Dr. Shanna Swan joins us today as we’re digging into why male and female fertility is declining and what you can do to improve your egg/sperm health.
At Fab Fertile HQ we talk about the importance of eliminating exposure to environmental toxins. This is crucial for both male and female fertility. A 2017 study from an environmental and reproductive epidemiologist, Dr. Shanna Swan has found:
Sperm counts have declined by more than 50% over the last 40 years. Current projections point to sperm counts reaching zero by 2045.
We’ve been using each other and our unborn children as guinea pigs for endocrine-disrupting chemicals and this experiment is taking a toll on our reproductive health and the future of the human race.
This is a call to action and an urgent wake-up call. Learn how to protect yourself and avoid chemical exposure so that you can get pregnant naturally.
I’m excited to welcome Dr. Shanna Swan. She is an award-winning scientist based at Mt. Sinai and one of the world’s leading environmental and reproductive epidemiologists. Dr. Swan has published more than 200 scientific papers and has been featured in extensive media coverage around the world. She is the author of the book – Count Down - How Our Modern World Is Threatening Sperm Counts, Altering Male and Female Reproductive Development, and Imperiling the Future of the Human Race
