Arrivederci, Normal Sperm

Cab drivers who sit in traffic at risk?

(HealthDayNews) -- It's only a study, but be warned: If you're a male, prolonged driving in city traffic may be hazardous to your reproductive health.

The American Journal of Industrial Medicine reports that a study of 201 taxi drivers in the city of Rome, Italy, found 54.2 percent of the subjects had more abnormal sperm than normal sperm.

In a control group, only 36 percent of men in other occupations had a significant level of abnormal sperm. The researchers concluded that the abnormal count was caused by spending long hours driving in traffic.
