our yoga mats hurting your chances of

00:00:02,939 –> 00:00:06,150
getting pregnant researchers at Harvard

3
00:00:06,150 –> 00:00:07,830
University have found a potential link

4
00:00:07,830 –> 00:00:09,780
between products that contain certain

5
00:00:09,780 –> 00:00:12,330
chemicals and infertility in women among

6
00:00:12,330 –> 00:00:13,530
the products in which scientists

7
00:00:13,530 –> 00:00:16,039
discovered this link our yoga mats

8
00:00:16,039 –> 00:00:17,960
organophosphate flame retardants

9
00:00:17,960 –> 00:00:21,119
otherwise known as PF RS can be found in

10
00:00:21,119 –> 00:00:23,519
products that use polyurethane foam such

11
00:00:23,519 –> 00:00:27,119
as car seats sofas and yoga mats these

12
00:00:27,119 –> 00:00:29,310
PF RS can be absorbed by the body

13
00:00:29,310 –> 00:00:31,470
through physical contact and they also

14
00:00:31,470 –> 00:00:34,040
migrate out of objects into the air

15
00:00:34,040 –> 00:00:36,780
researchers analysed urine samples from

16
00:00:36,780 –> 00:00:38,850
211 women and found that more than

17
00:00:38,850 –> 00:00:40,620
eighty percent of its participants had

18
00:00:40,620 –> 00:00:44,789
traces of PF RS in their systems women

19
00:00:44,789 –> 00:00:46,170
with higher concentrations of the

20
00:00:46,170 –> 00:00:48,120
chemicals are said to be 40 percent less

21
00:00:48,120 –> 00:00:50,010
likely to become pregnant or to have a

22
00:00:50,010 –> 00:00:52,079
live birth compared to those with lower

23
00:00:52,079 –> 00:00:54,930
concentrations of the chemicals flame

24
00:00:54,930 –> 00:00:57,360
retardant penta BD II was phased out

25
00:00:57,360 –> 00:00:58,440
more than a decade ago

26
00:00:58,440 –> 00:01:00,059
after it was found to cause negative

27
00:01:00,059 –> 00:01:03,510
health effects PF ARS were introduced as

28
00:01:03,510 –> 00:01:06,479
a safer alternative however these latest

29
00:01:06,479 –> 00:01:07,950
studies have shown that the supposedly

30
00:01:07,950 –> 00:01:10,290
safer flame retardant may still cause

31
00:01:10,290 –> 00:01:14,700
hormone disruption human reproduction is

32
00:01:14,700 –> 00:01:18,780
a complicated thing is this the end of

33
00:01:18,780 –> 00:01:22,680
humanity well maybe for Westerners the

34
00:01:22,680 –> 00:01:24,630
author of a study on male sperm count is

35
00:01:24,630 –> 00:01:26,400
warning that humans may become extinct

36
00:01:26,400 –> 00:01:28,650
however the research only shows a sharp

37
00:01:28,650 –> 00:01:30,659
decrease in the sperm count of Western

38
00:01:30,659 –> 00:01:33,329
men over the past 40 years the study

39
00:01:33,329 –> 00:01:35,520
followed over 42,000 men who provided

40
00:01:35,520 –> 00:01:38,280
semen samples between the years 1973 to

41
00:01:38,280 –> 00:01:41,460
2011 the results show a fifty nine point

42
00:01:41,460 –> 00:01:43,530
three percent decline in total sperm

43
00:01:43,530 –> 00:01:45,630
count and men from North America Europe

44
00:01:45,630 –> 00:01:48,090
Australia and New Zealand whereas no

45
00:01:48,090 –> 00:01:49,920
significant decline was found in South

46
00:01:49,920 –> 00:01:52,590
America Asia and Africa the apparent

47
00:01:52,590 –> 00:01:54,299
decrease is perhaps linked with body

48
00:01:54,299 –> 00:01:56,009
weight smoking and lack of physical

49
00:01:56,009 –> 00:01:58,740
activity some people are skeptical of

50
00:01:58,740 –> 00:02:00,960
the findings and they suggest the tests

51
00:02:00,960 –> 00:02:02,460
don’t accurately account for men

52
00:02:02,460 –> 00:02:04,759
suffering from infertility problems

53
00:02:04,759 –> 00:02:07,710
other industry experts say studies that

54
00:02:07,710 –> 00:02:09,660
claim to show a decline in sperm count

55
00:02:09,660 –> 00:02:11,580
are more likely to get published than

56
00:02:11,580 –> 00:02:12,060
those that

57
00:02:12,060 –> 00:02:14,310
do not which if true would indicate the

58
00:02:14,310 –> 00:02:18,140
public is getting spewed information

59
00:02:18,260 –> 00:02:22,860
endometriosis explained a new study has

60
00:02:22,860 –> 00:02:24,780
found cancer related mutations and

61
00:02:24,780 –> 00:02:27,060
patients with deep endometriosis and

62
00:02:27,060 –> 00:02:28,530
interesting find given that the

63
00:02:28,530 –> 00:02:30,650
condition itself is not cancerous and

64
00:02:30,650 –> 00:02:32,880
Demetrios assists largely considered a

65
00:02:32,880 –> 00:02:34,890
hormonal disorder but these new findings

66
00:02:34,890 –> 00:02:36,780
open up new possibilities from the

67
00:02:36,780 –> 00:02:38,760
diagnosis and management of the often

68
00:02:38,760 –> 00:02:41,040
debilitating condition the mucous that

69
00:02:41,040 –> 00:02:42,840
lines the inside of the uterus called

70
00:02:42,840 –> 00:02:44,850
the endometrium normally thickens and

71
00:02:44,850 –> 00:02:46,319
sheds in accordance with a woman’s

72
00:02:46,319 –> 00:02:48,299
monthly cycle but for those with

73
00:02:48,299 –> 00:02:50,250
endometriosis the lining grows outside

74
00:02:50,250 –> 00:02:52,530
the uterus it still thickens and sheds

75
00:02:52,530 –> 00:02:54,510
but cannot exit the body leading to

00:02:54,510 –> 00:02:57,330
irritation and inflammation adhesions

77
00:02:57,330 –> 00:02:59,640
often form in the pelvic area and blood

artificial ovaries using 3d printing

00:03:24,060 –> 00:03:26,010
technology and have successfully

00:03:26,010 –> 00:03:28,130
restored fertility and sterilized mice

00:03:28,130 –> 00:03:31,140
the artificial ovary is a 3d printed

enough to be self-supporting

94
00:03:36,840 –> 00:03:38,940
the scaffold is filled with ovarian

follicles which contain immature egg

96
00:03:41,489 –> 00:03:44,310
cells the structure is then transplanted

97
00:03:44,310 –> 00:03:46,350
into infertile mice where the follicles

98
00:03:46,350 –> 00:03:48,590
continue to mature until ovulation

99
00:03:48,590 –> 00:03:51,180
researchers say an ovary implant could

100
00:03:51,180 –> 00:03:53,430
potentially help female cancer survivors

00:04:07,080 –> 00:04:09,330
significant for infertile women hoping

to carry a baby to full term the

108
00:04:12,030 –> 00:04:13,500
Cleveland Clinic has announced trials

109
00:04:13,500 –> 00:04:15,240
for uterus transplants that will help

110
00:04:15,240 –> 00:04:17,579
some 50,000 women born without a uterus

111
00:04:17,579 –> 00:04:20,000
or who have uterus problems get pregnant

112
00:04:20,000 –> 00:04:22,048
once a patient is approved for the

113
00:04:22,048 –> 00:04:23,880
procedure she has given hormones to

114
00:04:23,880 –> 00:04:26,010
stimulate egg production the egg is then

115
00:04:26,010 –> 00:04:29,670
fertilized in vitro and frozen a donors

116
00:04:29,670 –> 00:04:31,530
uterus and part of her vagina is then

117
00:04:31,530 –> 00:04:33,540
implanted into the recipient within six

118
00:04:33,540 –> 00:04:36,300
to eight hours a year later embryos are

119
00:04:36,300 –> 00:04:38,730
inserted one at a time into the fully

120
00:04:38,730 –> 00:04:40,860
healed uterus until the patient becomes

121
00:04:40,860 –> 00:04:43,590
pregnant after giving birth to one or

122
00:04:43,590 –> 00:04:45,360
two babies via c-section the

123
00:04:45,360 –> 00:04:47,520
transplanted uterus will be removed to

124
00:04:47,520 –> 00:04:48,630
keep the patient from having to

00:04:48,630 –> 00:04:50,700
continuously take anti-rejection drugs

128
00:04:56,970 –> 00:04:58,740
US team will be using organs from

deceased donors to minimize

candidates in September 10 women aged 21

132
00:05:06,390 –> 00:05:07,860

following extensive medical and

134
00:05:10,050 –> 00:05:13,400
