A new study regarding the steep decline in male sperm counts globally.
“The quality of sperm from men in North America, Europe and Australia has declined dramatically over the past 40 years, with a 52.4 percent drop in sperm concentration, according to a study published Tuesday.
The research — the largest and most comprehensive look at the topic, involving data from 185 studies and 42,000 men around the world between 1973 and 2011 — appears to confirm fears that male reproductive health may be declining”
The analysis found drops only for men in Europe, North America and Australia and not for those in South America, Asia and Africa. Swan explained that this could mean that there's something specific to certain cultures or regions that affects sperm, but that it's also possible that there just isn't enough data yet to draw firm conclusions about the rest of the world. There have been far fewer sperm studies conducted in non-Western countries. (Some of the most recent ones have also noted a decline in aspects of sperm quality. A study published earlier this year about China's Hunan province found that 56 percent of sperm donations met the criteria for health in 2001 vs. only 18 percent in 2015.)
The most important data points in the new study involved sperm concentrations for what are known as “unselected” men who haven't yet proven they are fertile. These are men in the studies who are on the younger side and are not yet fathers or do not have partners who are pregnant. Researchers estimated that these men had an average sperm concentration of 99 million per milliliter in 1973 but that that had dropped to an average 47 million per milliliter in 2011.
That is a disturbing number given that, according to World Health Organization criteria, men with a sperm concentration of less than 40 million are considered to have an impaired chance of conceiving and those with a sperm concentration of less than 15 million per milliliter are unlikely to be able to have children.
These numbers mean “surprisingly higher proportions of men are falling into the infertile and sub fertile categories,” Swan said.
“There are numerous theories about what may be happening to sperm. Many scientists say the most sensitive period may be during the first trimester, when the developing fetus's reproductive system may be impacted by a mother smoking, stress she experienced or food she ate. Exposure to chemicals that can change hormone levels, known as endocrine disrupters, are among the issues being studied.Factory farmed food.
Over the life span, men are also exposed to a number of other things that could potentially influence sperm concentration: pesticides, lead, X-rays, stress and countless other factors.
Can you say population reduction, accomplished?
Coincidentally I went over to Gnostic Media and Jan was interviewing Curtis Duncan @ http://www.drcurtisduncan.com/
It was an interview with Curtis Duncan years back that saw me begin the chemical manipulation of humanity series. I'll have to get back to this.
Additionally, I should state it makes more sense to me the plastics are affecting fertility, but need to look more into the DES history and any involvement in transgender issues.
I personally think much of the "transgender issue" is a hard sell/public relations, manipulative campaign to divide humanity further. It's identity politics taken to the extreme.
Yes, that's my opinion. And it's a pretty well informed opinion- So SJW's need not apply.
