Europe Bans Penis-Shrinking Chemical; America Does Not

The chemical bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, also called DEHP, is used in the production of PVC. It's also toxic and associated with smaller penis size and incomplete descent of testes in baby boys.

The European Union has banned the chemical from all household plastics. Although the U.S. has banned DEHP from toys and child care products, it’s still allowed to in many housewares.

Good reports:

“And because DEHP has been known to leach into liquids with which it comes in contact ... liquids that are then consumed -- it's actually quite easy for people to ingest far too much of it (especially considering that any may be too much).”
