The U.S. fertility rate is at an all-time record low. Are we watching the leading edge of a slowly moving tidal wave of infertility? What is causing the current generation of adults of childbearing age to become infertile? What can be done about it?
In Part I John P. Thomas looks at some of the scientific research concerning environmental factors and lifestyle choices that contribute to the high rate of infertility in America. One out of every six couples in the United States is infertile.
In Part II, John discusses practical steps that infertile couples can take to prepare themselves for conceiving and giving birth to a healthy child. He shares recommendations from physicians and researchers who support the use of lifestyle changes to bring about pregnancy for couples who are having difficulty conceiving.
These suggestions are intended as alternatives to medical and pharmaceutical approaches for overcoming infertility. The use of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) is the medical system’s approach for treating infertility. ART has high costs and serious risks, which many couples do not realize.
