Where did my testicles go? Thank Cloned Food!

January 16th, 2008 · No Comments

It has been rumored that eating cloned meat, particularly beef can shrink the size of a males testes.  Doctors in Singapore have reported that if there is high doses of hormones used to facilitate the cloning process those same hormones could play havok with a males reproductive system.  One of the side-effects could be extenstive testicle shrinkage.

As seen last year in an interesting report on testicle shrinkage in polar bears as a result of polution we can expect to see similar problems if cloned foods are pumped with antibiotics and hormones.  I for one and not too eager to munch on any of this cloned food, are you?

The scientists found the higher the level of organohalogens in polar bear, the smaller testicle and baculum size and weight likely were. Ovary size and weight decreased as organohalogen levels rose as well.
