Men – how to avoid everyday toxins for healthy sperm

Guys- here are some easy ways to reduce the effects of some common toxin exposures.

Basically, men should:

  • Reduce or eliminate SSRI antidepressants
  • Eliminate exposure to BPA (receipts, canned food liners, plastics)
  • Reduce or eliminate exposure to Phtalates – change soaps, replace vinyl shower liner, and other sources)
  • Eat organic produce to eliminate sperm-killing pesticide residues
  • In the winter season, avoid using heated car seats.  Sperm production works best when the scrotum is at a lower temperature than the rest of the body.
  • Eat wild-sourced salmon, to avoid PCBs.  Check out Seafood Watch and MN Dept of Health’s info on safe fish consumption for more information.
