|Intersex Fish and Human Birth Control Chemicals are Genuine Concern...|
We first got wind of this about 15 years ago but it's a story that's about to come roaring back.
There's a ton of video talking about intersex fish but none of them will display a grotesque deformity (I do not recommend you search the internet for 'male bass with boobs' or the like, trust me on this one!) as there is no simple way to identify an intersex fish. With males it may be defined as having eggs growing within their testes.
The following video from the Chesapeake Bay Program is one of the more level headed and thoughtful reviews of the subject.

For the biologists among us the most recent supporting scientific research can be found here:
"Transgenerational effects from early developmental exposures to bisphenol A or 17α-ethinylestradiol in medaka, Oryzias latipes" (Nature)
For supporting government data, I found this interesting:
"Intersex Fish Now in Three Pennsylvania River Basins" (USGS)
For more of what might be called 'anti-government' ruminations, the commentary by the folks at "InfoWars" do a great job of dramatizing the potential conspiracy:
Solutions are possible, and the folks at Live Science have done a great job with that information, available HERE
Something tells me this story is going to get worse before it gets better...
