Recent scientific research finds that man's addiction to chemicals — including pesticides and birth control pills — is harming male offspring in species across the world.  The report found that male fish in British lowland rivers develop eggs in their testes, 40 percent of male cane toads have become hermaphrodites in areas of Australia, male alligators in Florida suffer from lowered testosterone and higher estrogen levels, and baby boys who have been exposed to chemicals in pregnancy are being born with smaller penises and feminized genitals. According to Dr. Pete Myers, one of the world's foremost authorities on the matter:  "We have thrown 100,000 chemicals against a finely balanced hormone system, so it's not surprising that we are seeing some serious results. It is leading to the most rapid pace of evolution in the history of the world."
