Housecall for Health: Too Much TV Lowers Sperm Count

Housecall for Health

A warning for men: There’s yet another reason why you shouldn’t spend too much time on the couch watching the game, a movie or your favorite TV show.

FOX’s Colleen Cappon has details in today’s “Housecall for Health”:

Researchers have found another factor that affects sperm count: Watching too much TV.  The Harvard study analyzed nearly 200 young adult males.  Results showed men who watched more than 20 hours of TV a week had sperm counts that were 44% lower than men who didn’t watch television.

Scientists says participants who exercised regularly had higher counts, so the reason likely has to do with leading a sedentary lifestyle.
