Existential crisis – Penises are shrinking

19 April 2021

In an article released on Sky News, Dr Shanna Swan states that humanity is facing an “existential crisis” in fertility rates as a result of phthalates, a chemical used when manufacturing plastics that impacts the hormone-producing endocrine system.
Penises are shrinking and genitals becoming malformed because of pollution, she warned in a new book detailing the challenges facing human  reproduction.
As a result of this pollution, a growing number of babies are being born with small penises, Dr Swan writes. One study published in 2017 found that sperm levels among men in Western countries had dropped by more than 50% over the past four decades after examining 185 studies involving close to 45,000 healthy men. Dr Swan believes that the rapidly decreasing fertility rate means that most men will be unable to produce viable sperm by 2045.
