Most of you may be addicted to your morning cuppa coffee, but a new study has
revealed that your favorite brew may reduce your ability to father normal
Just three cups a day is thought to damage sperm and lead to failed
pregnancies or birth defects.
"Independent of age, men with substantial daily caffeine consumption have
increased sperm damage," scientists were quoted by the Mirror, as saying.
It offers a possible reason for plummeting fertility levels among British
men, which have fallen 29 per cent in the last decade.
Bradford University and California University studied males with no fertility
problems aged 22- 80.
"Three cups of coffee a day creates damage leading to chromosome
rearrangements in the embryo. This can lead to the death of the embryo and birth
defects," lead author Dr Andrew Wyrobek said. (ANI)
