The 4 Biggest Future Dangers for America That You've Never Heard Of

The Debt. Nuclear bombs. Widespread terrorist attacks with WMDs. Biological weapons. Asteroids. These are not threats that anyone should take lightly because they have the potential to do almost incalculable damage to our nation’s future. However, there are other major concerns that have the potential to break our country (and many other Western nations) that you don’t hear much about.

1. No more babies

Did you know sperm counts are dropping all across the Western world?

Researchers assessing the results of nearly 200 studies say sperm counts among men from North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, seem to have halved in less than 40 years. ...Dr Levine, from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, found a 52.4% decline in sperm concentration, and a 59.3% decline in total sperm count in men from North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The study also indicates the rate of decline among men living in these countries is continuing and possibly even increasing.

 The scariest thing about this? No one knows exactly why it’s happening. Sure, there’s lots of speculation about chemicals and changing diets, but nobody can definitively point to what’s causing this problem. Wouldn’t it be ironic if our world didn’t end with a nuclear exchange or an enormous asteroid hitting the planet, but rather with no more strollers, cribs and children?
