More than a million men sterile in China
7 November 2011
At least a million men in China have fertility problems, the Beijing Times reported on Monday.
According to a research, millions of men have prostatic disorders in China, the report said. More than a million men have been found to be infertile, and 50 percent of men over the age of 40 have ED (erectile dysfunction), the paper said.
The increase in male infertility is closely related to increasing pressure in day-to-day life and environmental deterioration, Ye Linyang, director of the urology department of Beijing-based 304 Military Hospital, told the paper. "Symptoms of male menopause which should appear in men above 60 can now be found in men around 40," said Ye.
A public education campaign on men's health will be launched by the China Health Education Center, the paper said. The campaign aims to reach 250 million people, 20 percent of the total population, through publicity on posters and distributing health education handbooks, the paper said.
It was estimated that China population now has reach 1.3 billion. The world just celebrated the 7 billionth baby so we can say that China population is almost 20% of the world. And if not due to one child policy that on effect since 1979 China would have more people.
And just wonder if the "At least a million men in China have fertility problems," were ok, then how many people would be in China.
