Will we humans survive?


The survival of the Human race is in our hands. It does not look very good. There are so many factors one has to take into account but most of these are being made or influenced by us. Our Planet is such a wonderful place, it is abundant in clean water, beautiful nature and it could provide for our everyday needs.

The problem is we always want more, we want the latest, the biggest and the most expensive. The more we turn away from nature and consume man-made gadgets and man-made food we are not really doing our best for the continuation of the human race.




The dangers of Pollution

Our environment is getting polluted and we as people are getting sicker. Because all these negative impacts are influencing humans in unusual ways. An important fact is being discussed lately. Sperm count drop could make humans extinct.

I remember when Elvis Presley came on the scene, tight jeans and an electric guitar. People were saying that it was not healthy. Well, the world population continued growing as we all know. This time it does seem a serious issue and is documented in a BBC news article written by Pallab Ghosh on July 25th, 2016.

The evaluation by researchers of some 200 studies rings an alarm bell. The sperm count of men in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand seems to have halved in the last 40 years.
All this being due to our modern lifestyle, stress, man-made foods, toxins, and chemicals in the air and water, and radiation just to name some. Men are becoming more like women, too many female hormones everywhere. At this rate, the human race will become extinct.

The other culprit seems to be smoking and obesity linked to a sedentary lifestyle.

In Newsweek on the 25th of Jan. 2015, an article was published written by Douglas Main saying that BPA disrupts sperm development and therefore is linked to the decline in male fertility.

Plastic bottles may contain Bisphenol-A or similar estrogenic chemicals and our men are becoming feminized. BPA and those other estrogenic chemicals seem to damage stem cells. There also seems a possibility that these alterations in the stem cells will be passed down to future generations.


Plastic Bottles

Plastic Bottles


What normally happens in those cases from the side of the industry, makers of those plastic bottles deny any negative side effects of using their products. That is normal as they earn the money and you pay, apart from cash, with your health in the long run. BPA is just one of those dangerous modern things, we are surrounded by unhealthy things which have an impact on our health and that of future generations.



The ban on BPA

As so much has been written on the negative effects of BPA in plastic bottles and the fact that it has been banned in various countries, manufacturers have started finding a substitute. One of the new substitutes is called BHPF = fluorene-9-bisphenol and is already widely used. This new substance is also harmful to our health. As when BPA binds to the body’s estrogen receptors, BHPF just blocks their normal activity.

There you see, from one bad and unnatural thing on to the next. One should avoid using plastic as much as possible. Do not drink water from a plastic bottle, take a glass bottle, this also applies to Baby bottles. Even low levels of these chemicals have a negative influence on fertility.

As the last tip. Avoid putting plastic containers in microwave or dishwashers, the plastic will degrade under the heat and the fact that the micro oven changes your food on a molecular level while in the meantime you are being radiated does not help your health either.



Modern times make it more difficult for men to stay healthy as a lot of man-made items are not good for your health, stay informed and thus keep the human race from becoming extinct.

Thanks for sharing this very interesting article on your website Taetske. I have always been fascinated by what causes a civilisation to grow to its pinnacle and just vanish, and our human race is just following the same evolution. We came from nowhere, grew over the millennials and now it seems that we have nothing more to learn or construct, so we are starting to destroy our race.
It happened over and over, as we know now that many planets might have had some sort of life, perhaps millions of years ago and have just wiped out themselves. Are we following the same pattern? Well, in the main time, lets do the most of what we have left and try to keep it for as long as we can.
I wish you a very healthy lifestyle Taetske and I look forward to more of your great articles.

    Good afternoon John,

    I am happy to hear you found my last post interesting. I am convinced that on the long run we will find proof of life on other planets. We are only standing at the very beginning of the exploring what is beyond our planet. For sure that immeasurable space out there with all the milky ways we have discovered up till now were not put up there for mere decoration. I do not think our human brain is capable to even understand a fraction of it all. When one looks at those amazing photos taken by Hubble etc. one realizes our insignificance. This coming Monday I will publish a new post. It will be on the Stones of Ica. Have you heard of that? You might like to visit again and read it.

    Regards, Taetske

I like your interesting perspectives on these topics. I agree that smoking and a sedentary lifestyle are really messing with people and the population. I don’t know how, this day in age, people don’t realize these massive issues. I stopped drinking water out of disposable every day bottles lately and really have saved a lot of money in that process as well!

    Good Morning Ben,
    Thank you for reading this article on my website. Good to hear you have stopped drinking water from plastic bottles, your health will thank you. The more one investigates these type of issues the more nasty things come to light, it is more and more difficult to avoid all these harmful substances. The best one can do is to stay informed and also use one’s intelligence as often big company’s will not tell you the truth. On my website I have also written a post on plastic in our food, the whole thing is hairraising, let’s go back to nature.

Thank you for your interesting article.

It is clear that from generation to generation we have gradually caused harm to the world and now is definitely the time to start putting measures in place to improve and repair the environment. As you comment, replacing plastic bottles or cutting down on the use of plastic in general is a fantastic initiative not just for humans but for all wildlife though as you mention we need to ensure that we are not replacing them with something just as harmful as the knock on effects could be deadly.

    Good afternoon,

    It is sad to observe the possible decline of the human race. Really, it is mainly our fault. If only we would realize this and take measures as it is not too late, but nearly.

    Thank you for your comment. I hope you have downloaded your free PDF?

You know I have strong feeling when it comes to this.

You are quite right, the planet is a beautiful and wonderful place, but in my opinion, the human race has been (and continues to be) the cause of its downfall!

The pollution we pump into the air every day (even subconsciously as we drive our cars) not to mention the factory output, the garbage and plastic in the seas, the cutting of forests, the digging of oil, the killing of animals. Pretty soon, there will be nothing left for us to destroy.

I think the human race is happy to see this happen, as little is being done to actually prevent it. 

Oh yes, and once this is all achieved, this is not enough, the human race is looking to go to Mars. Let us see what is left of that planet too in thousands of years to come.

It is a strong opinion I know, but I think if the human race was never to have been, the earth would be in a lot better situation that it is today!

So, will we survive? NO. We will make sure of that all by ourselves.

Interesting information, you got me on my soapbox 🙂

    Good afternoon Chris,

    You know something? I could copy and paste your comment and use it as my reply. Personally, I do not give up hope yet but it certainly does not look good. I do not know if the Martians would be welcoming us, after all, we would be considered a hoard of invading emigrants.

    In the movie The Matrix, Mr. Smith describes humans as being a virus. 

    Both my websites, motherearthstreasures, and healthyantiaging are sandboxes and with each post, they get bigger.

    I will send you the link to another post where you will see a video which portrays how awful we humans actually are.

Hi Taetske, 

This is a very interesting article, my website is focusing on the ways that men can increase testosterone production. This goes hand in hand with things like sperm count, chemicals like BPA & BPS in plastics, hormones found in foods and other endocrine disruptors in the products we use daily all contribute to this, it’s good to see other people focusing on this subject!

    Good afternoon Nate,

    It certainly is not easy to remain healthy in these modern times. It seems that with each human invention some nasty strings are attached. The fact that men start developing breasts, awful. I can tell you from a woman’s point of view it is not nice, most women want real men. To think we are doing these stupid things to ourselves, not good!

    Do send me a link to one of your posts, I am interested in reading it.

    Thank you for your visit. I hope you have downloaded your free PDF?

Hi Taetske,great article that you have produced here.I like how you have listed possible threat sources to the human race as pollution,BPA,sperm count drop etc.I believe all of this stuff to be true as i think we are surrounded by poisons on all sides in diet and rthe environment.I especially liked the link off to the site on the feminizing of men.Some of the facts in there even suprised me.Good work here Taetske,well done !!

    Good afternoon Billy,

    Thank you for visiting my website and leaving a comment. I hope you have downloaded your free PDF?

    Yes, that link is a frightening one and to think we are doing this to ourselves. The more “modern” our world is getting the more health hazards will pop up. For the so-called commodities, health risks are included. Not so easy to remain healthy these days. Personally, I like men to remain, real men, the ones that come from Mars.

Thank you for sharing this article with loads of information. I am really trying my best to stay away from things or foods that contain potentially harmful chemicals. Like you, I also believe that the continuation of the human race lies in our hands.

I am aware of the bad effects of BPA to health and I actually wrote an article about this. But it never occurred to me that water bottles made of plastic also contain BPA. I am so focused on drinking the daily recommended amount of water that I  totally forgot all about it. I find it easy to drink water from 330 ml plastic water bottles that’s why I order 3-4 boxes of bottled water every month. 

It really is difficult to stay healthy these modern times.

    Good afternoon Alice,

    Thank you for visiting my website and leaving a comment. I hope you have downloaded your free PDF?

    All these types of issues worry me. On my other website healthy antiaging alternatives, I have written many posts related to all these modern things. From GMO, pesticides, plastic in your food, the health risk of sugar, and the list goes on.

    As we have turned away from nature we certainly are paying a high price. These days we have some more health hazards in the form of different radiations, very worrying indeed.

    Do send me the link to your post, I am interested in reading it.
