New study by Dr Hagay Levin, review about 185 studies that were published between 1971 and  2011, shows that Sperm Quality in in western world is in decline in last 40 years.
The Study was done in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with the Haddasa Hospital, and the Mount Sinai hospital in New York.
The results show a 52.4% decline in sperm concentration and 59.3% decline in total sperm count in men from North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand  While in South America, Asia and Africa, there was no significant decline (much less studies are available on these regions).
The researchers say that low sperm quality have been linked with exposure to chemicals used in pesticides and plastics, obesity, smoking, stress, diet, and even watching too much TV.

Since Dr Hagay Levin do not say any thing about EMF radiation exposure and low sperm quality I will bring several studies that do:
