The project’s objectives are to review the scientific literature (e.g. PubMed, Medline, Google Scholar) in a systematic manner on:
1. Whether the reported increases in these 14 diseases and health parameters in our Western society are real or caused by artefacts, for example as a result of changes in diagnostic criteria, improved reporting/registration and/or improved patient awareness.
2. Whether the increased incidences of these 14 diseases and health parameters are attributable to changes in human reproduction.
The 14 diseases and health parameters are:
1. Semen quality
2. Hypospadias
3. Cryptorchidism
4. Preterm birth
5. Low birth weight
6. Neurobehavioral disorders like autism and ADHD

10. Prostate cancer
11. Early breast development
12. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
