Determining the Role of Life Style Factors in Male Reproductive Functions | Chapter 4 | Research Aspects in Agriculture and Veterinary Science Vol. 5

Male and female infertility is becoming more common in many countries and has become a severe concern. Fertility difficulties can be exacerbated by a variety of lifestyle factors and work exposures. Smoking, illicit substance (cocaine, cannabis), alcohol and caffeine usage, and exposure to high heat, among other things, have deleterious impacts on male reproductive system activities. In recent years, there has been an upsurge in male reproductive system diseases, which may be linked to these causes, which are exacerbated by some new emerging lifestyle habits. Excessive usage of mobile phones and the impact of mental stress on male reproductive health necessitate a thorough investigation based on the evidence. The impact of numerous lifestyle factors, environmental pressures, and occupational exposures in male reproductive functions, as well as their negative feedback in diminishing semen quality, increased oxidative stress, and sperm DNA damage, is highlighted in this review. Increased male reproductive disorders may be linked to at least some of these causes, which are compounded by some new emerging lifestyles. Adopting a healthy lifestyle gives subfertile and/or normal people some influence over their reproductive function.
