The recent decline in sperm concentration observed in men has developed over a short period of time, suggesting that it could be the result of environmental factors. The present study has evaluated the effects of insecticides Malathion and Diazinon, and herbicides Atrazine and Fenoxaprop-Ethyl on porcine sperm viability and motility patterns in vitro using the eosin-nigrosin staining and a computer-assisted semen analyzer (CASA), respectively. Malathion and Fenoxaprop-Ethyl exerted more… CONTINUE READING
