Access to the ARPANET was expanded in 1981 when the National Science Foundation (NSF) developed the Computer Science Network (CSNET) and again in 1986 when NSFNET provided access to supercomputer sites in the United States from research and education organizations. Commercial Internet service providers (ISPs) began to emerge in the late 1980s and 1990s. The ARPANET was decommissioned in 1990. The Internet was commercialized in 1995 when NSFNET was decommissioned, removing the last restrictions on the use of the Internet to carry commercial traffic.
Since the mid-1990s the Internet has had a drastic impact on culture and commerce, including the rise of near-instant communication by electronic mail, instant messaging, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) "phone calls", two-way interactive video calls, and the World Wide Web with its discussion forums, blogs, social networking, and online shopping sites. The research and education community continues to develop and use advanced networks such as NSF's very high speed Backbone Network Service (vBNS), Internet2, and National LambdaRail. Increasing amounts of data are transmitted at higher and higher speeds over fiber optic networks operating at 1-Gbit/s, 10-Gbit/s, or more. The Internet continues to grow, driven by ever greater amounts of online information and knowledge, commerce, entertainment and social networking.

Don't believe this is true. If the internet was the problem the USA would be affected most.
"Groups like the Center for Reproductive Epidemiology at the University of Rochester Medical Center are adding weight to the idea that sperm is taking a hit, possibly from environmental chemicals. Although the center’s director Shanna Swan concedes it is hard to know for sure, she put the yearly sperm drop at 1.5 percent in the U.S. and 3 percent in Europe and Australia."
If you accept these numbers then it isn't the Internet or radiation. Australia and Europe have the same problem. Since the US is in the lead on GMO it isn't GMO. Haven't seen statistics on it but the USA is a bigger consumer of webporn so that isn't it either.
The plastics and food additives are a promising place to start. Manboobs are becoming enough of a problem that there could be something to this pseudoestrogen thing. Industrial processes are used for too many food additives and plastics line or package everything. The plasticisers from packaging and microwave containers leech into the food.
Transfats were a good example of the industrial food problem - vegetable oil was heated under pressure with hydrogen. Hydrogen was randomly added to the fat molecules . This created solid shortening containing a lot of fat molecules not found in nature.
Another factor is Europe has twice the population density.
