Well aside from my previous suggestion of women marrying into my hubby's family tree, we could try getting women to marry and have kids earlier in life. But then it would cause some to cry sexism if they were told to have kids sooner to increase the chances of males being born. I'm sure some would see it as an attempt to get women back in the kitchen and out of the workplace, so that wouldn't work... I'm sure I will have a brilliant idea just as I fall asleep, and then instantly forget it of course, but as of now I'm coming up blank..

It could get ugly all things considered, but your also dealing with a species that has by the genome come down to a very small number like 20 of us multiple times and rebounded.
There's no accounting for genes, 6 Billion to me is allot it would take a multiple of factors to get us all... a complete covering of the Earth in High amounts of multiple poisons... and still there would be some creeps that have the ability to hide underground for decades
I myself... for some reason never get sick...
Hard to explain that, but I haven't had to go to a doctor in 20 years aside from routine exams
My Grandpa was just like me
Died at 97, in his sleep... never a cold as long as I knew him
He had no special diet or anything... just lived, liked a nice cigar and a scotch too...

I don't think the declining number of the male population on Earth is an issue to be worried about. There is a balance in nature. I remember I've read some time ago that in times of a war, there are more male babies born. Now that the largest part of the world lives in peace could be one of the reasons more females are born.
