Vitamin C and Fertility.We all know now that eating healthy and taking supplements with all micro-nutrients are important for proper fertility. However, keeping things in balance is important. Especially with vitamin C for both parents. Some vitamin C in moderate doses can help with fertility as it improves cervical fluid for better sperm transportation and keeps sperm alive longer in the uterus. But too much vitamin C may dry up the cervical fluids 😦 so be careful if trying to get pregnant during the winter when many take mega doses of C to prevent colds and flues. Even for men vitamin C matters as it protects the DNA of sperm (hint: better fertility from better sperm count, mobility & having a healthier baby).  DNA damage may cause miscarriage and chromosomal damage to baby. Optimal doses range around 500 and no more than 1,000 mg a day if trying to get pregnant.

A Mans Laptop Usage can Cook his Scrotum.. New research published in the medial journal Fertility and Sterility (Nov 2010) reveals that laptop computers can roast a man’s testicles to the point where sperm production (and quality) starts to drop. As little as 10-15 minutes of keeping a laptop on the lap, can heat up the testicles enough to cause lowered sperm production and motility. See more info at Natural News.

Painkillers lead to male infertility.
Common painkillers such as Aspirin and Ibuprofen (Advil) has been found by scientist in France, Denmark and Finland to disrupt proper hormone function in humans more so than exposure to the 10 top prevalent ones currently known (Phthalates, BPA’s etc…). The Human Reproduction Journal says a pregnant woman who takes only ONE tablet in 2nd trimester double her boys chance of Cryptorchidism (testicles don’t descend to to testosterone deficiency). If she takes more than ONE pill the risk goes up 1,600%! Guardian
“The Modern World seems to be a minefield of assault against the male reproductive system.” – Mike Adams Natural News
No results have been found on possible effects on unborn girls yet. But there is no reason why that wouldn’t be the case. As well men need to think about avoiding painkillers before conceiving a child.
