Russian men: an endangered species?
In a horrifying mutation, sperm with two heads, three tails or an inability to swim are becoming almost the norm amongst modern men.
“What used to be perceived as infertility is now very different. Twenty years ago, 200 million viable sperm per milliliter was considered normal. Today, 15 million is average,” Margarita Anshina, director of the Center for Reproduction and Genetics, told RT.
But proper sperm studies are not easy, and have never been conducted in Russia – until now. Professor Galimov was among the first, only to find more than half of his fellow countrymen’s sperm did not meet World Health Organization standards.
"Our study revealed not only the quantity but the quality also changes among Russian men as their sperm literally swim in a toxic soup," Shamil Galimov from the Bashkir State Medical University explained.
A whole range of poisonous substances including lead, cadmium and even mercury was found in their semen. And that’s not all.
“It’s been noted recently that any kind of stress – such as war, terrorist attacks, a polluted environment – leads to fewer boys being born and more girls – proving that the male chromosome is more vulnerable to outside influences,” Galimov pointed out.
And fewer men now means even fewer down the generations. Just look at the sea of ribbons at the start of a new school year and it’s clear: girls in Russia outnumber the boys.
