Exposure to estrogen puts fish at greater risk of disease and premature death, according to a new federal study.

The U.S. Geological Survey study showed that estrogen exposure reduces a fish's ability to produce proteins that help it ward off disease and pointed to a possible link between the occurrence of intersex fish and recent fish kills in the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers.

Question is it all by design or a cause and consequence of our industrialize , pharmasize society. Beyond the increasing amount of fertility issues , this might also explain why there's more people who are homosexual . Regardless what better way to pacify and weaken the males in a society .

Plenty of gays are "manly". just look in prison.

Anywho, they seriously have got to take a look into this. I'm not drinking sink water any more nor bottled water. I just drink milk and orange juice. Milk is cleaned, usually, and orange juice is fueled by rain water. Never felt better. The water simply tastes disgusting these days.

It's not an accident, you don't happen to drop that many drugs in the water. It's a plan and it seems to be working. The fertility rate in men is dropping like a stone. We are already 80% sterile and it's not going in the right direction.

I don't know what's wrong with estrogen in the water supply.

I mean, I'm kind of enjoying my new breasts. UU.
