Batman:

 

There's quantity, but there's also quality.

 

Soon everybody will buy their test tube baby of choice from Amazon.

 

 

Will the ones with fewer features be cheaper than flagship varieties?

Nevermind the ones with fewer features, don't get caught buying a fake one, which turns out to be a bit on the lower quality side ...

The stupid thing is that the experts claim it it due to things such as pesticides, plastics etc. But then the government claims they are all safe, and within the guidelines where they shouldn't have any affect on Health. You can't have it both ways.

I'd say both parties are as good as guessing. Could be things other than pesticide and plastic surely.

The following insult will have to change with the times:

 

"One hundred million sperm and you were the fastest?"

 

To:

 

"Ten million sperm and you were the fastest?"

 

Then:

 

"One million sperm and you were the fastest?"

 

And then:

 

"One hundred thousand sperm and you were the fastest?"

 

Then:

 

"Ten thousand sperm and you were the fastest?"

I watched an BBC doco done on a study by Oxford uni they stated that because of the level of man made estrogens in plastics (linings of tins especially those containing vinegars, plastics used to wrap cheese and things like glad wrap) that the avg male penile size compared to 50yrs ago has gone down by 2~3 inches they also found the fish and frogs living near plastics production plants had become nearly all female because of run off and outfall from those plants containing high levels of estrogens

You would hope the NZ government are actually testing stuff, and it is based on peer reviewed professional research. There are checmicals still used in NZ that are banned overseas like in USA the EU. That is a worry.

We've been crapping in our own nest for a very long time. This is just another way that it'll come back to bite us.

I think the obesity trend was one of the big ones mentioned.

But if that was the case, then only obese people would be affected. eg if you are fat, then you risk having a lower sperm count. But I don't believe there are figures that back that up.
