The Disappearing Male

The Disappearing Male is about one of the most important, and least publicized, issues facing the human species: the toxic threat to the male reproductive system.

The last few decades have seen steady and dramatic increases in the incidence of boys and young men suffering from genital deformities, low sperm count, sperm abnormalities and testicular cancer.

At the same time, boys are now far more at risk of suffering from ADHD, autism, Tourette’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, and dyslexia.

The Disappearing Male takes a close and disturbing look at what many doctors and researchers now suspect are responsible for many of these problems: a class of common chemicals that are ubiquitous in our world.

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.

    Maybe this is why we haven’t heard from any non-terrestrial intelligences. Maybe a petroleum based civilization is the quickest and easiest way to advance but petroleum based civilizations might be inherently self-destructive.

    Every civilization might end up following the same path only to discover that they’re committing suicide and making the discovery too late to do anything about it.

    Just a bunch of maybes of course.

    I don’t mean to be a sour puss, but I don’t agree with the depressing ending.  I don’t believe in man made global warming, I believe in climate change maybe from the sun.  And as far as never being able to clean up our environment, ever, i don’t agree.  Mushrooms are the things in nature that will help us clean up our evironment.  They take inorganic compounds into their fruiting body and crack them basically and make them organic again.  A good book is Paul Stamets “Mycellium Running: How Mushrooms Can Save Our Planet.”  And nothing is mentioned as far as how to boost sperm count or detox this shit.  I know how, it’s called medicinal herbs and I take them every day and I feel like a cowboy.  I guess I’ll be the one to repopulate the earth when all you guys are infertile.  Duty calls!!!!

    THIS EARTH WILL EVENTUALLY DESTROY ITSELF BECAUSE OF HUMANKIND,THERE ARE OTHER PLANETS OUT THERE THOUGH MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD MAYBE THAT WORD AGAIN,was populated until some bright sparks mess about with genetics and destruction of land,forests and killing of animals and species and chemicals ,warfare I could go on,but I do believe that humans are the cause for global warming they always have to have the latest technology and so destroy certain areas of the planet then it suffocates species around it,its squeezing the life out of this planet,those people with placards in the 60s use to make me laugh but now it seems it might come true.Not now but give it a couple of centuries so our descendants might have to suffer what some are doing now to this planet,it can be turned around but who will do it and I doubt if anyone will who can.So be it on our own head and some will not care if the planet doesnt survive for future generations of humans and animals but then they would care if it was happening now with eruptions and land going into the sea just like when the dinosaurs were destroyed because of the earth altering..so if anyone cares about if there future descendants will survive something should be done,I know we will not be here but our planet would be and so would hopefully a more aware better people who care about what happens to all animals humans and the earth..
