Gynecology Obstetrics and Tuberculosis Specialist Op. Dr. Elçim Bayrak made striking statements about the relationship between the use of plastic bottles and infertility. He said that as a result of the use of the plastic bottle, especially in men, sperm parameters are seriously affected and this can lead to infertility.
Stating that the substance called Bisphenol - A, which is used in the production of plastic pet bottles, which is frequently used in the world, affects the body's hormone system when it enters the body with drinking water, and as a result, it has been determined by scientists that it causes infertility in men and women. Dr. Elçim Bayrak continued as follows; “As a result of recent experiments, it has been determined that Bisphenol – A substance imitates by taking on the form of estrogen, known as the female hormone, and due to this feature, the hormonal balance has changed in a way that leads to infertility.
Reduces the number of sperm, prevents fertility!
In the statements made by the World Health Organization, Op. Dr. Elçim Bayrak underlined that Bisphenol – A, which is used to harden plastic materials, reduces the number of sperm and causes DNA damage in sperm cells. Saying that as a result of DNA damage, the ability of sperm to fertilize the egg decreases and the chance of a healthy pregnancy with a healthy embryo decreases. Dr. Elçim Bayrak continued as follows; “Since the additive called Bisphenol-A reduces both egg production and the ability of the uterus to carry a healthy baby thanks to its imitation of estrogen, glass bottles should be the primary reason for preference, unless they have to.
Plastic bottled water is also harmful to pregnant women
Stating that the chemical additives used in the production of plastic bottles can cause miscarriage in pregnant women, they can also cause anomalies and premature birth in the unborn baby, Op. Dr. Elçim Bayrak continued as follows; “It should not be forgotten that whatever the pregnant mother eats and drinks, the baby in her womb takes the same into her body, so especially those who decide to be parents-to-be and pregnant women have to pay attention to their lifestyle, everything they use daily, as well as their diet,” he said.
