The more science understand, the worse science looks.

A new peer-reviewed Danish study finds that a mother’s exposure to toxic PFAS “forever chemicals” during early pregnancy can lead to lower sperm count and quality later in her child’s life.

PFAS – per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances – are known to disrupt hormones and fetal development, and future “reproductive capacity” is largely defined as testicles develop in utero during the first trimester of a pregnancy, said study co-author Sandra Søgaard Tøttenborg of the Copenhagen University hospital.

Infertility rates are on the rise worldwide, often for unclear reasons, Søgaard Tøttenborg said.

“The results of our studies are an important piece in that puzzle,” she added. “Equally important: the more we know, the more we can prevent.”

Something *ahem* has been boosting infertility rates lately, but this is a long-standing problem. It’s almost like they knew all the chemicals were anti-human, and knowing that they set out to prevent more humans. One reason the post-modern age is so dystopian in nature may be that the modern age was so terribly destructive in practice. Once the air and water clear, one hopes any survivors of the great human experiment in self-destructive stupidity will remember a few of the lessons.
