Running seems to require a greater amount of high-level thinking than most of us might imagine. The sport seems to change how the brain works in surprising ways, according to a new report
Let’s talk about superfoods! Over recent years, the world has become obsessed with superfoods. Goji berries, cacao beans, green tea, you name it, we’ve found it...But what actually makes a superfood, super? And how can these foods help your chances of conception. Well, first of all, superfoods earn their ‘super’ title because of their impressively high levels of nutrients and vitamins in comparison to more mundane foods like pasta or rice. This is what gives them their ‘power’, as it were. A multitude of studies has shown that highly dosed nutrients have potentially significant impact on overall sperm quality. Below...
We worked with fertility doctors and the UK’s Channel4 to test the cooling power of Snowballs against boxers and regular briefs. Three men spent a day wearing each type of underwear, and then an infrared thermometer was aimed at their hot zones.
Greg ordered a set of our cooling underwear two years ago, hoping to enhance his production of testosterone. He took a scientific approach to the challenge and began tracking his testosterone with blood tests. And over the next year, he saw astonishing results. His testosterone increased even more than we imagined possible.
Certain lifestyle factors are linked to higher rates of damage in the genetic material in men’s sperm, a study suggests.
Indian women continue to suffer in absence of a specialised centre to treat male infertility as most fertility clinics are gynaecology driven.
Over the past few years, I have come across several cases where couples come to me for treatment related to infertility and other problems in their marital life. It is always easy to hold the woman responsible for fertility and if there is something wrong, the first thought goes in the direction of the woman involved. Is her health fine? Is her system supporting conception and child birth?
For decades this Philadelphia physician lived a life inside his head, rarely expressing himself with his heart. He says his inability to open up wasn’t good for his first marriage, or his second.
Researchers studying reproductive science identified a network of proteins often linked to cancer as also important to male fertility and the birth of healthy offspring, according to a study in the Oct. 18 online issue of Cell Reports.
Men are less likely to go and see their doctor than a woman. It’s a well known fact. Men tend to brush over health problems or symptoms they may be suffering from due to their nature. They tend to just get on with things and carry on. But this is where some health problems then go unnoticed, especially as a man get’s older. Which is why sometimes when you spot the signs of some of the top risks of male health you must get seen to straight away. Which is why I thought it was important to highlight some of the health risks many men face as they get older.
Last summer, high school junior William Trinh landed a coveted internship funded by the National Institutes of Health. He showed up at the University of Washington expecting to spend a couple of months peering into a microscope, but that wasn’t the kind of help his lab needed. The research team, under Dr. William Bremner, was working on birth control for men, and what they needed most was help figuring out whether the time was right for this project, and if so how best to talk about it. Could Trinh, a soft-spoken first-generation Vietnamese American, ask his buddies what they thought?
There’s a common misconception that fertility is a woman’s issue, but the fact is men are as crucial to conception as they are to the inability to conceive. According to statistics from the Government of Canada, three out of 10 cases of infertility are due to problems deriving from the man, while most fertility doctors say that up to one-third of their practice is exclusively made up of men experiencing fertility issues.
