Not everyone agrees there is a sperm apocalypse and that the demise of the human race is imminent.
In reponse to concerns over plummeting sperm counts among men in the West, Vox reporter Julia Belluz checked with several reproductive health experts.
“If it were true [that sperm counts halved], in all the studies we do on normal young men, we’d see sperm concentrations of 30 million instead of 60 million. We just don’t see that,” said Brad Anawalt, a University of Washington School of Medicine hormone specialist in male infertility.
