    I fall into the category. My (ex) wife and I could not conceive. Low count and motility. It doesn't matter any more though. It's not like I'm trying to get anyone pregnant, and won't for the rest of my life. For the record, the volume has not received any complaints so far.

    Those reasons are all probably a part of a secret government plan to reduce population growth. icon_lol.gif

    heybreaux saidYeah I have known about this for some time. A friend of mine is a biophysicist at NYU sent me a free movie called The Disappearing Male.

    http://sciencestage.com/v/945/the-disappearing-male.html

    He says polycarbonates and phthalates are feminizing the population.

    Doctors recommend using silicone for toys. Reminds me of the Baby got Back lyrics....(Silicone parts are made for toys!)

    I store my food in glass containers, and a slew of other inconveniences to deal with it. Essentially any plastics that are soft, have it! (like shower curtains are releasing). I try to do what I can...


    Yeah i was taught this in med school as well.. that the use of plastics is basically killing reproductive capacity.. not just in humans, but likely in the entire biosphere... which is absolutely disastrous beyond belief.. because without reproduction, there is no production of food either... basically we have to drastically alter the entire chemical industry.. or let the entire planet die out hehe... it was only a matter of time anyway..

    Thanks for the video!

    Currently the world is dealing with an alarming rise in obesity and an epidemic of diabetes in children.. seemingly a mysterious new epidemic of the past decade..

    The possible culprit.. plastic food containers....

    Most of the damage occurs in utero anyway. Once the testes are developed there's not much you can do. Male infertility rates correlate with testicular cancer rates and testicular cancer precursors are formed in the womb. Excerpt from Wikipedia: "Although testicular cancer is most common among men aged 15–40 years, it has three peaks: infancy through the age of four as teratomas and yolk sac tumors, ages 25–40 years as post-pubertal seminomas and nonseminomas, and from age 60 as spermatocytic seminomas.[23]"
    I've never heard of anyone looking at individual males and seeing if low sperm count can be used to predict testicular cancer risk. Might make a good article.

    EDIT: That conclusion is based on a lot of correlation that haven't been mechanistically proven in man yet. But it's pretty sound.

    ehm, this thinking is in reverse... depressed people are fertile.. treat them to become happy, and they become unfertile.. this means there would be natural selection for depression.. so that theory seems a bit odd

    Its the leaching of chemicals into food products from plastic containers... The feminization of all the generations that grew up on food & drinks stored in plastics. Both sexes have more estrogen. Girls are menstruating MUCH sooner than earlier generations. Boys have higher waists.

    Isn't the subject of male infertility, on a gay website, rather academic?

    All those dead birds. Butterflys becoming exctinct by the thousands of species. Go find a book by Rachel Carson in the 1960`s. She was a scientist who predicted our current predicament and who started the save-the-earth movement. We`re in way more trouble than you can imagine.

    It's funny being over weight, having poor diet and a sedentary, exercise free lifestyle, and choosing to delay childbearing until later in life are proven 100% to be a HUGE factor in infertility, ED in males etc


    Yet despirate this and to avoid proactivly doing some work themselves to fix their problems, people would rather grasp at string blaming their register reciepts, or tupperware for such problems icon_rolleyes.gif


    Maybe the rise in infertility is linked to the rise in heart disease and diabeties that are surging through the population


    Girls are menstuarting earlier because childhood obesity is soaring, for example olympic gymnists can delay mensturation into their late teens or twenties by keeping their bf% really low. Adipose is an endocrine tissue...the more of it you have the more of it's effects and the age of puberty will drop as obesity rates rise in preteen girls
