Fertility expert Professor Peter Koopman at the University of Queensland says, “Since the 1970s, we have seen a huge increase in prevalence of male infertility and testicular cancer; this increase is directly attributable to environmental factors such as pollutants, cigarette smoke and exposure to chemicals.”[i] In 2017, research found that, between 1973 and 2011, there was an average decline in mean sperm concentration of 1.6% per year, and an overall decline of 59.3%. A follow-up of the 2017 research revealed that sperm count is declining at an accelerated pace—2.64% after 2000 and an overall fall of 62.3%, representing an overall decline of approximately 4.70 million sperm per year.[ii]
But it’s not all doom and gloom. There are many ways to prevent this decline in male fertility – you just have to know how. That’s where my book comes in – it provides explanations and answers. After all, my goal is to help you become the parent you so much want to be and to have a healthy baby.
