Abstract
Male and female reproductive disorders related to exposure to toxic agents, particularly in the modern work place, are reviewed. Reproductive disorders surveyed include stillbirth, spontaneous abortion, birth defects, male and female reproductive cycles leading to infertility, insufficient or defective sperm production, unsuccessful implantation of the fertilized ova, and functional defects not readily observed at birth. The author concludes that a variety of chemical and physical toxicants may adversely affect the reproductive process and outcome, and that this problem is compounded by the large numbers of workers who are potentially exposed at the workplace. Further research of occupational health problems as they relate to reproductive outcomes is recommended as well as more systematic methods for detecting, reporting, and analyzing the effects of toxic agents on reproduction.
