Abstract

Description

Agriculture in the United States uses millions of pounds of pesticides and herbicides per year. At the same time, many amphibians are ‘feminizing’ – meaning male frogs and toads, among other animals, are producing eggs instead of sperm. Are agricultural chemicals to blame? What are the implications for human fertility and health? Join us as one of the nation’s leading experts on the effects of agricultural chemicals on hormones, Dr. Tyrone Hayes, answers these questions and more.
