As well as common unhealthy habits (such as smoking, excessive drinking, unhealthy eating and lack of physical activity), which have a negative impact on the general health of a man, as well as on his spermatozoa, there are certain seemingly harmless habits, which, however, are just as bad for spermatozoa.
1. One of the most common habits not only for men but also for women who use a laptop is to keep it on top of their lap J Placed there, the laptop emits heat which raises the temperature of the testes. The optimal temperature for spermatogenesis is about 2 degrees Celsius below the temperature of the body. That is why the testicles are outside the body cavity. Therefore, all lifestyle habits resulting in heating up of the scrotal area (things like hot baths, wearing tight underwear/pants, etc.) should be avoided by men.
2.An excellent source of proteins for vegetarians, soy is known to mimic estrogen in the body because of the presence of isoflavons in it. It is believed to increase the production of the female hormone in the body, thereby reducing the male hormone. A study by Harvard School of Public Health revealed that sperm production was affected by even half a serving of soy in a day. Better cut down on that soy milk.
3.Sunscreen contains chemicals like BP-2 or 3OH-BP which can interfere with hormones in men.Always make sure to wash off all the sunscreen when indoors. Leaving it on forever will only make your skin unnecessarily absorb all the chemicals.
