Looks at findings from researchers in Europe and the United States which show a dramatic drop in human sperm production over the past 50 years, as well as similar problems in the animal kingdom. Research is pointing to a long list of molecules and substances that affect the endocrine system--including those found in plastics, pesticides, and cosmetics--as the cause.
Exploring the question of whether synthetic chemicals are decreasing male reproduction, this documentary examines both human and animal models. At the University of Rochester Center for Reproductive Epidemiology, Dr. Shanna Swan noticed that within the last decade, the sperm quality of otherwise healthy young men has dramatically declined.

Over the past three decades, the developed world has become increasingly overweight, even after years of struggling to eat less and exercise more.
