Watch TV Over 20 Hours Per Week Will Decrease Sperm Quantity

Men, what do you do in your spare time? If you spend much time watching television, you should begin to reduce this habit. For a study of male sperm called reduced if watching television more than 20 hours every week.

In a study conducted by U.S. researchers, 189 young men aged 18-22 years were asked involved. They got a question about exercise and diet undertaken, and the habit of watching television. They were also asked to provide a sperm sample.

The study found the men who watched TV for 20 hours or more per week had sperm counts 44 percent lower than men less time in front of television or who did not watch TV. It is well known men who exercise 15 hours or more per week, with moderate to heavy levels of exercise, on average, have a 73 percent higher sperm count than men who exercised less than 5 hours per week.

The research was published online in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, as quoted by AFP on Tuesday (02/05/2013).

The bad news in the 'world of sperm' is the quality of cement that seems to have decreased over the past few decades. It was the result of a study conducted in several countries.

Not known for sure why semen quality decreases. But scientists suspect that sedentary lifestyle or less active in making semen quality decreases. Because exercise can stimulate the production of hormones, such as testosterone, which is necessary in order to obtain seminal fluid and sperm cells healthy. Besides stress in men can also drastically cut the amount of sperm by inhibiting the production of testosterone.

Department of Preventative Medicine and Public Health, University of Murcia, Spain is also doing research on sperm. The results obtained are spermatozoid concentration decreased an average of two percent per year. Spermatozoid concentration of less than 40 million / ml is known to reduce fertility and difficulty of an egg.

Alberto Torres Cantero, lead researcher in the study believe that the trend is associated with an increasingly unhealthy diet plus high stress levels. Moreover, men today are more often exposed to electromagnetic radiation, likes to wear tight clothing, as well as exposure to chemicals that can cause a decrease in sperm count.

In order to get healthy sperm, so men need to do to improve nutrition and lifestyle that is always active.
