Sperm trying to fertilise an egg – it’s a battle where only the strongest will succeed. It’s been suggested that the 21st century man is, reproductively speaking, only half the man his grandfather was! Cell phones, laptops, tight underwear, drinking too much alcohol, prescription drugs and even chemicals in the food we eat have all been implicated in studies suggesting that male fertility rates are dropping. But just how much of this are we to believe? Could modern living really be threatening the survival of our species? By understanding more about sperm we can give them a fighting chance. Sperm Wars is an entertaining guide to all that is good, bad and deadly for sperm.
