hormone synthesis, secretion, and signaling. Cadmium, lead, and mercury are three primary heavy metals listed by the World Health Organization as among the top 10 toxicants of major public health concern.

A new study from Medrxiv, funded by the National institutes of Health, examining the link between infertility and heavy metals in the blood, found that as lead levels rose in female subjects, they had less of a chance of getting pregnant.

While this study did not include male subjects, there are studies linking higher heavy metal levels and lower sperm count and sperm viability.
