This Specific Type Of Exercise Improves Men's Fertility

If you’re a man who spends a little more time on the couch than you want to admit, and you’re planning to start trying for a baby soon, here’s some advice: Exercise could significantly improve the quality of your sperm.  Specifically, moderate steady state cardio like jogging could improve your sperm’s speed, shape and volume, according to a new study published in the journal Reproduction.  How different exercises affected the quality of men’s sperm  A six-month study among 261 previously sedentary men in Iran found that those who were randomly assigned to start exercising on a treadmill improved the quality of their sperm in terms of volume, sperm count, motility and morphology (shape and size). All the men in the study were assigned to do either moderate intensity continuous training (running at moderate speed for 30 to 45 minutes, three to six days a week), high-intensity continuous exercise (running vigorously for one hour on the treadmill, three days a week), high intensity interval training (alternating minutes of sprints and walks for 20 to 30 minutes) or no exercise at all.  All exercising groups significantly decreased their weight, body fat percentage and waist circumference. But men who had been assigned to do moderate intensity continuous training managed to improve their sperm quality the most, and also enjoyed the exercise’s effects longest.  “Our results show that doing exercise can be a si...

(Elsevier) A change in breakfast routine may provide benefits for the management of type 2 diabetes, according to a new study published in the Journal of Dairy Science. A team of scientists found that milk consumed with breakfast cereal reduced postprandial blood glucose concentration compared with water, and high dairy protein concentration reduced postprandial blood glucose concentration compared with normal dairy protein concentration. The high-protein treatment also reduced appetite after the second meal compared with the low-protein equivalent.

The placebo can be extremely powerful in medicine.Unfortunately, this is a therapeutic tool which many doctors look down upon , because they're only interested in prescribing biologically active medicines which have been proven to be therapeutically effective. But the fact is that the mind has an important role to play in healing, and I'm sure this must be equally true in IVF treatment.While there is no proven connection between stress levels and pregnancy rates, it makes sense to minimize stress levels for the patient , even though we don ’t know if this will actually improve pregnancy rates.Thus, all IVF clinics ha...

In this study, twelve test cases were presented and by applying lazy snapping algorithm, the hottest or coldest regions were extracted from the corresponding body thermographic images. The time taken to see the results varied from 7 to 30  s for these twelve cases. It was concluded that lazy snapping was much faster than other methods applied by the authors such asK-means, fuzzyc-means, level set, and mean shift algorithms for segmentation.Graphical abstractTime taken to implement lazy snapping algorithm to extract suspicious regions in different presented thermograms (in seconds). In this study, ten test cases are pr...
