What do you do if you're watching TV and a doctor comes on the screen and tells you a recent study proves that watching TV lowers your sperm count?
 
Well, do what we do: qualify, qualify, qualify.
 
The study talks about "too much TV" as more than 20 hours a week, and we agree. We'd recommend 7-10 hours max. (That leaves plenty of time to watch "The Dr. Oz Show.") And the study looked at men ages 18-22 who don't watch much TV and exercise for 15 hours a week (an energetic bunch - they're getting in 10,000 steps a day or the equivalent) versus men that age who watch more than 20 hours a week and hardly ever get up off the couch.

Those extreme couch potatoes' sperm were down for the count by 44 percent - and what's left is low quality. (It's always the little ones who suffer the most, isn't it?)
 
Wanna boost sperm quantity and quality? The best bet is to only watch TV while on a treadmill or elliptical machine.

But if you're sitting in a comfy chair viewing TV for more than a couple hours a day, move away from the screen and head for the front door. Now open it and walk outside, even if it's snowing. Shovel the front walk or go to the gym or pool. Not only will you stop diabetes, heart disease, dementia, and depression from taking hold, you'll make your little swimmers happy. And healthy sperm often are partners with a happy intimate relationship.
