(NaturalNews) More reports detailing the damaging effects of exposure to chemicals have been released. Though important to both women and men, this particular finding is especially important to men. This includes their partners if they are wanting to start a family someday.

While much has been made about overheating laptops, bike seats that are narrow and antidepressants causing a reduction in the amount of a man's sperm, there is another, more sinister and less obvious issue. This is his exposure to chemicals on a frequent basis, including those chemicals that he might not even know about, or that he might not realize are harmful until they begin to make a difference in his life.

One way for men to be more aware of the potential issue is to know where he might come across these chemicals in his everyday life. There are two chemicals, in particular, that seem to have infiltrated almost every aspect of everyday life. These are bisphenol A, more popularly known as BPA, and phthalates.

BPA carriers

BPA is found in many plastics. Fortunately, as more effects become known about BPA, many manufacturers are offering BPA-free alternatives. However, there are some surprising sources of BPA that a man might be exposed to during his everyday life, and not even realize the harm they can cause. For example, up to 40 percent of all cash register receipts have a BPA coating on them.

A more common way for a man to be exposed to BPAs is through canned foods, though. This is because almost all cans used in food production contain BPAs.

Phthalates carriers

Phthalates are commonly associated with vinyl products, such as shower curtains, plastic bags, vinyl flooring and more products that a typical man will interact with on a daily basis. In addition, phthalates are also found in many personal hygiene products including shampoos, soaps and cleaners.

Other sources of chemicals

There are a number of other chemicals that can cause a man's sperm count to plummet. PCBs are chemicals whose use has been banned. However, there is such a great amount that has accumulated in the environment that many of the most popular species of fish are laden with it.

The chemicals that are designed to kill insects on produce can often linger long after they have done their job. When this residue is ingested by men, it can cut their sperm production resulting in fewer sperm. Fluoride, that chemical that is added to many municipal water systems as a way to help strengthen teeth, has a dark side. It can disrupt the production of sperm, and lower a man's sperm count over the course of his life.

The most important thing to remember is that a man needs to be aware of the chemicals that exist in his everyday life. This can help him reduce his exposure to these harmful chemicals.
