​New international research led by Hebrew U shows says that change over the last 40 years has been ‘steep and significant’
The concentration of sperm among men in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand has dropped by more than half in less than four decades, according to the first systematic review and meta-analysis of trends in male fertility.
“These are dramatic and shocking results that involve not only reduced male fertility but also reflect danger to the health of males,” says chief researcher Dr. Hagai Levine, head of the environmental health track at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem-Hadassah Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine
