We recently discussed how industrial seed oils, better known as vegetable oils, are dangerous to health and should as much as possible be eliminated from the diet of anyone who wants to stay healthy. For men, another danger of vegetable oils is that they promote low sperm counts and infertility.
It was recently reported that, in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, sperm counts have declined nearly 60% in about the last 40 years, between 1973 and 2011.
In contrast, no decline in sperm counts was seen in South America, Asia, and Africa, although far fewer studies have been performed in these regions. …

Scientists who study aging are keen to discover the driving forces that cause it, but they often seem to be unable to distinguish between aging in itself and poor health, especially when studying human beings. I believe that much of aging is just poor health habits.
Is gaining fat, losing muscle, or developing insulin resistance and diabetes a normal part of aging?
Obviously, virtually all living things age and die. (“Virtually” because a few living things appear not to age at all.) While aging is a natural process, so infectious and genetic diseases are natural processes too, and we’ve largely discovered how to deal with the first, and are working on the second. …
