Population Threatened Starting 2045, Scientists Are Looking For Ways To Prevent Humans From Extinction

JAKARTA – Mount Sinai Medical School in New York City documents how quality sperm men have decreased drastically in the last 40 years. If there is no solution, it is not impossible that the human population will decline because it is predicted that the average sperm quality will be zero in 2045.
Experts predict that most couples will need medical assistance to get pregnant by 2045. The reason is none other than because chemicals damage sperm quality and human health.
Now scientists are conducting experiments on monkey sperm. The good news is that scientists at the University of Georgia were able to produce functional sperm cells from rhesus monkey embryonic stem cells.
Scientists at the University of Georgia created embryonic cells in tubes using stem cells collected from rhesus macaques to produce immature sperm cells called round spermatids.
Lead researcher Charles Easley said this is a major breakthrough to produce stem cell-based therapies to treat male infertility that produce cells sperm bad.
“This is the first step to show that this technology has potential. We used more relevant species for experiments and succeeded in making healthy embryos,” he said as quoted by the Daily Star, Sunday (24/10/2021).
Previously, scientists had been able to make cells similar to sperm using mouse stem cells, but the sperm production of rodents is very different from that of humans.
