Until now, you probably haven’t associated infertility with the collapse of our global population. From the U.S. to India, to South Korea, Canada, the U.K. and more, fertility rates are reaching critical levels. Humans now meet 3 criterias for being an endangered species.
If that doesn’t have you totally rattled yet, our guest today, Dr. Shanna Swan, epidemiologist best known for research she published in 2017 which set off alarms and caught the attention of major media and scholars around the world, joins Tom to highlight the many factors contributing to a 50% drop in fertility rates, testosterone, and reproductive function.
Shanna’s work quickly became the world’s 26th most referenced scientific paper, and her latest 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, delivers a less than optimistic view of guaranteed economic population collapse.
The information Dr. Shanna shares brings up major concerns for the future of humanity as a species and for our current health.
Chemicals leading to our extinction have some government incentivizing people to have sex and procreate.
Women’s education and rights to contraception, and urbanization are contributing to women’s lack of interest in birthing 5 and 6 kids.
Endocrine disrupting chemicals are nearly unavoidable as they’re in what you eat, drink and breathe
The under masculinization of males is an actual problem impacting their lifespan
Lifestyle factors are part of this conversation and include obesity, stress, binge drinking, and poor metabolic health
Shanna gives a masterclass on phthalates, a chemical found in plastics that make them softer, helps products be more absorbable, holds scent and color better in everyday products we’re accustomed to using, and she shares a simple poem to help you identify safer recycled plastic options. Looking at the number on your plastic bottles, commit this to memory…

Super podcast episode ... very informative ... bought Mindy's book for my wife!
This one didn't do it for me. He didn't sound convincing nor invited me to go down the rabbit hole to explore his point of view.
Great, thank you, I could listen you two for hours no end.
nice description and tempting for me
This man, Yuval, is as evil as Hitler was. I have been listening to you for years and will continue to because you're awesome. But giving people like this a platform is concerning.
Bleeping every time Tom B. uses the "f" word is ... disruptive. When and why did this start?
I loved the previous pod with Trap & Tom, and this one doesn't disappoint at all. Thank you🙏🏼❤️💯🔥
Vitamins play a huge role in the modern world. The main thing among all the variety is to learn how to choose the right thing that will help you improve your health. I found the best option for me here https://www.amazon.in/Prorganiq-Multivitamin-Vitamin-Minerals-Antioxidant/dp/B0BK5J9YJK
An excellent primer and reminder of the proven core principles of how money the economy and wealth operates. We are at such a crucial time in history (no hyperbole) that people are going either feral, or fetal. Tom's candor is always a welcome voice on this subject, especially in the opening when he very plainly states how money is a ridiculously misunderstood subject. When we finally accept that it's not really complicated, - the economy, both micro and macro - but we all have complexes build up around it, then we can begin to unwind the faulty programs that are keeping us impoverished. Alright. Thank Tom. Peace Love Unity and having Big Ambitions Hotep Y'all 🌄
