Yes, it does strike fear into a man’s heart to read about erectile dysfunction caused by an environmental contaminant, but Men, it’s true.  Sad way to find out about it:  men who worked in a factory with BPA contaminants.  It didn’t take long for the BPA exposure to cause erectile dysfunction either, just a few months.  And while these men had higher levels of BPA exposure in China than men in the U.S., it happened fast and it was serious, so lower levels might just take a year to cause wilting while higher levels affect performance within a month or two:

The men handling BPA were four times as likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction and seven times as likely to have difficulty with ejaculation, said De-Kun Li, a scientist at the Kaiser Foundation Research Institute

The workers studied did not have to spend years in the factory to develop problems – sexual dysfunction began in new workers after just months on the job, Li said.

Problems with ejaculation coupled with erectile dysfunction?  What man wants to take that kind of risk? Heck, what woman would want her man to take that risk?
