Non­stick fry pans make pe­nis smaller

Globe - - HEALTH REPORT -

GUYS ex­posed to the chem­i­cals found in non­stick cook­ware come up short, say ex­perts who found PFCs in­ter­fere with male hor­mones and af­fect pe­nis size.

Re­searchers at Italy’s Univer­sity of Padua say PFCs — which were used in Te­flon coat­ing un­til 2013 — cause male sex or­gans to be “sig­nif­i­cantly” smaller. Af­ter test­ing 383 adult sub­jects, sci­en­tists say those who grew up in PFC pol­luted ar­eas had penises nearly a half-inch shorter and 6.3 per­cent thin­ner than healthy men.
