Watching too much television can diminish sperm count

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

A new study finds that men who spend too much time in front of the television may be less fertile.

Scientists at Harvard found men who watched more than 20 hours a week had half the sperm count as men who didn't watch any TV.

Researchers determined the reason may be because heavy TV viewers tend to be less physically active.

Volunteers who said they worked out 15 hours or more per week had much higher sperm count than those who didn't.
