Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEncyclopedia chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Pesticides are toxic substances that are deliberately released into our environment to kill or control living organisms. They have many beneficial qualities with regards to their intended use, but also carry with them potential harmful side effects for other living organisms that are inadvertently exposed, including humans. In this article, we will discuss some of the possible toxic effects they can have on male reproductive health. Of particular concern are pesticides with endocrine disrupting properties, which have been shown to interfere with male reproductive development. Early life exposure can prevent proper masculinization, having permanent consequences for the offspring.
