  • Cigarette smoke contains chemicals which are capable of inducing aneuploidy in experimental systems. These chemicals have been shown to reach the male reproductive system, increasing oxidative DNA damage in human sperm and lowering semen quality. We have examined the association between smoking and aneuploid sperm by studying 31 Chinese men with similar demographic characteristics and lifestyle factors except for cigarette smoking. None of the men drank alcohol. These men were divided into… CONTINUE READING
