Effects of propyl paraben on the male reproductive system



Effects of propyl paraben on the male reproductive system



Food and Chemical Toxicology 40(12): 1807-1813



Parabens are p-hydroxybenzoic acid ester compounds widely used as preservatives in foods, cosmetics, toiletries and pharmaceuticals. These compounds exert a weak oestrogenic activity as determined by in vitro oestrogen receptor assay and in vivo uterotrophic assay. In a previous study, it was demonstrated by the present author that exposure of post-weaning mammals to butyl paraben adversely affects the secretion of testosterone and the function of the male reproductive system.
