By Javier Domingo del Pozo.
Last Update: 11/10/2014

There are several environmental pollutants that have a certain impact, especially on male fertility, such as the direct exposition to heat that takes place at some work environments, exposition to radiations, some pesticides and dioxins, etc. Also, the chemical substance Bisphenol A (BPA), which has a negative impact on fertility and is used in the production of certain materials of daily usage (such as plastics, gums, PVC...) that are difficult to avoid, as they are present for example in the layer that covers the inside of food cans.
