Plastics and the small penis effect
Apologies for the shock value, but talk about an issue hitting where it hurts.....
Yet another reason to eschew plastic products: they just might damage your child's potential manhood.
Exposure to phthalates, an additive used in many plastics and personal care products, has been linked to abnormalities in childrens' reproductive development, including smaller penis size.
Granted, the world is overpopulated - we certainly don't need more casanovas, BUT.......
Good news: there are safer alternatives, you just need to know what to look for. Start with avoiding the # 3 or letter V on the so-called recycling symbol on the bottom of plastic products.
And check out this entertaining little short, "Sam Suds the case of PVC - The Poison Plastic". Even phlalates can be phunny.
