(NaturalNews) Nearly 20 years ago, Danish scientists first broke
the news to the world that men from Western countries seem
to be slowly becoming infertile. Recent research seems to back
this up as well, with average sperm counts having dropped to
half of what they were 50 years ago.
According to reports, nearly 20 percent of men between the
ages of 18 and 25 have sperm counts that are abnormally low.
To put this in perspective, consider the fact that in the 1940s,
men had an average of about 100 million sperm cells per
millimeter of semen (m/ml). Today, the average is around
60m/ml. Those among the 20 percent with abnormal levels
have less than 20m/ml.
So what is the cause behind decreasing sperm counts?
Realistically, there is probably more than just one cause.
Environmental toxins, synthetic food and water additives, and
estrogenic substances in food are all likely culprits.
"It's most likely a reflection of the fact that many
environmental and lifestyle changes over the past 50 years are
inherently detrimental to sperm production," explained
Professor Richard Sharpe, a fertility research expert at the
Medical Research Council, in a U.K. report.
semen quality in men has more to do with what their mothers
were exposed to during pregnancy, than what the men
themselves are exposed to throughout their lifetimes.
A case in point is the disastrous chemical accident that
occurred in 1976 in Seveso, Italy. The incident caused the
highest known human exposure to toxic chemical dioxins. It
was later revealed that pregnant women who were exposed to
the chemical during that time bore male children who ended up
having poor sperm counts.
Other studies also seem to lend credence to the idea that
lifelong sperm counts are determined during the early stages of
male fetal development. Interference with the Sertoli cells,
which are responsible for proper sperm development during
fetal development, can lead to lifelong sperm production
problems in males.
"Maternal-lifestyle factors in pregnancy can have quite
substantial effects on sperm counts in sons in adulthood, and
the most logical mechanism by which this could occur is via
reducing the number of Sertoli cells," explained Professor
In other words, prenatal exposure to toxic chemicals is a
serious threat to male health, which ultimately threatens the
existence of mankind.
