The Disappearing Male
After watching this documentary you will see that one of the only places left in our community where you might be able to get away from being inundated by endocrine disruptors such as dioxins is high atop the San Francisco Peaks.
The treated sewage effluent Arizona Snowbowl would like to use to make fake snow has been predicted to create a brownfield of Dioxins within a decade by Biologist Dr. Paul Torrence.
If this happens skiing the Arizona Snowbowl could end up causing boys and young men to suffer from genital deformities, low sperm count, sperm abnormalities and testicular cancer.
Recent studies by NAU scientist Dr. Katherine Propper have found that the same treated sewer water Snowbowl wants to use is linked to the feminization of fish in local waterways.
Additionally, it has been found that our drinking water in the Fox Glen wells has these same chemicals in it. Our city has recently admitted that this water may be up to 37% treated sewage effluent. What is this doing to the people of our community? Why would we spray 180 million gallons of this tainted water on the only place left that might be free of these chemicals?
Saving the Peaks is really just the tip of the iceberg of a vastly greater problem.
