A new study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine has reported that testosterone levels in young American men is falling rapidly.
The study included 4,045 men that were from 15-39 years old, and controlled for factors such as age, race, and level of physical activity.
What were the results of the study?
That these men had 25% less testosterone than men of the same age in 1999.
A 25% drop in just 20 years!
That is an alarming decrease. What is going on?
Btw, we have also seen declines in men’s sperm counts during the last few decades, and it is believed that the two are related. I have previously written about this here.
So what is the reason why testosterone levels are plummeting?
The answer is probably complex, and there are probably more than one cause.
But a large portion of the answer probably has to do with our lifestyle:
We eat lots of unhealthy and unprocessed foods. We eat too much meat. Meat often contains antibiotics and hormones. Food also often contains herbicides and pesticides. We eat foods that our bodies don’t really want. All of this can negatively impact your testosterone production.
Also, we consume microplastic. A recent study found that we consume about 5 grams of microplastic a week mostly through the air, our food and the water we drink. 5 grams of plastic is the equivalent of a credit card.
Lack of exercise, lack of sleep, too much stress, little sunshine and mental issues, can all also decrease your testosterone production.
In addition, most of us breathe polluted air and drink water that contains toxins like chlorine.
And we are surrounded by radiation from wireless networks, laptops, mobile phones, tables, cars, buildings, etc.
We also use or are exposed to household products, cleaners, soaps, etc. that can disturb your hormone balance.
In other words, there are plenty of dangers out there for your testosterone manufacturing capacity.
However, there are ways to combat this. There are steps you can take to reverse this.
