For John, BLUF: It's always something. Nothing to see here; just move along.
"It's not great news."
This is from Science Alert and Writer Andrew Stapleton, ono Saturday, 29 July 2017.
Here is the lede plus one:
Scientists have conducted the first large scale systematic review of sperm count and quality and were 'shocked' at what they found.And here is the prognosis:
The study found that for males from western countries, North America, Europe and Australia, sperm concentration had declined by 50 percent in less than 40 years and should be a wakeup call to solve what's causing the trend.
"We are not in crisis yet but this study serves as a warning that we should investigate the role our diet and environment pay on sperm production.Perhaps our civilization could die quicker than the sea levels can rise.
So, men. Think twice before you order fast food and forego that brisk beach walk – your sperm will thank you. Failing that, maybe scientists can just make you some.
