In the last 20 years male virility has been on the decline. Sadly, over this period of time men have also become less manly. In the last 20 years testosterone levels of average American man have been on a steady decline.
In fact, it has become so bad that for many of us, our own fathers and grandfathers had higher T levels than we do today. The decline in male virility is much more than just low T levels. Its about overall male health. And that has been on the decline too.
Many of the foods we eat and toxins we are exposed to are linked to obesity and hormonal imbalances in men as well as a slew of additional male health problems.
One such problem is the increase in men suffering from man-boobs (gynecomastia). The number of recorded cases of gynecomastia are on the rise. Just last year, the number of operations for gynecomastia increased by 38%.
It has not always been this way.
Less than 50 years ago, men were fit, healthy and strong. This was a time when we were raised on real foods and many of our vegetables were home grown. GMOs did not exist.
Chemical food additives were rarely part of our diet and it was a time when pharmaceuticals and prescription drugs were only considered medicine for sick people – not the whole population.
As a result men in the 1950’s and 1960’s were healthy, intelligent, fit, lean and full of virility. Some of the brightest minds lived in the early nineteen hundreds, such as Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, and Nikola Tesla.
Life was good.
During the 1960’s the post-war American population was on the rise. Marriages and large families were on the rise and virility was at its peak. Suburbs began to explode as three to four child families became the norm. During this time the American population increased by almost 30 million people. During these years, most people were healthy, intelligence, fit, lean and full of vigor.
Then Came Industrialized Farming….
With the widespread use of industrial farming techniques, the same soil was used to grow the same crop – year after year. Within a few short years, this resulted in nutrient deficient fruits and vegetables.
According to 40 year study done by the university of Texas, the nutritional values of many fruits and vegetables over this period of time have decreased up to 40%.
Then Came Processed Foods….
In the late 1950’s large food conglomerates began churning out highly processed, nutrient depleted foods at a pace never before seen by humanity.
It did not help they were already using the nutrient deficient food from industrial farming practices.
By the time the 1980’s rolled around, many of us forgot the basics of simple nutrition and what wholesome food looked like.
Then Came Big Pharma…
The answer to America’s growing health problem was synthesized drugs.
The traditional medicines used for thousands of years by many indigenous and native people were now vilified by the pharmaceutical industry, in favor for their expensive trademarked concoctions manufactured in a lab.
What most people don’t realize is many of these synthesized drugs were simply chemical copy-cats of these traditional medicines. The same traditional medicines vilified by the pharmaceutical industry.
One such example is the compound found in the bark of a willow tree. It has been used by Native America Indians for hundreds of years as a natural painkiller. Today, that same ingredient is manufactured in a lab and commonly known as “Aspirin” (ASA).
Today prescription drugs are the norm with “alternative” medicine forced into the backseat.
The Problems We Experience Today…
Many of the health problems experienced today, including poor virility are simply related to nutrient deficiencies in our body and exposure to the daily exposure to toxins in our environment.
There is a solution and it is very simple.
Swap out nutrient poor foods for nutrient rich foods. Reduce exposure to many of the hormone-mimicking compounds found in our environment and understand there are many highly effective and traditional remedies and medicines available.
Many of these remedies have been used for thousands of years. They have been shown to increase T levels, virility, promote hormonal balance and improve male performance.
