In addition, Swan believes products should be labeled with their chemical contents.

Another expert, Dr. Christine Mullin, a reproductive endocrinologist/infertility specialist at the Center for Human Reproduction at North Shore-LIJ Health System in Manhasset, N.Y., commented that these findings are "not surprising."

"We have added so many pollutants to the environment that it's just a matter of time until it started to affect women's ability to conceive," she said.

Mullin noted that exposure to these chemicals affects men's sperm and may also affect women's eggs.

"Live as healthy a life as possible," she said. "Watch what you eat."
