    Put down the remote: TV can lower sperm count

    We'll let you decide which of these TV titles is the most fitting, but a new Harvard study shows the sperm counts of America’s tube junkies are perhaps being pruned by the likes of “2 Broke Girls,” “The Big Bang Theory,” and, yes, “Bones.”
    That trio of three of top-rated programs are considered some of the leading semen-sapping culprits, reports the Harvard School of Public Health, which found that men who view more than 20 hours of TV shows weekly have a 44 percent lower sperm count when compared to fellas who watch almost no television. Surely, that daylong visual banquet and chip-and-dipapalooza – a.k.a. the Super Bowl – didn’t help matters.
    Twenty-plus hours per week? Who has so much free time they can devote such a fat chunk of their lives to clicker-clutching couch vegging? Apparently, many of us, said Jorge Chavarro, senior author of the study and assistant professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard. “It's not difficult to imagine. That’s about three hours a day,” Chavarro said. “Let’s say somebody comes home from work at 7 and turns on the TV; they only need to watch TV until the evening news and they’ve watched three hours.”

    “The folks that tend to watch more television obviously have lower exercise rates,” he said. "Twenty hours seems to be a pretty high amount of TV. You would have to wonder about (the study subjects’) diet habits, their sleep habits, and all sorts of other things that could enter into their fertility.”
    Say I do watch 20 hours of TV a week (7 days). What if I get the proper exercise and eat well enough while still watching this much TV? Am I a rarity? Or is the article trying to say fat guys who are slobs don't have many swimmers so let's just lump them all into the same category?

    What about internet porn? Is internet porn OK to watch 20 hours a week? That lowers my sperm count too!

    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.
