Food prepared in non-stick utensils causes small and short penis – Research

Researchers have found that such utensils have high components of a chemical called PFCs (perfluoroalkyl compounds) that could make penises of men who eat food prepared in them significantly shorter and thinner.

If the size and length of penises is a big deal for you as a man, then you might want to either stop entirely or minimise eating food prepared in non-stick utensils.

Researchers have found that such utensils have high components of a chemical called PFCs (perfluoroalkyl compounds) that could make penises of men who eat food prepared in them significantly shorter and thinner.

Women who place premium on the size and length of their partner’s penises might also want to find alternatives to non-stick utensils.

Scientists recently made a link between the size of a man's penis and cooking utensils used by their parents to prepare food which they ate.

They found that high levels of a chemical called PFCs (perfluoroalkyl compounds) that are used in non-stick frying pans can interfere with male hormones and make men's penises to be "significantly" smaller. 

PFCs, which appear to reduce levels of testosterone, are also found in greaseproof packaging and waterproof clothes. The issue is also said to affect teenagers who are still developing.

The research was conducted by researchers at the University of Padua in Italy and published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

They found that men from areas with high levels of PFC pollution had penises that were 12.5 per cent shorter and 6.3 per cent thinner. They measured 383 penises of men around the age of 16 to 22 who grew up in an affected area of Italy near the University and 171 from elsewhere.

It has also come to light that a river was polluted as a result of run-off from a chemical factory and water treatment plant. Men in this area had significantly smaller penises than men in areas with low levels of PFC

Reports say Padua is one of four areas with high levels of PFC pollution as well as West Virginia in the US, Dordrecht in the Netherlands, and Shandong in China.

It is believed that PFCs bind to testosterone receptors, reducing the male sex hormone in the body. But it’s not just the size of the penis that is affected. PFC also makes sperm less healthy and mobile as well as creating a smaller distance between the scrotum and anus.

The chemical also causes men to grow up with smaller penises and less healthy and low mobile sperms, leading to lower fertility.

Lead researcher Dr Andrea Di Nisio said:

As the first report on water contamination of PFCs goes back to 1977, the magnitude of the problem is alarming.

It affects an entire generation of young individuals, from 1978 onwards. 

Previous studies linked PFCs to other health problems including early menopause and bladder cancer. They are absorbed in the intestines from eating, drinking and breathing them in and can be toxic to foetuses.

Dr Di Nisio said the problem will continue until PFCs are banned.

Non-stick pans are not the only products PFCs are found in. The following products also have diverse levels of the chemical in them.

Fast food packaging

Paper plates

Stain-resistant carpets

Windshield washing fluid

Fire-fighting foam

Waterproof clothing

Some glues

Cosmetics

Medicines

Electronics

Cleaning products

Polishes and waxes

Insecticides and paints
