Could Common Household Products Cause Infertility?

Posted: 1/1/2015 by Coastal Fertility Specialists

CFS Physicians, John Schnorr and Michael Slowey are partnering with MUSC and NIST researchers at the Hollings Marine Laboratory to examine how common ingredients in everyday products such as plastic water bottles, makeup, hairspray, deodorant, and other environmental exposures negatively affect female egg quality and quantity. It is the doctors’ belief, based on preliminary human research, and more definitive research performed on animals in the wild, that these toxins can cause irreversible damage to a woman’s reproductive system. For this reason, the physicians at Coastal Fertility Specialists are asking for patient volunteers currently undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment to become part of this important study with worldwide implications.
