What Happened to the Boys?

Paralysis Through Analysis links to a Canadian study showing a linkage between endocrine disrupting compounds in the environment and female skewed birth ratios. Evan takes the position that this could potentially sound warning bells for other industrialized towns.

My question for this study is in what way are the compounds compromising the births of males. Are there children born female who are genetically XY? Or are males being miscarried due to errors created by conflicting chemical signals? What I am asking for is the linkage between cause and effect in this system.

Link via Open Source Media (Link in the Blogroll). So far so good with this new project, folks.
