In the land of Belarus after 2000, testosterone levels are 356 ng/dl.
How does Belarus’s testosterone level compare with testosterone in other places in the world?
There’s an unexplained testosterone crash in most parts of the world, over the last few decades. Belarus is experiencing this same testosterone drop. What they are going through is a lot like the rest of the world’s drop, but Belarus seems to be going even lower than the rest. Their testosterone is disturbingly low. Could it be due to Chernobyl, which occurred nearby?
Belarus used to have high testosterone
In 1977, in Minsk, Belarus, they had testosterone of 745 ng/dl, according to a study by a researcher named Livshits. This was a good high level. We are not sure why testosterone in Belarus has fallen so far down in the last 45 years.
