Molecular signatures reveal why it’s so important to have a healthy sex life

A trio of New York University scientists has devised a way to analyze certain crucial molecular signals following a sexually-linked DNA damage, for years researchers have sought to understand why 100 percent of men lost their sperm in the attempt to conceive.
A team previously found that a certain shape — slight asymmetric – was the critical factor that caused sperm to be lost in 63 percent of men.
“This means that there must be intervention at all levels to ensure increased male fertility in this population,” Schmitz said.
Some of the findings were surprising, Schmitz said.
Though improved access to infertility counseling is already possible through technological supports, there’s currently no advertising for this that can be used after establishing the basic knowledge.
