Declining human fertility
The sperm count would have dropped more than 52% in just half a decade ... Alarming isn't it? But why!
When we talk about fertility, we immediately think of the role of women in the conception phase, but we often forget that the role of men is just as important for the health of the future child.
Have you ever heard of epigenetic? It is a growing subject, which scientists are more and more fond of and which gives reason to the globalist method of naturopaths. When we talk about epigenetic, we're talking about the environment, we're talking about the influence of the environment on the expression of our genes, our genetics. Genetics is therefore not the only factor to consider when talking about health, here fertility, it must be seen as a whole.
Here are some factors to consider in promoting male fertility and you will find that there are some issues that will affect the fertile health of women as well.
Heat and testicles
Let’s talk about underwear material that doesn’t breathe, overly tight boxers, which increases the temperature of the testicles and thus decreases the quality of sperm. Let us approach the subject of sitting too long and also, laptops on the pelvic region and which maintain a constant heat not favorable to the healthy development of the sperm. Or, baths and showers that are too hot and too long ... These are all factors that should not be underestimated that can have a real impact on fertility.
Food and waist
Being overweight influences the production of hormones needed to make sperm. Food is supposed to provide essential nutrients for gonadal health, but nowadays it's easy to eat a little too much, a little too much sugar, a little too much fat and processed foods. A plate rich in antioxidant improves the movements of sperm and also their qualities (shape and strength).
The most important nutrients for male fertility: Omega-3, Zinc, Coenzyme Q10, Selenium, Carnitine, Vitamin C, Vitamin E ...
Unrestrained pace of life
When we are in times of stress, our priority is not to reproduce, but to combat the threat that lies before us. The primitive reactions of our body have not changed much over time, our organism cannot tell the difference between a demanding employer and a threatening mammoth. You have to be available to make a child, you have to be willing to conceive and welcome him into this world ...
No baby smoke
If there aren't enough reasons to quit already, here's another one. Smoke directly influences the quality of sperm by reducing their quantity, their motility and deforming them, which makes them less strong to succeed in the great quest for the fertilizable egg.
Even that smoking would also influence the fertility of the partner! Studies have shown that second-hand smoke increases the risk of miscarriage.
If you are having trouble conceiving, take a moment to think about your job and whether it can affect your fertility. Painters, varnishers, farmers, welders or even metallurgical workers are more at risk of having low quality sperm. Our body is in constant relation with the environment, we inspire and absorb multiple molecules that our organism must transform and eliminate ... But in addition, it will sometimes go to store them.
The goal is not to change jobs, but to become aware of them and compensate in other places by promoting healthy lifestyles. Perhaps wearing gloves or a mask could be a possible option in the future to promote fertile ground.
