This abstract, from the Journal of Toxicology [226 (2-3): 90-8], speaks of the alleged association between some phthalates and testicular toxicity. As the potential adverse effects of environmental changes on male reproductive health have recently generated much public and scientific concern, this study aims to review the existing data that supports or discounts the association between phthalate exposure and the decline of human male fertility, especially in developed countries.
