French Men’s Sperm Production Down
The verdict is out……!
Recent studies shown that French men are not what they used to be, in terms of their sperm counts.
The research shown that over the last two decades, there had been a drastic drop in the sperm counts of French men, a decreased of approximately 32%
This research had sparked media attention, as the researchers points out that if the rate of decrease is ongoing, very soon, many French men’s sperm count will get into the infertile range.
However, are Malaysian men facing the same fate?
A quote from the media pointed that: “A decline in male reproduction endpoints has been suspected for several decades and is still debated all around the world. Geographical differences have been observed between countries, and between areas inside countries,” said Joëlle Le Moal from the Institut de Veille Sanitaire in France, who led the study.
Recent publications from Israel, India, New Zealand and Tunisia also revealed similar results
It is estimated that over the last two decades, there was about a 2 percent annual decrease in the number of sperm in one milliliter of the average man’s semen.
It is therefore not surprising to see that there had been an increasing number of couples seeking fertility treatment because of sperm issues.
