Has Sperm Count Dropped that much in the last 50 years?

According to an updated study of medical literature, human sperm counts appear to have decreased globally over the past 50 years by more than 50%. The discoveries could have significant consequences for human reproduction if the reduction persists and the findings are validated. Since semen quality can be a significant indicator of general health, researchers think it would also be a sign of men's overall health declining. The review and its findings have sparked discussion among male fertility specialists. Some claim the findings are accurate and urgent, but others claim the data does not convince them because it is impossible to compare historical and contemporary counts because sperm counting techniques have changed so much over time. Nearly all experts agree that the issue needs more study. “I think one of the fundamental functions of any species is reproduction. So I think if there is a signal that reproduction is in decline, I think that’s a very important finding, ” said Dr

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

Can Turmeric be used as treatment for Cholesterol-caused complications?

  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. LDL cholesterol, also known as "bad" cholesterol, can accumulate in the arteries and narrow them. A person's ch

  Manchester City Women will no longer wear white shorts as part of their home kit to help players "perform at their highest level" while on their periods.

"As a result of player feedback and the underlying topic of women wanting to move away from wearing white shorts while on their periods, we have decided to implement changes to the


Our attitudes toward relationships were influenced in one way or another as children by the films and novels we watched and read. They still have the ability to shape our thinking even as adults even though we aren't aware of it. In essence, entertainment isn't always just amusement as we sometimes assume. It may sound silly, but some individuals build their entire expectations for relationships on a fictional world created by what they observe on television. You need to mature if you want the outcomes in your romantic life that you truly desire. Your unreasonable expectations may be a contributing factor in the failure of your relationships, and in this article, we'll discuss how to spot the warning signals that you've been searching for a type of love that doesn't exist. Finding "the one" has become your obsession. It's possible that you really do have that one individual in the entire universe who is made particularly for you. However, this notion i

This is after The Nairobi West Hospital started providing the services, with the first patient undergoing the procedure. It is the first hospital to provide the service. The 55-year-old patient, with multiple myeloma, underwent the procedure on the 10th of October, 2022, and is expected to be discharged in two days.

"We are going to collaborate with insurance companies, and we are already in a

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. It is the most consumed meal in primary and high school as the majority of schools offer it for lunch to their students. 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

I Have Been Character Developed

In playwriting, character development refers to the process of coming up with a unique, three-dimensional character that has depth, personality, and clear motivations. Furthermore, Character development can also mean the changes an individual or character has gone through, throughout a story, resulting from their actions and experiences. However, the latter definition is what comes close to what the phrase, Character Development, refers to along the busy streets of Nairobi, Kenya. It is much revered amongst the population of the city of cool waters. You'd often hear young men and women refer to it in their relationship stories. 'I got proper character development from them...' one would say as they narrate their ordeals, hence begs the question, what is Character Development? I talked to several random strangers on the streets of Nairobi, and mark you the phrase elicited several meanings but all revolving around one topic, relationship trauma.  A majority of people have be
