Can our low fertility rates be tied to the chemicals found in our drinking water?

    A lack of a bathroom or a hygienic facility and the lack of safe drinking water has been linked to a higher risk of infant mortality. Higher infant mortality rates are also significantly higher in babies with a low birthrate.

    Studies in mice show that NaF has no effect on fertility, but it does effect their birth rate. This could mean that humans could still get pregnant, but their babies might have a lower birth weight if the mothers drank unsafe water, leading to a higer rate of infant mortality.
