    Human race faces extinction if male sperm count continues to fall worldwide

    Human race faces extinction if male sperm count continues to fall worldwide

    Because of the source I put this in the Pub, but I have seen similar (perhaps less dire) predictions elsewhere such as RealClearScience.

    Male fertility is falling every year in the Western world — and experts blame chemicals and modern lifestyles.

    A study of 124,000 men visiting fertility clinics in Europe and the USA found sperm quality reducing by almost 2% per year.



    Separate research focusing on 2,600 sperm donors [men with above-normal fertility] showed a similar pattern.


    While most men can still father a child, scientists say the human race faces extinction if the trend continues.
    Pesticides, hormone-disrupting chemicals, stress, smoking and obesity are seen as causes, along with too much alcohol, caffeine and processed meat.

    The chemicals include some used to make plastics flexible and furniture flame-retardant – which can enter the food chain via plants or animals.


    Experts also blame increases in testicular cancer, the number of boys born with one or both testicles missing, and changing testosterone levels.


    Scientists in Valencia, Spain,and New Jersey, USA, carried out the first large-scale study of “swimming” sperm, known as the total motile sperm count.

    The article suggests that the sperm count in the west is declining, but say nothing of other parts of the world. What about the people in the third world who don't have the luxury of all of the processed food and unfortunate lifestyles of the west?

    They likely don't have this problem.

    I can see that there will be a market for third world sperm in the future if people in the west don't make some significant changes.

    We'll see. Maybe China rather than the 3rd world.

    'Madeup News', news similar to most right wing news has this exclusive story and it's not fake per them. Low sperm count is prevalent among Trump snowflakes, it seems the biological reason is adulation of a male BS artist and liar combined with hatred of women, in this case Hillary Clinton, Prof Ford, or Pocahontas causes the male testosterone to weaken and fade. Tests show cheering an empty suit of a man due to personal resentment and other biases is not healthy. Yelling and screaming may make some men happy mentally, but kisses and hugs with the opposite sex works much better. Hopefully this particular aliment of right wing men ends when they realize they are being played. Being played too contributes to low testosterone. Of course some think providing this important information may not be good thing, no need to comment why.

    Another non-contribution. At least you are consistent.

    Maybe we can use a 3D printer. The rest of the world will catch up with us in the crap that's killing our species off. If not, I'm not going to worry about it.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.
