I’ve read numerous studies linking the prevalence of PFAS to infertility, hormone disruption in both men and women.
South Korea has one of the highest rates of PFAS contamination.
Other generations have been poor, or juggled family and home businesses, but nonetheless each generation has had young men and women anxious to get into relationships with each other.
Dating behavior is WAYY down.
Electronic distractions are a contributor, and social disengagement. But biology is more powerful than economics.
