‘Men in America’: It’s odd how rarely you hear the problems with American men publicly acknowledged. Our leaders pledge to create more opportunities for women and girls, whom they imply are failing. Men are fine. But are they? The numbers say otherwise; Homicide, suicide, and assault rates are higher in males. Testosterone may play an important role in the development of these behaviors.
We have seen that in recent years the male suicide rate has increased, in fact 90% of shootings in schools are carried out by men. Something ominous is happening to men in America. Everyone who pays attention knows that it is rare that we hear about it publicly acknowledged because men are ‘’more than fine’’ here are the numbers.
The average man in America will die 5 years before the average American woman, one of the main reasons is addiction, to alcohol, to drugs etc. The saddest reason of shortest lifespan is suicide, 77% of all sucides in America are committed by men, with a 43% increase from 1997 to 2014 also over 90% of inmates are male.
We can also see the education gap, boys are failing in school, more girls than boys graduate from high school and college, 1 of 5 boys were diagnosed with hyperactivity and the long term effects of this medication is depresion. Even physically, men are falling behind 70% are fat or obese. But, What biological reason would affect this?
Sperm count down 60% since the 70s, huge testosterone declines, 30% declines in 40 old men, low testosterone leads to depression, weight gain and lethargy, but why is testosterone falling? There are very few studies that are investigating this situation, in fact, even the media ignore it.
