French scientists did a huge study of mens' sperm counts and found some shocking news!
The average man's sperm count fell during 1989 to 2005 by over 32%!!
The study looked at 27,000 men so it was a serious sample size.
It did only look at men in France but it does back up the findings of other studies around the world.
It looks like men's sperm counts are dropping worldwide!
The researchers said:
"To our knowledge, it is the first study concluding a severe and general decrease in sperm concentration and morphology at the scale of a whole country over a substantial period. This constitutes a serious public health warning. The link with the environment particularly needs to be determined."
It could be environmental toxins or lifestyle choices that are lowering sperm counts. It could also be from wearing too tight undies. LOLz!
This could be a real issue if it's happening everywhere because low sperm count affects a man's fertility.
Maybe it's time men switch to boxers! Or walk around with their junk out all the time.
C'mon guys, air out your goods and up your fertility! For the good of the human race!
