Causes of the decline in sperm count are unknown

The decline's origins are uncertain. According to the study's authors, they lacked sufficient data from various geographic areas to determine whether sperm counts were generally lower in some nations than in others or whether they were dropping more quickly in particular places. 53 countries' worth of data were examined. The authors also skipped over any potential causes of the drop. Levine suggested that it should be researched. Levine claims that he and others have identified a few factors in other studies that are linked to reduced sperm counts. The womb is where reproductive health problems may start. “We know that stress of the mother, maternal smoking and especially exposure to manmade chemicals that are in plastic, such as phthalates, disrupt the development of the male reproductive system,Lifestyle may also play an important role. Obesity, a lack of physical activity and diets high in ultra-processed food may all be culprits.  The same factors that harm health in ge

Qatari Authorities Ban Sale of Alcohol in Stadiums

Following last-minute negotiations, World Cup organizers in Qatar have prohibited the selling of alcohol near stadiums, FIFA reported on Friday. FIFA and Qatari organizers were involved in late negotiations over whether beer will be offered at the stadiums during the tournament, which starts on Sunday. FIFA said in a statement: "Following discussions between host country authorities and FIFA, a decision has been made to focus the sale of alcoholic beverages on the FIFA Fan Festival, other fan destinations and licensed venues, removing the sales points of beer from Qatar's FIFA World Cup 2022 stadium perimeters."

At first glance, it seems as though FIFA and sponsors Budweiser reached an understanding to allow alcohol sales at the stadiums. After The New York Times first stated that the beer tents would be less n

  People use turmeric in traditional medicine to treat a variety of ailments. It is a common element in many cuisines. According to research, it might be a secure and convenient technique to assist in lowering cholesterol and lowering the risk of heart-related illnesses. The root of the Curcuma longa plant, a perennial member of the ginger family, is where turmeric, also known as the "golden spice," is derived. Its peppery flavor, unique aromatic perfume, and bright yellow hue make it a familiar spice and a key component of curry powder. Numerous studies have looked at how turmeric and curcumin affect several biological components, including cholesterol. A waxy molecule called cholesterol is consumed from several animal meals and is generated by the liver. The "good" cholesterol known as high-density lipoprotein (HDL) may aid in heart health.

How Do You Like Your Githeri?

Githeri is a common household meal enjoyed by a majority of families across Kenya. Its main ingredients are maize and beans. It is what most of us grew up eating as lunch and sometimes supper.

Its nutritional value goes without saying as maize offers a carbohydrate component that provides energy to get through the day, while the beans offer a much-needed protein component responsible for muscle growth. In addition, it is easy to prepare as the component ingredients are boiled together till soft. From this point, it's a matter of individual preference on how to 'dress' the meal. My own grandfather liked it boiled with a little salt to give it a taste. My siblings enjoy it fried with tomatoes, onions, capsicum, and some potatoes tossed in.  However, for me, I enjoy my Githeri with avocado on the side. Here is how I prepare this sumptuous meal in under 30 mi
