Put Down the Water Bottle, For Serious

Listen up. Here’s a new reason to get one of those trendy reusable water bottles. A study came out stating BPA, a chemical found in plastic water bottles and other common products, affects sperm.

Two hundred Chinese factory workers participated in the study, finding that BPA lowers sperm count and quality. While scientists knew that BPA was bad for humans, this was the first study to state it could affect male virility.

Ladies, you aren’t safe either. Ninety percent of Americans have BPA coursing through their systems. BPA consumption has been also linked to behavioral changes, diabetes, and worst of all, weight gain.
