Men’s Health Issues
|Impotence and infertility
With the exception of chronic degenerative disorders like heart disease and cancer, some of the greatest problems faced by men in industrialized countries are impotence and infertility. Impotence may be caused by high levels of stress, certain prescription drugs or the general overuse of drugs, and nutritional imbalances. Infertility is generally caused by ineffective sperm. Sperm is very sensitive to environmental and nutritional factors.
Both of these factors have been negatively affected during the last decades of the 20th century in western societies. Exposure to industrial or environmental toxins, anabolic steroids, thoughtless drug use and excessive alcohol consumption can affect the production and mobility of sperm. Poor diet can cause hormonal imbalances with very similar results.
Enlarged prostate (benign prostate hyperplasia) has also gradually attained epidemic proportions. The prostate gland surrounds the urethra. As the prostate grows it causes a narrowing of the urethra, and makes urination difficult. This in turn can cause urine to remain longer in the bladder, stagnate, and become susceptible to infection and stone formation, while if the obstruction is extended one risks damage to the kidneys. Today it is known that part of the problem is growth hormones. These are given to food animals, and they pass to humans via the food chain. One more example of thoughtless progress.
