Too Much TV Can Drop Sperm Count
(KUTV) Too much time in front of the TV may be reducing your fertility.
A Harvard University study suggests lower sperm count could be linked to television watching habits.
The study supports other research that finds reduced physical activity can be harmful to sperm production.
Scientists asked 189 volunteers questions about how much they exercise -- and how often they watch TV.
Volunteers who said they exercise 15 hours or more per week had much higher sperm concentration.
By contrast, those who watched more than 20 hours of TV had just half as many sperm cells as those who watch no TV.
