Sperm, Dying Like Beached Whales on the Polluted Beaches of Modernity By Mrs Vera West

     I have written about the issue of the decline of sperm, and of manhood before at this noble site, but now bring an update.

     Researchers from the Hadassah-Hebrew University, H. Levine (et al.), “Temporal Trends in Sperm Count: A Systematic Review and Meta-Regression Analysis,” Human Reproduction Update, (2017); doi: 10.1093/humupd/dmx022,  conducted a meta-analysis, a type of statistical synthesis of published studies (more complex: simple linear models, meta-regression models, and sensitivity analyses), and found a 59.3 percent decline in total sperm count among men from North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. There was not found to be a statistically significant decline in sperm count in South America or Africa, but much fewer studies have been conducted there which makes the sample of studies therefore unrepresented in this respect.

     If the causes of the death of sperm are related to conditions of modernity, such as chemical pollution, such as from agricultural chemicals, then no human population on Earth is safe. There is evidence that this is the case, and that “feminisation” phenomena occurring in animal populations, is but one aspect of this:

     Along with this is the related problem of the decline of testosterone in the West, which Roy Barzilai author of The Testosterone Hypothesis:
believes is leaving the West wide open to ethno-racial cultural displacement:

     T. S. Eliot wrote in the final stanza of “the Hollow Men” (1925):
This is the way the world ends

This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

     However, perhaps he was an optimist, because with no babies, there may not even be a whimper, only the sound of silence:
