Interview with Dr. Kent Holtorf, Medical Director of the Holtorf Medical Group 
Dr. Kent Holtorf:
Dr. Kent Holtorf, Medical Director of the Holtorf Medical Group …
And you look at the environmental factors actually also, you look at all the plastics, pesticides and all the toxics are all estrogenic. And the average testosterone level is actually much lower per age than it was 10 years and even lower than 20 years ago.
In fact testosterone levels have dropped so much that laboratories that test blood have lowered the level of what they consider normal levels of testosterone in men.
When we send the blood to the lab the lab sends back 95% of people as normal. The lowest and highest 2.5% are considered abnormal. And the major lab Quest lowered the normal range for testosterone for men they cut the lower limit in half. So I called the medical director and said, “What’s going on?” And they said, “Well men are lower now.” And it’s true!
As a physician Dr. Holtorf is seeing changes in his patients.
Before you’d have men coming in at age 50-60 with low testosterone, now we’re getting men in their 20tys and 30tys. The average sperm counts are dropping significantly. Drinking out of plastic water bottles the bisphenol A (BPA) is very estrogenic and so you get these guys drinking out of all these plastic water bottles as they’re on the treadmill – they’re becoming less masculine.
