It is common to hear that women taking conception do not have a large amount of female hormone in their natural waters due to inadequate wastewater purification, and there have been surprising effects on fish in their bodies. And the man?In the case of the Bees, a gender-alteration has also been observed with the strong estrogen. If these substances get into our drinking water, the picture is even more frightening, and many people are confronted with the increasingly common infertility problems.
Female hormones are present in ivory waterContrary to this widespread belief in North America, birth control pills are responsible for about one percent of the estrogen contamination of water supplies. In 2011, researchers analyzed a number of studies related to this topic and found that a large proportion of sex hormone, other than the human hormone, has different side effects in living organisms, such as fertility problems.
Among fertile women in the United States, about 12 million are taking oral contraceptives, and their urine actually contains estrogen, which goes into the sewage system. Since US wastewater purifiers almost completely remove the synthetic estrogen 17-alpha-ethinyl estradiol (EE2) from the water, it cannot be responsible for the above effect.
They were later wondering what other source of this material could be released into the water. It has been found that natural estrogens derived from soy or dairy products and organic fertilizers are present in concentrations higher than synthetic EE2 in the waters of the United States. In addition, men, children, and women who do not take the oral contraceptive pill also contain estrogen.
Few analyzed research suggests that organic matter is the source of 90 percent of the amount of estrogen released into the environment, and if the animal litter used for fertilization contains only about 1 percent of the water in the water.
It is true that in Hungary there is currently no uniform database on exactly what substances are tested for in each area, and since the diagnostic procedures are not uniformly developed, we do not know exactly what is in the tap. However, the above study presents a new light on some aspects that may arise when choosing a method of conception in an (environmentally conscious) woman.
