Commonly used Pesticides turns Male frogs female

Also called Hydroxine

– used to treat itching caused by allergies. It is an anti histamine and works by blocking a certain natural substance – histamine. Hydroxyzine may also be used short-term to treat anxiety or to help you feel sleepy/relaxed before and after surgery

Atrazine was “Officially” banned but is THE most commonly used weed killer today, a quick search I found several UK suppliers:

Atrazine still available

The present study demonstrates the reproductive consequences of atrazine exposure in adult amphibians.

Atrazine-exposed males were demasculinized

“Most Commonly used” this study from 2010 shows:

The herbicide atrazine is one of the most commonly applied pesticides in the world. As a result, atrazine is the most commonly detected pesticide contaminant of ground, surface, and drinking water. Atrazine is also a potent endocrine disruptor that is active at low, ecologically relevant concentrations. Previous studies showed that atrazine adversely affects amphibian larval development. The present study demonstrates the reproductive consequences of atrazine exposure in adult amphibians. Atrazine-exposed males were both demasculinized (chemically castrated) and completely feminized as adults. Ten percent of the exposed genetic males developed into functional females that copulated with unexposed males and produced viable eggs. Atrazine-exposed males suffered from depressed testosterone, decreased breeding gland size, demasculinized/feminized laryngeal development, suppressed mating behavior, reduced spermatogenesis, and decreased fertility. These data are consistent with effects of atrazine observed in other vertebrate classes. The present findings exemplify the role that atrazine and other endocrine-disrupting pesticides likely play in global amphibian declines.

Wikipedia is confused and contradictory.

It is clear the studies are showing demasculation happens quickly causing “Chemical Castration”
