Big Girl’s Blouse, Ctd

Yesterday I blogged about a soft frog who has taken his missus surname…Now I think I have found the problem of French soft-cockery:

Researchers found that between 1989 and 2005, the number of sperm in one milliliter of the average 35-year-old Frenchman’s semen fell from about 74 million to about 50 million – a decrease of roughly 32 percent.

“That’s certainly within the normal range, but if you think about it, if there continues to be a decrease, we would expect that we’ll get into that infertile range,” said Grace Centola, president of the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology in Birmingham, Alabama.

And the French aren’t the only ones who should be concerned, the researchers said.

OMG, who else is at risk?

“A decline in male reproduction endpoints has been suspected for several decades and is still debated all around the world. Geographical differences have been observed between countries, and between areas inside countries,” said Jo?lle Le Moal from the Institut de Veille Sanitaire in?France, who led the study.

Writing in the journal Human Reproduction, Le Moal’s team said global analyses have found decreases in sperm counts, as did recent studies in?Israel, India, New Zealand and?Tunisia.

Now we know why this country is becoming all sooky as well.
