Whether someone believes in God or evolution, one thing remains the same. Even when clothes become outdated, iPods are traded in for the latest craze, and no one wants a particular hairstyle anymore, one thing remains the same. It is the one thing that created Paris Hilton, Denzel Washington, and Charles Manson. It is the one thing that never goes out of style, never is subject to evolution, and never gets old. It’s the animal sperm cell, and it’s 600 million years old, according to the latest findings!
The sperm gene, Boule, is responsible for sperm production. This is the case for all animals whether they are insects, mammals, or reptiles. There is likely one prototype for the sperm gene Boule states researchers. This does not prove evolution, though.
Sperm production, alpha males, and reproductive success are vital for the continuation of one’s legacy and the animal kingdom. However, despite all of the advancements in history and the evolutionary process by which animals have adapted to their changing environment, Boule does not change.
The wing of a butterfly, a bird, and a mosquito are vastly different. However, each one flies just the same. Also true is the fact that each one carries Boule, the same genetic material that has been around for 600 million years.
This discovery, which began to be researched back in 2001, has been celebrated recently as a possible application towards the advancement in medical treatments. For example, by suppressing the Boule gene, male contraception can be created. A reduction in vector born diseases (like mosquitoes) can be realized finally. Perhaps later on, male infertility can be reversed by creating synthetic Boule. This could further reduce disease and death in third-world countries.
Like a packaging plant, creating sperm unique to the animal is a three step process. Boule begins the assembly line by making the sperm cells and fluid by which to deliver the product to the female.
The testicles make enhancements and do the middle management of sperm production. This is where further refinement is processed.
Finally, it is the last stage by which unique DNA modifiers are applied. This is where “fish sperm” or “monkey sperm” is identifiable and no longer resembles sperm from any other animals. A head and tail is added onto the sperm in the last stage as well. Meiosis expressed gene 1, or MEIG1, can make or break the fertility of the male animal. This is where a “dud” occurs. Even if Boule and the middle management has done their part successfully, nothing can be reproduced without the proper “delivery system.”
Maturation, which begins in puberty and continues throughout a male animal’s life, of sperm cells is vital to reproduction success. In previous years, male contraception was thought to be possible by stopping the maturation of sperm cells. However, this was a hit or miss process which had a lot of difficulty in administrating in lab tests. It also had bad side affects on lab animals.
With the acclaimed discovery of Boule, and it’s never-changing genetics, a more successful and less risky approach to male contraception and disease prevention can be obtained.
Most men agree that vasectomies and condoms aren’t very desirable. The great strides in female contraception, as advanced as they have become, aren’t always impressionable upon their counterparts-mainly because of the pain, side affects, and complications. The suppression of the Boule gene can eradicate all of these issues someday. Reversibility of that Boule gene suppression can also be created.
What’s more, many countries currently have barriers in place for traditional contraception. In countries like the Middle East, which this author has explained in previous articles, males shun their female partners from using birth control. It is considered unnatural; males want to be in control of family planning-without the female’s involvement whatsoever; and they don’t want their wives to go to a male doctor for an exam. By conceiving male contraception, these social issues will no longer be a problem!
Male contraception can also have a rippling effect on world hunger, worldwide abortion of unwanted babies, poverty, child abuse/neglect/homicide, and a host of other social maladies. The effects of introducing male contraception into a world urgently needing to reduce unwanted, unloved children are pivotal and exciting! The recent discovery of the sperm gene Boule is one of the best news stories in recent history!
