French men not producing as much sperm

When it comes to sperm counts, French men aren't what they used to be, according to a new study.

Researchers found that between 1989 and 2005, the number of sperm in one milliliter of the average 35-year-old Frenchman's semen fell from about 74 million to about 50 million - a decrease of roughly 32 percent.

"That's certainly within the normal range, but if you think about it, if there continues to be a decrease, we would expect that we'll get into that infertile range," said Grace Centola, president of the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology in Birmingham, Alabama.

And the French aren't the only ones who should be concerned, the researchers said.

"A decline in male reproduction endpoints has been suspected for several decades and is still debated all around the world. Geographical differences have been observed between countries, and between areas inside countries," said Joëlle Le Moal from the Institut de Veille Sanitaire in France, who led the study.

France has been going downhill since the Revolution. Never recovered fully from WWI. The liberals ruin everything they touch.

They’re not producing much of anything else, either.

Huge numbers of women on the pill = large amounts of female hormone in their urine which ends up in the water supply (where evidently current technologies do a poor job of removing it) = some nasty effects on the male body when we inevitably are forced to ingest water.

Thanks to Sandra Fluke and the Freebie Pill it will be happening here shortly.

Call me nuts, but for a long time
now I’ve blamed the wussification of
Frenchmen on the copious amounts of lavender
found in France.

Lavender reduces testosterone; tea tree oil
does the same.

Aromatherapy can be dangerous to your little swimmers.

Since in these uber-politically correct times, the Friendly Sons of Muhammed residents dans la belle France are also called, "Frenchmen," it could well be that these fouteurs de chèvre, mouton, and the odd chameau are causing this lamentable statistic.

Do not forget, there would be many more Muslim immigrants in France, but strong family ties prevent many from leaving their brothers behind.

Buckets of icy cold water being scarce in the dusty regions inhabited by Worthy Oriental Gentlemen, it IS a problem. Separating the men from the boys, that is.

No decent dog would live among them.
