Everyday Chemicals Linked to Infertility

Infertility is far more common than most people think. According to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, approximately 6.1 million couples in the U.S.—about 10 percent of the reproductive-age population—experience fertility problems.

And as scientists are starting to discover, even tiny exposures to certain chemicals could throw reproductive systems into a tizzy.
