Deformities of human males is rising at an alarming rate: genital deformities, low sperm count, sperm abnormalities and testicular cancer are but a few of the now common problems doctors and researchers see everyday.
At the same time, boys are now far more at risk of suffering from ADHD, autism, Tourette’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, and dyslexia.
Found in everything from shampoo, sunglasses, meat and dairy products, carpet, cosmetics and baby bottles, they are called “hormone mimicking” or “endocrine disrupting” chemicals and they may be starting to damage the most basic building blocks of human development.
Reproductive toxicity is a hazard associated with some chemical substances, that they will interfere in some way with normal reproduction.
It includes adverse effects on sexual function and fertility in adult males and females, as well as developmental toxicity in the offspring.
U.S. fertility rates fell to low levels during the Great Depression (1930s), around the time of the 1970s “oil shock,” and since the onset of the recent recession in 2007 . The U.S. total fertility rate (TFR) stood at 2.0 births per woman in 2009, but preliminary data from the National Center for Health Statistics show that the TFR dropped to 1.9 in 2010—well below the replacement level of 2.1.1 A similar decline—or leveling off—of fertility rates has been reported in Ireland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and several other European countries.
The birth of a test tube baby used to be a newsworthy event; now, some 25 years after America’s first, it is rarely ever mentioned in the press. With hundreds of thousands of test tube babies living in the world, in vitro fertilization (IVF) has become much more common.
Having sex to conceive a child will become unnecessary within a decade, as in-vitro fertilization becomes more popular among 30-somethings, scientists predict.
Calling human natural reproduction “a fairly inefficient process,” Australian veterinarian John Yovich told London’s Daily Mail that sex will soon become just a recreational activity.
“Within the next five to 10 years, couples approaching 40 will assess the IVF industry first when they want to have a baby,” said Yovich, a veterinary doctor from Murdoch University in Perth, Australia.
He said in-virto fertilization will advance to the point of having “a near 100% success rate.”
Currently, about 15% to 20% of women ages 38 to 40 are able to conceive using IVF, according to the American Pregnancy Association. That figure drops to about 6% to 10% after age 40.
With Reproductive Toxicity becoming more present, IVF may indeed become the solution of choice for many couples.

And here is a remarkable documentary produced by the CBC on reproductive toxicity.
The Disappearing Male documentary provides a frightening answer as to why males are experiencing these problems.
