Sperm counts are down by 50 percent since the 1970s and The Doctors explain the possible reasons behind the global sperm slump.
If the current slump continues, experts warn that half of the men in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and North America will have not any sperm by the year 2045. In addition to slower sperm counts, men are experiencing more issues conceiving and instances of erectile dysfunction, while testosterone levels are decreasing.
And the reason for the dropping sperm counts? The Doctors explain these lifestyle choices can have a negative impact:
- Drinking too much alcohol
- Vigorous exercise that creates pressure on the testicles like bike riding - The Doctors encourage men to continue riding their bikes but to wear workout clothes that provides padding in the crotch
- Eating too many processed foods - "If it can come in a box, it's probably not that good for you," Dr. Ish Majors warns.
The panel also notes environmental factors like vinyl shower curtains, binge-watching for too long on the couch, sleeping on a foam mattress, and using spray air fresheners can potentially affect sperm count.
