Common Kitchen Chemical Found to Have Effect on Penis Size

A chemical commonly found in non-stick cookware has been found to have an effect on penis size, according to a new study.

The researchers, based in Padua, Italy, revealed that water contaminated with Perfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs), which have already been found to harm hormone signaling in the reproductive system, is responsible for smaller penis development. It also caused young men who consumed it to have sperm that was less mobile, and abnormal male reproductive tract development.

Wrote the researchers: “This study documents that PFCs have a substantial impact on human male health as they directly interfere with hormonal pathways potentially leading to male infertility. We found that increased levels of PFCs in plasma and seminal fluid positively correlate with circulating testosterone and with a reduction of semen quality, testicular volume, penile length, and AGD [anogenital distance].”

The researchers undertook the study because the water in the region of Padua was known to have high-levels of PFCs.

2. Recently I read an article that said

the effects of Climate Change are making men more sterile, but doesn't effect penis size. Stock up on oysters, balute and other "manly" foods.
