Sperm count

A recent updated review of medical literature claims that the collective worldwide sperm count has dropped by about half over the last 50 years, with the decline increasing in recent years.

Stanford urologist Dr Michael Eisenberg claims “there is a strong link between a man’s reproductive health and his overall health. So it could also speak to that too, that maybe we’re not as healthy as we once were.”

Some fertility experts dispute the findings – which were compiled using 3,000 studies published between 2014-2020 covering 53 countries – due to different methods of sperm counting over the last few decades.
