Due to various chemicals, the number of sperm in the male body or the sperm rate is decreasing at an alarming rate worldwide. The combined results of at least 25 studies conducted over the past 50 years suggest that pesticides are reducing men’s sperm count.
Such information has emerged from a report recently published in the American media CNN about the research of Melissa Perry, dean of the College of Public Health at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
Lauren Ellis, head of the research team and a researcher in the Department of Public Health at Northwestern University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, said that pesticides are used almost everywhere in our environment and therefore it is important to understand how they affect sperm count and reproductive health. Pesticides are a public health concern.
Ellis and his colleagues studied at least 1,774 men from Asia, North America, South America and Europe. They tried to find out the effect of different organic fertilizers of different phosphates and different compounds of methyl carbamate on their reproductive health. These widely used pesticides inhibit the production of various enzymes and cause the destruction of various neurotransmitters or nerve messengers (various hormones) such as acetylcholine. This acetylcholine plays an important role in the structure and operation of human muscles and brain.
Melissa Perry also said that it doesn’t matter whether the research is big or small. The reality is that pesticide-related declines in male sperm count are on the rise. However, the study did not show whether the pesticides caused any changes in sperm quality.
Earlier in 2017, several doctors warned that the rate at which the number of sperm in men’s bodies is decreasing around the world could lead to the extinction of the human race. The head of this research team of data collection. Hagai Levin says he is ‘very concerned’ about what will happen in the future. That comparative study was done from 1973 to 2011. Based on the data of 185 research done during this period, Dr. Levine’s team.
