Male Hypofertility

The collapse in male fertility rates has reached dramatic proportions in recent years. Specialists are alarmed by the risk to male fertility constituted by environmental factors and the danger that birth rates may collapse in the near future. Over the last forty years male sperm counts in the West have dropped by 50% and the World Health Organisation has had to modify its reference parameters for laboratories as compared with the past! The Italian Health Department has highlighted that one couple in five struggles to procreate naturally, twice as many as 20 years ago, and that causes of infertility (apart from strictly couple related causes) relate to men and women equally.
