Sex Change - Sounds Fishy

The daily Mirror Reports.

A third of male fish in English rivers are changing sex due to 'gender-bending' pollution, alarming research shows.

Experts say female hormones from the contraceptive pill and HRT are being washed into our rivers and causing male fish to produce eggs.

The problem - which is country-wide - has raised fears that the pollutants could also be contaminating our drinking water - and even be affecting the fertility of men.

Is this really possible, I guess thats whats called survival of the fittest. Apparently no more male fish in the British rivers. Read the compelete story here.
