News24xx.com - Recently, a study that conducted in Hong Kong undertook a study about the levels of air pollution from vehicle related to male fertility.

Research conducted by The Chinese University of Hong Kong concluded that men living in areas with high levels of air pollution will have a defective or abnormal sperm size and shape.

The researchers took samples from 6,500 respondents from Taiwan with age range from 15 until 49 years and compared data with 2.5 PM exposure on respondents' homes for two years. PM 2.5 is a fine particle that contained in diesel engine emissions from old cars.

These particles can be inhale accidentally and enter the lungs, including into the bloodstream, and causing respiratory problems.

The results of this study indicate if the higher the exposure to air pollution, causing a higher decrease in size and shape of sperm than respondents.

Reported by the Daily Mail, respondents exposed to high pollution risk 26% having the size and shape of sperm with the lowest quality.
This condition is considered the researchers could risk the increase of infertility or sterility that occurs in men.

Men's fertility expert from the University of Sheffield, Prof. Allan Pacey said, the form of sperm does not significantly affect a person's fertility. Therefore it should be investigated further related to how much exposure to the pollution.

"Yes there may be a negative effect but we must find out first how much exposure to pollution to affect male fertility," said Prof. Allan Pacey.

"Although the effect is thought to be small, but it is a health challenge that can not be ignored," said Prof. Allan Pacey.
