BACKGROUND Evidence on human semen quality as it relates to exposure to various metals, both essential (e.g., zinc, copper) and nonessential (e.g., cadmium, lead), is inconsistent. Most studies to date used small sample sizes and were unable to account for important covariates. OBJECTIVES Our goal in this study was to assess relationships between exposure to multiple metals at environmental levels and human semen-quality parameters. METHODS We measured semen quality and metals in blood… CONTINUE READING
