A new study out of the University of Utah looking at the incidence of common forms of cancer in males found that subfertile men- those who have undergone semen analysis (SA) as part of an examination for fertility- are at greater risk of developing testicular cancer than fertile men, and that the risk varies depending on which semen quality parameters are deficient. In contrast to previous studies on sperm quality and cancer risk, they found no increased cancer risk in men with azoospermia, a complete absence of sperm in the ejaculate.

Boston researchers have found that, among infertility patients having IVF, men’s poultry intake is related to better fertilization rates in IVF cycles with and without intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). However, men’s consumption of processed meat, like bacon, canned meat products, and sausages, was related to poorer fertilization rates in IVF. Processed meat intake had no effect on fertilization in cycles using ICSI.
