UAE Male Infertility

This is the kind of shit that drove me batty about Dubai; check out this article from the Gulf News: “Pollution, diet blamed for male infertility in UAE.”

So you’d think there’d be, you know, facts and figures about pollution and diet trends to support the premise of the article.

Nope.

In fact, I wonder if there is any infertility at all. This quote specifically makes me wonder:

According to a recent World Health Organisation study, there has been a decline in births in the UAE from 5.7 children per woman down to less than two children, over the past two decades.

Perhaps this “male infertility” is just the UAE joining most other developed countries where fertility rates decrease to levels below replacement rates?

How about that?
