Sperm count is declining according to a recent analysis. The results show a 52% decline in sperm concentration, with a 59% decline in total sperm count over a 40 year period that ended in 2011 according to data published in the journal Human Reproduction.
The study looked at over 42,935 male participants who provided semen samples between 1973 and 2011. The chosen studies were well distributed over the 40 year study period, amongst 50 different countries.
The Main Causes of Male Infertility
Low sperm count is one factor that causes infertility, another is medical complications. Any kind of testicular, prostate or sexual dysfunction can create problems that affect the fertility in men.
Other areas that may cause male infertility include cancer and undergoing cancer treatment like radiation and chemotherapy as these can hinder or even kill sperm production.
Exposure to high temperatures such as being in a sauna, hot tub or even using a laptop can all destroy sperm. Hormonal imbalance can also be caused by excess alcohol use, eating soy foods and high levels of stress.
Impotence or the inability to have an erection (erectile dysfunction) may also be caused by injury or disease that damages blood vessels or nerves that signal blood flow to the penis. Examples may include atherosclerosis, diabetes, spinal cord injury, surgery and even some psychological factors.
Retrograde ejaculation is when semen discharges through the urethra. when semen discharges through the bladder. This condition results in a “dry orgasm” and has been linked to diabetes, surgery and certain kinds of prescription drugs, even those that are used to treat hypertension.
Excess infections of the male reproductive organs are often caused by sexually transmitted disease and these are considered to be a main cause of male infertility. Infections can often easily go untreated and this causes blockages, scarring and potential damage to reproductive organs.
Along with leaving it until later in life to have a child, other factors that cause declining sperm rates and infertility include eating nutrient-deficient foods, over exercising, smoking, stress, alcohol abuse, excessive caffeine and use of prescription and/or recreational drugs.
Consuming foods high in sugars and carbs can cause blood sugar levels to spike. When these levels are high, this can create inflammation in the body. Inflammation can prevent adequate blood flow to the organs (such as the penis), meaning that an erection isn’t always possible so that the semen and the sperm can be pushed out during an ejaculation.
Another risk to be aware of…
Keeping a cell phone in your pants pocket could also play a risk. In 2014, University of Exeter scientists found that men who keep their cell phone in their pant pocket may be compromising their fertility.
Sperm motility and viability of 1,492 samples was found to have fell by 8 per cent on average, following this mobile phone exposure. Researchers also pointed out that most adults worldwide own a mobile phone, and more high income couples are having trouble conceiving.

To protect yourself…
Quantogram HoloGuard Phone Radiation Harmonizer – Rather than blocking signals, resonates at a healthy, frequency that neutralizes the potentially harmful, positive charge field around a portable wireless (Wi/Fi) device.
This includes mobile phones, DECT/cordless phones, laptops, tablets, portable Wi/Fi Hotspot devices and Wi/Fi modems, which may neutralize the harmful resonant effect on human organs and meridians.
In addition, the HoloGuard Phone Radiation Harmonizer is unique in its ability to potentially provide further electronic EMF protection from the effects of other EMR fields. Available from Good Health Naturally.
