Too much TV significantly lowers sperm count

(February 8, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Boston – Too much TV may significantly reduce a man’s sperm count, according to a report published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. Researchers studied nearly 200 men between 18-22 years old. Participants were asked about their levels of physical activity and TV-watching habits, as well as other factors such as diet, smoking and levels of stress. Results of semen analysis revealed that men who watched over 20 hours of TV a week had a 44% lower sperm count than men who watched almost no TV at all. In contrast, men who exercised for 15 or more hours a week had a 73% higher sperm count than men who exercised less than 5 hours a week.
