I believe the book was published in the 90s. Plot of the book was astronauts were in space asleep and then returned to earth in the distant future where humans were primordial caveman like. I think a food additive that was being used slowly caused people to become sterile and that's is what cause the decline. Not sure though as it was a long time since I had read it. Please help it has been bugging me for a few years not trying to remember.
