shemale fish

an interesting article i just read at discovery.com:

Around the world, increasing numbers of male fish are developing female traits — growing new sexual organs and sometimes even producing eggs. The phenomenon has been blamed mostly on chemicals that get into the water and mimic the female hormone estrogen.

But a new study puts some of the blame on an entirely different class of chemicals — ones that block the action of male hormones called androgens.

…the work brings up plenty of questions about what chemicals in our rivers and streams might be doing to human health.

“At the end of the day, wildlife are fantastic sentinels for potential human impacts,” Tyler said. “If it happens in fish, it can happen in humans.”
