The Disappearing MaleThe Disappearing Male is about one of the most important, and least publicized, issues facing the human species: the toxic threat to the male reproductive system.

The last few decades have seen steady and dramatic increases in the incidence of boys and young men suffering from genital deformities, low sperm count, sperm abnormalities and testicular cancer.

At the same time, boys are now far more at risk of suffering from ADHD, autism, Tourette's syndrome, cerebral palsy, and dyslexia.

The Disappearing Male takes a close and disturbing look at what many doctors and researchers now suspect are responsible for many of these problems: a class of common chemicals that are ubiquitous in our world.

Found in everything from shampoo, sunglasses, meat and dairy products, carpet, cosmetics and baby bottles, they are called "hormone mimicking" or "endocrine disrupting" chemicals and they may be starting to damage the most basic building blocks of human development.

I have been screaming this since 2007 -- I lost my home to an investor that wanted me to put chemicals back in my product like phthalates and not tell anyone .... we are now one of the only companies that refused to use dimethiocone and we are one of the only companie producing cosmetics testing NON DEtect for ORganic fluorine ( all 12000) but we can't get funding.... we are women

All the folks still shopping at "whole foods" to avoid these toxins and buy non-gmo organic produce.... but went and injected crispr mrna gene drives into their families with ethelene glycol... safe enough for the bloodstream, but not for the face hole?
WTF is wrong with people?

Depopulation is a real objective, and yes, failing fertility has been a strategy targeted deliberately by those wanting less "cattle" on the planet. Look to the globalists and Davos.

Plus all the estrogen in the water from women on birth control urinating into the water. Some pesticides breaking down into estrogen like compounds. Same with plastics and tofu. DNA from aborted babies in vaccines that could be opposite gender. God help these younger generations.

Yesssss! FINALLY I found a documentary on this, dammit it took a long time. With PC culture and angry SJWs lurking everywhere, this information NEEDS to get out! It affects everyone. It's not like normaly healthy women WANT to fall in love with gay fetish obsessed whiny asexual trans men so wtf, MGTOWS and Feminists??? Why all the anger, all the blame on feminists and misogynists for this? We all saw endocrine disruption coming on the wave of global deregulation, chemical worship and corporatization. How does the disappearance of masculinity remotely benefit women? No...for myself, and for healthy women, we generally trust masculinity and believe when men are allowed to develop whole and intact, they are the best kind of men and we NEED strong, healthy men. This is a terrifying devolution and degradation of the gene pool and of civilization.

It’s the coffee. Godam man, I think it’s time to put this on a documentary. Coffee is toxic for the testicles and even women breastfeeding shouldnt drink coffee because that also gets into the child reproductive system.

It’s nature that’s killing men. The Y chromosome is also f***ed up but none of it affects women as bad as men. Men did it too themselves, not just the elites, it’s also regular joe who works and distribute these harmful products. What men do to the planet, her creatures and to women and children he gets karma along with his male seed germline

What I would really like to know is what I could do to fight this crisis. It's corruption at a level I can't seem to confront. Which means it's needs a movement, like an entire population that is pissed off that money has taken precedence over their health. I'm not sure that would be enough considering we'd be fighting big pharm, and the few major corporations that distributes almost all of the food we eat.

I will say this, if everyone could understand what food companies, plastic, pharmaceuticals, and the meat industry is doing to us, and if all those people refused to consume those items, companies would eventually fail to convince us to pay them to poison us. After my diagnosis and my research into what causes uterine fibroids, I have been trying to eat none of the things that cause them, which I think is impossible, unless I switch my job from running a gallery to growing and making all my own food. But by sticking mostly to organic produce, not buying packaged drinks, not buying canned foods, or meat, and processed foods, I've come pretty close. The only problem being, there is not much for me to eat, I'm always hungry because I'm ill prepared to make everything from scratch, mostly because I work full time.

I know people don't like to think about things that are overwhelming, and this is one of those things. If we take a close look at the water quality in our country, we are failing to provide a healthy base for our citizens from the start. Then when the Food and Drug Administration turns a blind eye to items, that other countries are banning due to health risks, we choose capitalism and corporations above individuals. Pharmaceuticals are of course the worst of it, you don't even have to choose to take any medications to be affected by them. Why is it legal for a product to further ruin our water supply? Does anyone think that maybe they should be responsible for upgrading water treatment plants to clean out the chemicals that are put there by their patients using the bathroom? What about the meat industry? You can buy a burger for 99 cents, which means that the cost of air pollution, water pollution, and deforestation are not included in that price. Even when you pay 10 dollars for a burger those expenses are not covered. The system is broken, and if we don't do anything about it, we won't have to worry, we won't be procreating, and we won't be alive, so I guess that is a fix too. It should however, make you a little mad, that it won't be the leaders of those corporations that die first, no, cause they don't take their own medicine, and they don't eat their own food, and they can afford better water filters than you.

A recent article in GQ echos a lot of what is in the documentary, plus it updates the information. In the GQ article, it points out that research shows now that it is a global phenomena, not limited to WHITE males at all, but it is reaching out an touching all males. Of course, the prevalence of glyphosate and phthalates is also global, whether you are a poor child in India playing with a rubber ducky, or he son of a Harvard doctor eating food wrapped in the beloved saran wrap, whether a boy in some impoverished country in Africa of a wealthy offspring in Dubai, each is equally exposed enough to bring this crisis about. In case anyone wants to look up the GQ article, it is titled Sperm Count Zero. Really, are there places where we do not use plastic of pesticides? On humanities tombstone it may end up reading "I would rather die than give up plastic", and thus is our extinction assured.

The number of chemicals that enhance estrogen (female hormone) production in the body -`Endocrine disruptors - are increasing rapidly. The latest is Glyphosate, the GMO industry herbicide.
Visualize a boy growng up - constantly doused with estrogens - is it a wonder that this body, confused by excess estrogen, wants to become a female(?). Seee TIME cover story about the 1.6 male transgenders, all wanting to become females.
At ... watch prof. Theo Colborn's video message to the president, and more, and more.

Let's not be one sided here. Did it ever occur to any of these people that a chemical that makes boys less masculine might also be making girls less feminine? As I watched the video I don't recall one woman or one girl wearing a dress. All the little girls were wearing pants and acting assertive. The research ladies were all wearing pants as well and trying to assert themselves like a man would do. I'm old enough that I still remember when girls and women were feminine and attractive instead of bold and brash like a man. I think these chemicals from petroleum are hitting us from both sides and I wouldn't doubt it if it was intentional to fulfill the globalists depopulation plan.

Charles Darwin.... The Decent of Man. read it. all that is taught is not even close to reality. man has an inherent flaw to destroy all in his wake including man himself. the Decent of Man suggests cross breading genetic pools will eventually move evolution in reverse and destroy mans progress. very interesting food for thought.

As to why would the government want to do this, they don/t ... the government is being bribed, or blackmailed by the NWO, the Illumiati also known as the shadow Government, to carry out what is known as Agenda 21 to kill off 3/4th of the worlds population, to be able to control the remaining population.

It is not just Chemicals like pesticides, we now have GMO's and Herbicides, Floride in toothpaste for 60 years, cell phone and laptop radidation, chem spills, light bulb chems, and the list goes on all of which the gov will not ban any time soon, and all of which do lower or kill the sperm count, at best kill the weaker Y sperm and leave the stronger X sperm which mean more girls. More girls than men may mean that women will not get the love, and romance and the 1 prince they were hoping for ,, it does not mean the end of the human race, it only means that the strongest best fit males will pass on their X's

Makes sense. My hubby just started taking testosterone shots about 2 years ago (when he turned 28) and come to find out...there are quite a few of the guys at his work that are having to do the same and they are in their 20s. I keep trying to get my hubby to go organic and use less chemical filled body products but he won't listen. Even even came to me the other day and said he saw something about how many different chemicals are in newborns due to the things the mother eats and wears....I told him about this crap years ago! He just won't listen. So, I'm making sure my son knows about it and doing everything I can to keep him safe.

I'm a child of the 70's, exposed to DES. My sister died two years ago of ovarian cancer but it showed up in a way they had not seen before. Of her three kids (2 girls and 1 boy), 2 are openly gay. I was her only sibling and I have always felt female. So much so that I began transition (MTF)almost 3 years ago. I don't feel wrong being me...but I do want to know why I am like this. That is what brought me here to begin with. I do believe being transgender can and does happen naturally....but I also where this can happen at a higher rate because of synthetic chemicals and drugs. My life is very difficult....but this is the hand I was dealt.

A lady posted something that may hint at the other side of the gender confusion equation. Partial Quote: "This is exactly why my boys have organic skin care".

With the drastic rise in single parenting do boys have access to any kind of male role model or are young lads now to expected to copy their mothers and use make up as part of their daily beauty routine as the new norm.

Also do growing boys subsist off calorifically deficient chick food * which is entirely adequate for the mother or sister in a family but in no way sufficient to support a nutritionally far more demanding and larger male physique while growing up.?

* Low calorie, lo-bulk stuff often built upon a foundation of leaves, or microwavables containing only a couple of hundred calories per portion, sold in supermarkets to cater to many women's eternal quest for the perfect figure.

Adolous Huxley wrote in "Brave New World" that estrogen dominance would be used to control population growth by the corporate "Controllers" IE our government. Google "Genetic Gender Manipulation" article by Dr. Ted Broer very informative and discusses the elephant in the room of government controlled eugenics programs. Wake up people. There's a reason this is happening and it's no coincidence

This is just terrible terrible pseudo-science. Correlation is not causation. There has been a lot of studies that counter these findings, offer completely different statistics and have results that differ both good and bad. The age women fall pregnant, obesity, different nations. Sex ratios are both increasing and de-creasing - but not the way it's spouted here. I am neither for nor against this argument but the science is flawed from the get-go. Documentary is not fact, people. Remember to educate yourselves before believing the crap some TV producer has edited.

Soon every single man will be buying a script for testosterone replacement every month. No wonder why chemicals are being put in foods to reduce our testosterone levels, no wonder why so many people are suffering anxiety and depression now a days, and it makes sense to understand the low energy humans face everyday. How can you avoid this? Scary that we have to fear our own environment now a days. Keep in mind guys, Zinc, DIM, fish oil, good fats and even saturated fats, exercise but specifically intense weight lifting, and cortisol control all reduce estrogen... just pointing that out.

As a baby boomer who marched and protested for the rights of women. It is the fight for the whole of humanity at stake. The chemical companies are the most corrupt group you would ever meet. Their roots are out of Nazi Germany, so do not hold your breath for any change. They all got positions in the good old USA right after the war. Many were convicted war criminals and were put in charge to start fresh in America. No I am not some nut. Just go and do your own investigating. Do not believe what I say. Go and find out for yourself.

First up, alligators are a poor example to use, because the sex of an alligator is determined by the ambient temperature at the time it was incubating in the egg, not by genes or hormones.

From Wikipedia, "The nests built on levees are warmer and thus produce males while the cooler nests of wet marsh produce females."

If there are more intersexed alligators around, it's probably because their enviroment has been disturbed, forcing them to nest in less suitable places where the ambient temperature isn't in the right range for normal male or female development.

More importantly as far as human male development is concerned, while I'm not saying that chemicals in the environment can't cause problems, there's a massive source of fetal exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals that nobody's talking about: pharmaceutical hormones. I think that doctor-prescribed medicines are the actual cause of most of the problems that are being blamed on environmental EDCs.

In the "wonder drug" years immediately after the second world war, a whole range of artificial hormone derivatives were developed and promptly pressed into service as medicines, often under completely false pretences and with little or no prior safety testing. The earliest of these treatments was an artificial estrogen called DES, which until 1971 was widely used as a treatment to prevent miscarriages. The doses used were absolutely colossal. The cumulative dose of DES over the course of a pregnancy was typically around 11 grams, roughly the equivalent in estrogen content of half a million birth control pills!

DES was abruptly withdrawn from the market in 1971 after a link to cancer was discovered, but by then, about 10 million people in total (mothers, daughters and sons) had already been exposed. DES mothers and daughters both have high rates of cancer, and many DES daughters were born with abnormalities of their internal reproductive organs that make it very difficult for them to carry a pregnancy to term. That's if they are able to get pregnant at all; many of them are infertile.

By contrast, the official line is that the DES sons came through their exposure almost totally unscathed. I wanted to find out about the effects on male development of being prenatally exposed to high doses of artificial female hormones, and so for the last couple of years I've been trying to find out as much as I can about DES sons. If the ones I've had contact with are in any way representative of DES sons as a whole, then there's been a whopping cover up. They seem to have experienced very high rates of fertility problems, intersex-related genital abnormalities, endocrine disorders, and psychological problems such as depression, ADHD and Asperger's. Perhaps the most interesting thing is that a third if not more of the DES sons I've had contact with seem to identify as women!

Although DES itself is no longer used, other treatments involving high doses of female hormones took its place, and are still being used to prevent miscarriages even now. There's one called Proluton Depot which certainly looks like it could interfere with normal male development, but there are probably others too. With these hormone treatments, the regulators, the pharmaceutical companies, and doctors, all seem to have forgotten that a pregnant woman is actually two people, and 50 percent of the time her unborn baby is a boy!

never mind this damn stuff has caused massive rise in cancers in women...this estrogen dominance from chemicals that disrupt natural hormone and replace those receptors with the chemical, causing estrogen dominance in turn creating massive issues for women..this information has been around for decades and no one notices until men are threatened? bulls*it! The point being, this is not new, which goes to show they have been very successful in misleading and spreading disinformation. Ever so clever keeping truth out of the main stream public's eye... Those of us watching these issues unfold like a napkin at a dinner party full of drunks, well we wait and watch and act as much as we can and no one is listening...and those who may hear but not truly hear just shrug these issues off as nonsense. Many are finally waking up to these issues but still in all actuality...there are not enough people really paying heed nor do they believe. They'd rather argue the issue. Why bother.

You guys are all so egocentric and are only focusing on what this means for human reproduction and you are forgetting what they were saying about fish and crocodiles and such. What is the life cycle of the animals exposed to these toxins? If this indicates a decrease in the third generation that means you are going to have to worry about the the extinction of food species real soon we wont have to worry about our inability to reproduce because we will have died from famine long before that

tbh none of this is surprising. i realized all this on my own within the past decade as ive began to suffer a wide array of health ailments (as a male).

it seems we have set ourselves up to end the y chromosome and honestly? the future will be better off without us. i am so tired of machoism and hearing males use the word f..a..ggot towards each other. in general i think males suck and the future will be better off without us. i also hate females though since they are the cause of all the inherited genetic disorders us males must suffer with, and they are still disgusting humans in their own right... nevertheless, i think girls are in general much happier and live exalted existences compared to males.

death to us
