Researchers Investigate Declining Sperm Counts, Find Chemicals Rampant

sperium 2505952_960_720 300x200Reading Time: 3 minutes Reproductive health is an essential avenue of scientific research. Scientists have been following a troubling trend over the last thirty years—sperm counts have been getting progressively lower among younger men. There are many factors that contribute to declining sperm production—an increase in obesity is one of the more significant culprits. Environmental influences also play a major role. Researchers have been paying increasing attention to the role of chemicals which disrupt hormone production and signaling in recent years—these chemicals are known as Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (or EDCs). Studies Show Sperm Counts Have Dropped Precipitously Past research makes it clear that there...

Testosterone and Fatherhood

father holding up infant daughter 300x300Reading Time: 2 minutes Upon discovering that they are about to become fathers, men often experience a drop in two hormones: testosterone and estradiol. This happens even before their babies are born, according to a new University of Michigan study. Past research has demonstrated that men's hormones change after they become fathers, and there is some evidence that this is a function of a decline after the child's birth. What is unique about the new U-M study is this: it is the first research to show that the decline may begin even earlier, during the transition to fatherhood, said Robin Edelstein, the study's lead...

HGH docs 113 300x200Reading Time: 2 minutes Women who start hormone replacement therapy (HRT) soon after menopause do not show higher cancer incidence within 16 years, according to a Danish study published on Tuesday that fuels scientific discord over the treatment's safety.

Study Examines Link Between Growth Hormones and Osteoporosis

Illuminated skeleton 300x300Reading Time: 2 minutes PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — For women with thinning bones, Growth Hormone Replacement Therapy is a different but possibly effective option for battling osteoporosis. “The idea of growth hormone helping osteoporosis is not new,” says Dr. Michael Farrell, an internist at Allegheny General Hospital. A study from Sweden indicates that women on growth hormone replacement therapy had denser, thicker bones, and therefore had greater protection from fractures. “This study looked at fracture risk, which is what you really care about,” says Dr. Farrell. The study involved 80 women, ages 50 to 70. For 18 months, they got daily shots of either a...

The Importance of Hormonal Balance for Menopause

Blue hormone sign 300x225Reading Time: 7 minutes The Importance of Hormonal Balance for Menopause More than one researcher has described the human body’s hormonal balance as “the dance of life” or, more specifically, “the dance of the hormones.” And this is indeed an apt analogy. Your endocrine system is a delicate balance that is interrelated. When one hormone increases or decreases, it often has a spillover effect on one or more other hormones. And This is Especially True Concerning Menopause The dictionary definition of menopause is “the time of cessation of a woman’s reproductive ability.” Female ovaries slow down and eventually cease the production of hormones once...

The Link Between Testosterone and Tylenol

Tylenol 300x191Reading Time: 3 minutes LONDON (Reuters) -- Taking too much Tylenol during pregnancy could reduce testosterone levels in male babies, according to a new study. This could lead to possible reproductive problems later in life, researchers said. The University of Edinburgh study tested the effect of paracetamol (also known as acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol) on testosterone production in mice that carried grafts of human testicular tissue. These grafts have been shown to mimic how the developing testes grow and function during pregnancy. Scientists gave the mice a typical daily dose of paracetamol over a period of either 24 hours or seven days....

Hormone Therapy May Benefit Some Women’s Hearts

HGH docs 157 300x212Reading Time: 2 minutes Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been proven in countless research studies to relieve the symptoms of hot flashes and mood swings in menopausal women.

The study, which was published in the journal BMJ, investigated a theory called the timing hypothesis. In older women, long past menopause, hormone replacement therapy using both estrogen and progesterone was linked to elevated risk for heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, dementia, and breast cancer.
