Is this the end of mankind? I FEEL THIS BLOG IS IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO REPEAT BECAUSE IT SOUNDS TOO FRIGHTENING TO BE TRUE.I wrote a blog several weeks ago which quoted a new book called Countdown, by Shanna Swan, an environmental and reproductive epidemiologist at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York.
I have the feeling that the Blog might not have had the impact on my readers that it deserves. So, I have edited and re-written it. The topic is frightening, personal, and reveals a hidden truth that could be catastrophic to mankind’s future in just a few short years.
Swan’s book reports that worldwide sperm counts have dropped almost 60% since 1973, and could reach zero by 2045.
Zero. Think about it. That would mean no babies. No reproduction. No more humans. And that date is only 25 years away.
Why isn’t the UN calling an emergency meeting on this right now?
This dramatic fall in human reproductive capability is attributed to chemicals that are found in everything from plastic containers and food wrapping, to waterproof clothes and fragrances They are found in cleaning products, soaps, shampoos, electronics and carpeting. Some of them, called PFAS, are known as “forever chemicals”, because they don’t breakdown in the environment, or in the human body. They just accumulate, and accumulate – doing more and more damage, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day. Swan finds that, on average, a man today has half of the sperm his grandfather did.
If that wasn’t bad enough, Swan’s book is staggering in its other findings. “In some parts of the world, the average twenty-something woman today is less fertile than her grandmother was at 35,” Swan writes.
“The current state of reproductive capabilities can’t continue much longer without threatening human survival,” writes Swan. She adds: “It’s a global existential crisis. That’s not hyperbole, it’s just science.”
Swan’s research echoes previous research, which has found that PFAS chemicals harm sperm production, disrupts the male hormone, and is correlated with a “reduction of semen quality, testicular volume and penile length”.
If that statement doesn’t get someone’s attention, nothing will.
These chemicals are killing us, literally, by harming and attacking the very source of life, our reproductive capabilities. Even allowing for some sensationalism in Swan’s research, there simply is no time to lose if the human race is to survive another hundred years.
Again, is this the end of mankind?
