Inactivity Leads to Men’s Lower Sperm Count

Inactivity Leads to Men’s Lower Sperm CountA new study claims link between lower sperm count and inactivity in young men.

Yes, if researcher's latest findings are to be believed, then they say that healthy young men, who watch a lot of TV or perform very less of exercise have comparatively lower sperm count than the guys, who watch less television or are involved in more of exercising routine.

Though the study ran was very small to prove any cause-and-effect, it has presented evidences proving the modern lifestyles to be somewhat standing as a contributing factor to possible decline in sperm count in developed countries.

This is a reassurance too for the active guys, who have heard that exercising might decrease their sperm count, says Mr. Jorge Chavarro, a researcher at the Harvard School of Public Health and a co-author of the above study.

The findings were published on Monday in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

"Most of the previous research has focused on endurance athletes," who may be under unusual stresses, Mr. Chavarro said.

He explained that the latest study was run over 189 college men from Rochester, N. Y., all aged from 18 to 22 years and the findings have cleared that men, who watch the television for more than 20 hours a week, have their sperm counts at 44% lower than the ones, who watched none. Also, ones, who exercised had 73% higher sperm count than the other group.
