Sea­sons for good sperm

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - BRIAN READE -

SPERM qual­ity is lower in sum­mer and win­ter due to boozy bar­bies and fes­tive feast­ing, a study found.

Ex­perts who stud­ied 29,000 sam­ples across the sea­sons think sum­mer has fewer “swim­mers” be­cause tes­ti­cles over­heat.

Dr Taraneh Nazem, from Ic­ahn School of Medicine at Mount Si­nai, New York, said: “Maybe au­tumn and spring are more bal­anced.

“The tem­per­a­tures are more mild and peo­ple are more phys­i­cally ac­tive than in the win­ter.”
