American men's sperm counts have been cut half in the last 40 years and are continuing on a decline. The Doctors discuss this alarming statistic and share what men can do to keep their sperm healthy.
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra says that some of the ingredients in products we use can affect hormone levels, which is linked to sperm health. She says to avoid products that contain chemicals called parabens, which can be found in products like toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and face wash. She says these can affect the shape of sperm, causing them to not swim as well.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon notes that marijuana, smoking, and alcohol can all act as a hormone disruptor, which can also affect sperm.
One of the best ways to improve your sperm is with exercise. The Doctors say men who exercise 10 hours a week or more have much higher sperm counts than those who do not.
As always, if this is a concern, speak to your doctor about possible lifestyle changes you can undergo to improve your sperm count.
