Little known study reveals that Roundup influences sperm count.

The Glyphoshate based , (a Monsanto product), has been linked to a global reduction of sperm count in a little known Brazilian study.

The research reveals that approximately 5-15 percent of the human count is on average classified as “normal” under the rules.

The Brazilan study by researchers at the University of Santa Catarina, titled Roundup Disrupted Male By Triggering Calcium-Mediated Cell Death In And Sertoli Cells, showed that “acute Roundup exposure at low doses (36ppm, 0.036g/L) for 30min induces oxidative stress and activates multiple stress-response pathways leading to Sertoli cell death in prepubertal

The introduction to the study concluded: “Glyphosate has been described as an affecting the ; however, the molecular basis of its toxicity remains to be clarified. We could propose that Roundup toxicity, implicating in Ca2+ overload, cell signaling misregulation, stress response of the endoplasmic reticulum and/or depleted could contribute to Sertoli cell disruption of that could impact male fertility.”

  Professor Niels Skakkebaek of the University of Copenhagen presented data indicating sperm counts had fallen by about a half over the past 50 years. Sperm counts in the 1940s were typically well above 100m per , but Professor Skakkebaek found they have dropped to an average of about 60m per ml. 2011 marked the 20th anniversary of the WHO conference where Professor Niels Skakkebaek first alerted the world to the fact that Western men are suffering an infertility crisis.  Sperm counts in the 1940s were typically well above 100m per , but Professor Skakkebaek found they have dropped to an average of about 60m per ml.

The studies specify that there is a link between environmental factors that can influence sperm count. Given the widespread global application of Roundup it is reasonable to assume that it has a detrimental effect on male infertility.
