Marijuana use affects sperm

Marijuana is legal in a lot of places nowadays and is becoming very widely used... But it does seem to have an effect on fertility.

Check out this news article on the study. Here's an overview:

"Young men who use cannabis may be putting their fertility at risk by inadvertently affecting the size and shape of their sperm, according to new research. In the world's largest study to investigate how common lifestyle factors influence the size and shape of sperm, a research team found that sperm size and shape was worse in samples ejaculated in the summer months, but was better in men who had abstained from sexual activity for more than six days."

What do you think? Would you risk it?

In this house, I'm not sure if I would or not. I'd have to weigh the costs and benefits of the usage.

      Lol, absolutely. I wonder what the implications will be for fertility in this country now that marijuana is being legalized lots of places, plus the epigenetic effects of methoxychlor already making their rounds.

      We will see, I s'pose.
