Will the earth be female? Panic in the gene Pool Part.I

Scientific research shows that male sperm production in Industrial nations has diminished considerably over the past 50 years. Do men no longer have what it takes? There is a heated discussion about the role of stress and environmental toxins in the phenomenon. However, if we don’t find out any of the cause of declining male fertility the future of the human species could be severely affected.

In 1992, The Danish scientist Niels E Skakkebaek of Copenhagen university clinic published the results of some startling research. Skakkeback and his colleagues had conducted the research over the preceding 50 years, and had analyzed and evaluated 61 studies from 20 countries. They found overall sperm count had decreased by nearly half- from 113 to 66 million per milli litre of seminal fluid- and the average ejaculation volume of man has fallen from 3.4 to 2.7 ml. A study by French scientists, based on sperm donations given by men in France between 1972 and 1993, yielded a similar result. Here too, the concentration of sperm has decreased continuously by about 2%.

If we take this result seriously then the implications for the coming years are quite disturbing. While woman produce just one ovum per month, men are continuously producing sperm cells. Their large number ensures a high probability of fertilization for most sperm cells die before they reach the female ovum after intercourse.



  1. Interesting! I have no idea in the field but I think life they live in a continuous speed and stress destroys the body .....
    Congratulations for posting the beautiful and hi all!
