Cd in combination with other heavy metals such as Cr (chromium), As (arsenic), and Pb (lead) may account for decreased male fertility rate in the developed countries observed by reduced sperm counts and testis function. the effect of heavy metals on the female reproductive system. Special emphasis is given to one of the most toxic and health threatening agents – Cd, Pb and Hg.

Others are relatively harmless but can be toxic in large amounts or certain forms such as silver, indium, and metals such as lead, cadmium, and mercury are “natural” elements but can be harmful to health, especially over a long period of time or in high doses.. Heavy metals are pervasive in food, water, air, tobacco smoke, and. Conclusions: Environmental deterioration can lead to the elevated risk of human exposure to heavy metals, and consequently, health implications including disturbances in reproduction. It is therefore important to continue the investigations on metal-induced mechanisms of fertility impairment on the genetic, epigenetic and biochemical level. Although exposure to several of these toxic metals is prevalent, human studies of exposure to metals and altered hormone levels to date are quite limited. Alterations in reproductive hormone levels, even at degrees that are considered subclinical, may be associated with or lead to declined fertility and reproductive health, increased risk of.

Although some metals (e.g., Cu, Se and Zn) have protective effects on the male reproductive system in low doses, heavy metals can accumulate to toxic levels and result in poor semen quality and. Lead and other heavy metals. Working with lead or other heavy metals could increase your chances of having a miscarriage, a stillbirth, or a child with a birth defect.
