I'm sure it has nothing to do with ~75% of people being overweight.

I woudlnt be suprised it being a combination of many factors.

Yup. If you see food that includes ingredients 12 syllables long that you can't pronounce and sound like an ingredient for making a bomb instead of food, don't eat it. You've now avoided 90% of health problems. Bash the liberals all you want but they were at least smart enough to figure out that poison and chemicals aren't good for you.

Once Internet porn came out, male testosterone took a hit as well.

There's definitely a strong correlation between consumption of artificial sweeteners and how fucking fat someone is.

75% ???

Obesity rates might have something to do with it, but that doesn't mean there isn't bigger factors at play like exposure to these chemicals in commerce.

It's because most people jack off to porn everyday.

This is likely it. Why make a ton of sperm to work once in a while when you can make 60% less and use it every day. Can the body tell the difference between jerking it to porn and fucking a girl? If not then it definitely makes sense from a biological standpoint. You are fucking every night so your body produces less sperm since the odds of passing on your genes are still higher then fucking once a week with a full load.

I'm sure it can. If I wack it I'll get a bit but when I fuck my girlfriend I blow loads. Then again when I have a girlfriend I don't wack it at all.

Don't eat GMOs. Minimize the contact food has with plastic.

“The fact that the decline is seen in Western countries strongly suggests that chemicals in commerce are playing a causal role in this trend,”

Based on what? Is everything that happens in Western countries is just randomly blamed on some vague "commerce chemicals" now?

to confirm that the decline in sperm counts is likely to be real

Uh huh.

despite the decline found in the study, average sperm counts still remain in the normal range.

Well ok then. Did anyone else notice that everything after the word "Confirmation" debunked the headline?

In September 2006, New Scientist was criticised by science fiction writer Greg Egan, who wrote that "a sensationalist bent and a lack of basic knowledge by its writers" was making the magazine's coverage sufficiently unreliable "to constitute a real threat to the public understanding of science". In particular, Egan found himself "gobsmacked by the level of scientific illiteracy"

Heh.

With no real alternative, and the increase of chemicals shown to lower sperm counts, there is little reason to believe there isnt some kind of correlation. Especially when you consider that 3rd world nations are not showing this.

Third world countries have even more chemicals, with virtually no government oversight. Wanna spray your crops with some third world insecticide? Maybe some Chinese chemical fertilizer? And that's before you get to talking about preprocessed foods. Food additives, colors, preservatives, etc. .Anything goes in the third world.

Correlation does not indicate causation. "Chemicals" is also extremely vague. This whole article stinks of irresponsible sensationalism designed to appeal to the scientifically illiterate. They have to do better than "this thing might be happening a little bit and we pulled a guess out of a hat as to why."

He doesn't drink much soda and eats a TON of red meat and fish. Also groing up his mom only ever made homemade from scratch meals. Like hard core scratch (we recently moved in with his father after his mom passed away and my gawd have I gotten schooled on homecooking - like homemade bread and pasta levels).

No, it's better to have 3 children that you raise properly, than have 10 children and let them run around in the wild like niggers.

High levels of parental investment are indicative of K-selection. You can't do that with 10 kids.

Well that's part and parcel of being a dissinfo agent. His goal is to saturate real facts like these and the "gay frogs" e.t.c. with other ridiculous conspiracies in order for them all to be considered batshit crazy by majority of the population.

It's the xenoestrogens. Parabens, soy phytoestrogens ... xenoestrogens are found in almost every product put on the shelves nowadays: shampoos, creams, processed foods (meatballs, chicken nuggets, etc.). Also, discarded birth control pills and unmetabolized portions of the pills urinated out into the water supply that is then recycled.

Men in western nations are pummelled every day from many angles with estrogen mimicking hormones.
