Of course industrial pollution is dangerous, however, that applies to everyone regardless of their diet.
Perhaps those of us who are Paleo are more likely to be aware of the dangers of xenoestrogens, but there's nothing inherently linking the two. It's possible to be on any diet and be aware of industrial pollution, or to be unaware.
As you probably figured out, the idea of Paleo is the elimination of toxic foodstuff by avoiding fake foods. Otters don't have the luxury of buying organic food, or avoiding contaminated water by using reverse osmosis filters, for example.
One tidbit to point out, unlike otters, humans don't have penis bones, which the article you point to mentions are what's shrinking.
So, uh, why are you freaking out? Pollution isn't anything new.
