western sperm nosedive

"Sperm counts among men have more than halved in the last 40 years, research suggests, although the drivers behind the decline remain unclear.
"The latest findings reveal that between 1973 and 2011, the concentration of sperm in the ejaculate of men in western countries has fallen by an average of 1.4% a year, leading to an overall drop of just over 52%." -- The Guardian


  1. Commie's messin' with our water. Damned dirty hippies.

  2. Purely speculating here:

    I'd look to our food supply first. It seems wonderful to have food grown far from home and shipped in. But that means just about everything is processed. Too often chemicals are used to increase shelf life, and now we have Genetically Modified Food, and, I read recently, there's the next stage in GMO's being fine tuned in the marketing departments. In the preparation for preservation, there's always a downside.

    There is another possibility that is possibly related to those modifications and additives. Given the problems related to population growth, I am not beyond believing that this is intentional and of course since the people have been unaware of such efforts, it is a conspiracy.

  3. Then again, it could just be something purely mechanical like wearing briefs or tight pants. It might be wearing those sweat making cotton-polyblend underwear. It might turn out that the Greeks, Romans and old Scots had the right idea: "Let 'em swing and keep 'em cool."

  4. Andy -- I can't resist waxing sexist and suggesting it is all a great distaff conspiracy to turn men into pussies.

    OK ... throw the rotten eggs.
