Chemical Castrator Atrizine

More reports of atrizine, a pesticide widely used in the US, including heavily used on grass seed fields in the mid valley, castrating frogs and turning one in ten of male frogs exposed into females.

Sure, further studies are needed, to see if this drug, filtering into our drinking water, or in the dust in the air kicked up out of the fields during tilling or even field burning, can cause human reproductive health issues like reproductive tissue cancers. But maybe this chemical is the answer to world overpopulation if it decreases sperm count and feminizes men. Just kidding there.

I don't like atrizine. I've had endometriosis for years and dioxins and substances containing dioxins or pseudo estrogens are linked to endometriosis and no doubt other hormone related illnesses like breast cancer.
