According to a new study, sperm counts in men from western countries have dropped by over 59% in the last 40 years. Scientists are in disbelief.
The Sperm Counts of Western Men Have Declined Dramatically, Alarming Experts
“In 1992, scientists from Denmark published a study claiming that there had been a decline in the quality of men’s semen over the preceding 50 years. Though worries have persisted since then, it has been hard to back up this claim. Now a comprehensive new study has emerged that appears to support the research from decades ago.”
Skin Cells Turned Into Sperm
“Scientists in Spain have created human sperm from skin cells, a medical feat which could eventually lead to a treatment for infertility. The researchers said they were working to find a solution for the roughly 15 percent of couples worldwide who are unable to have children and whose only option is to use donated sperm or eggs.”
