Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Men with fertility problems may want to reevaluate what they keep in the pockets of their pants, especially if one of those items is a mobile phone. According to a new study in the Environment International journal, Radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) emitted by mobile phones can reduce sperm mobility and viability. In the study, researchers review data from participants at fertility clinics and research centers....

Impaired fetal growth and exposure to maternal smoking correlated with lower measures of sperm quality Studies over the past 20 years have suggested (though not unequivocally confirmed) that semen quality is in decline, reflected most evidently in falling sperm counts and reduced sperm motility. The explanations have been controversially attributed to environmental factors (such as exposure to toxins) and to male smoking. Now, a new study based on a 20-year follow-up of one of the world's...

Male Fertility Gets Boost From Eating Walnuts

Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) recently discovered that consuming 2.5 ounces of walnuts a day can heighten semen quality in young men. The paper, published in a recent edition of Biology of Reproduction´s Papers-in-Press, included data that showed that 75 grams of walnuts per day could increase sperm motility, vitality, and morphology of men between the ages of 21 and 35. The team of...

The speed at which the calcium concentration in the cell changes controls the swimming behavior of sperm. They can calculate the calcium dynamics and react accordingly. Sperm have only one aim: to find the egg. The egg supports sperm in their quest by emitting attractants that induce changes in the calcium level inside sperm. Calcium ions determine the beating pattern of the sperm tail which enables sperm to steer. Together with colleagues from the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of...

Research could lead to techniques to improve fertilization in humans In new research that could have implications for improving fertilization in humans and other mammals, life scientists studied interactions between individual sperm and eggs in red abalone, an ocean-dwelling snail, and made precise chemical measurements and physical models of these interactions. They are the first scientists to do so. By simulating the natural habitat of the abalone in the laboratory, the scientists were able...

Two in 10 young people in South East Spain have poor sperm density, which involves requiring more time to accomplish fertilization. The most common means of exposure to pesticides is food and other household products According to a study conducted at the University of Granada, combined exposure to organochlorides significantly alters semen quality in young people from South East Spain. Having a low number of spermatozoa taking the levels established by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a...

Antioxidant supplements may benefit couples who have difficulty conceiving naturally, according to a new systematic review published today in The Cochrane Library. The review provides evidence from a small number of trials that suggest the partners of men who take antioxidants are more likely to become pregnant. Male subfertility affects one in 20 men. Chemicals called reactive oxygen species (ROS) are said to cause damage to cells, and in particular sperm cells, which may result in lowered...

Researchers have linked a chemical compound commonly used in the making of plastics to low-sperm counts and other reproductive issues among Chinese factory workers, according to a study published in the latest edition of the journal Fertility and Sterility. The study, which was funded by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and completed at the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, California, analyzed the urine levels of male workers in China. Those...

OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Increasing urine BPA (Bisphenol-A) level was significantly associated with decreased sperm concentration, decreased total sperm count, decreased sperm vitality and decreased sperm motility, according to a Kaiser Permanente study appearing in the journal of Fertility and Sterility. The five-year study recruited 514 workers in factories in China and compared workers who had high urine BPA levels with those with low urine BPA. Men with higher urine...
