Exposure to a chemical found in plastic items like bottles could lead to erectile dysfunction in men, according to a new study published in a journal titled Human Reproduction. Researchers conducted a study on 634 male workers at four factories in China over five years, and found that those exposed to bisphenol A, or BPA, faced four times greater chances of suffering from erectile dysfunction, and were seven times as likely to have difficulty with ejaculation.

BPA is found in thousands of products including sealants, hard plastic bottles and canned food linings, and according to the Washington Post, it has been detected in the urine of 93 percent of the US population.

While researchers said that people shouldn’t be worried by the finding, it is kind of scary. And the findings will not only alarm ordinary men, but also plastic factory owners, whose businesses may be at stake.

Environmentalists will probably be happy though; this study will be a great way to make both men and their wives stay off plastic.
