Big Takeaways from COUNT DOWN

There is so much great information packed into this easy-to-read 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 by Shanna H. Swan Ph.D.

A quick summary is from page 1: "In Western countries, sperm counts and men's testosterone levels have declined dramatically over the last four decades, as my own research and that of others has found. Also, increasing numbers of girls are experiencing early puberty, and grown women are losing good-quality eggs at younger ages than expected; they're also suffering more miscarriages. It's no longer business as usual when it comes to human reproduction."

Quick to dos are from pages 174 - 179: Steer clear of ciagarett smoke. Strive to maintain a healthy weight. Upgrade your diet. Keep moving. Get a grip on unhealthy stress. I doubt any of these tips are new to any of you. The question is are you doing these things?

And more to dos are in Chapter 12 Reducing the Chemical Footprint in your Home: Making It a Safer Haven. And this is what I mainly focus on in my website. Because though I DAILY talk about and share about safer ingredients, most people still do not realize that what they are injesting, putting on their skin and using in their homes has unsafe and/or questionnable ingredients. You cannot rely on the label or marketing of products. You must read the ingredient label every time.

This is now my passion and my FUN. Reach out if there is anyway I can help you with your journey to safer products.
