Over the past five decades, sperm levels have fallen dramatically in the western world, and experts are warning that the human race could soon go extinct if this trend continues. As you will see below, researchers have found that sperm counts among males in the western world declined by 59 percent between 1973 and 2011, and if sperm counts continue to fall at this pace it is only a matter of time before most males are infertile. This is being called a “health crisis”, but it is actually much more than that. If nothing is done, future generations will not exist because we simply will not be capable of producing them.

In the U.S., the mainstream media has been strangely silent about this growing problem, but thankfully there are sources outside of the country that are reporting on it. The following comes from a British news source

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.

2 percent may not sound like a lot to you, but when it keeps happening year after year the collective damage is absolutely immense.

In fact, one study discovered that sperm counts had fallen by a total of 59 percent from 1973 to 2011

While most men can still father a child, scientists say the human race faces extinction if the trend continues.

It follows a landmark study last year showing a 59% cut in Western sperm counts from 1973 to 2011.

One of the lead researchers from that particular study specifically used the phrase “the extinction of the human species” to describe the scenario that we are now facing…

“If we will not change the ways that we are living and the environment and the chemicals that we are exposed to, I am very worried about what will happen in the future,” he said.

“Eventually we may have a problem, and with reproduction in general, and it may be the extinction of the human species.”

If these numbers are accurate, we would expect to see the number of men seeking treatment for infertility to skyrocket, and that is precisely what has happened

The rate of men being treated for infertility has increased 700 percent in the last 15 years – and their semen quality is plummeting, new research shows.

Researchers in the US and Spain analyzed semen samples from two major fertility centers between 2002 and 2017.

They found the number of men seeking treatment went up seven-fold, from 8,000 to 60,000 in that time.

So why is this happening?

Why are so many men becoming infertile?

Well, the experts are placing the blame on the usual suspects

Pesticides, hormone-disrupting chemicals, stress, smoking and obesity are seen as causes, along with too much alcohol, caffeine and processed meat.

But I believe that one of the primary factors is our very heavy use of cellphones. Just check out the connection that one study of sperm levels and cellphone use discovered

The new study shows that having a mobile phone close to the testicles – or within a foot or two of the body – can lower sperm levels so much that conceiving could be difficult.

The findings have led to a leading British fertility expert to advise men to stop being addicted to mobile phones.

Professor Martha Dirnfeld, of the Technion University in Haifa, said: “We analysed the amount of active swimming sperm and the quality and found that it had been reduced.

“We think this is being caused by a heating of the sperm from the phone and by electromagnetic activity.”

Sadly, nothing is going to stop most men from carrying around their cellphones in their pockets, and so sperm levels are likely to continue to decrease.

And so birth rates in the western world are almost certainly going to continue to go down.

In fact, the CDC says that the birth rate in the United States has already hit an all-time record low

The research comes after the US National Center for Health Statics – the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) data arm – announced in July of 2017 that fertility in the US had reached an all-time low.

Birth rates among American women have been falling for decades, but took a sharp downward turn beginning around 2010.

By 2016, the fertility rate in the US was only 62 live births per every 1,000 women.

It appears that this crisis is accelerating, but not that many people are talking about it.

However, if sperm levels continue to drop, it is just a matter of time before most men are infertile.

And once most men become infertile, the human population will begin to drop precipitously and complete human extinction would become a very real possibility.
