Is it true to drink coke and kill sperm? The truth is incredible
4hw.org: the myth of drinking coke to kill sperm has been circulating for more than decades. The legend originated from an experiment, which put sperm into coke to observe its vitality, and found that sperm vitality was greatly reduced, so we came to the conclusion that coke killed sperm. Is it true?
Correct solution: Cola has nothing to do with sperm, and after the sperm is ejaculated, let alone put it in cola coffee, even if it is put in the air, it will not last for half an hour!
Now, from a scientific point of view, this experiment and conclusion are actually flawed. Coke is used for drinking. It must enter the digestive system first, and has nothing to do with the reproductive system. Any beverage is first to the stomach for digestion and absorption, and then the blood will transfer the nutrients to all parts of the body. The situation of colas insemination will not happen in the human body.
From 2001 to 2006, Danish doctor Tina Kold Jensen investigated the sperm quality and caffeine intake of 2554 young men. The results showed that drinking coffee (less than 800 mg caffeine) and coke (two 500 ml bottles per day) did not affect the number, vitality and morphology of sperm. Do you really drink at least two bottles of coke and at least seven cups of coffee every day? If not, you don't need to worry too much about the rumors about whether coffee and coke kill sperm.
For a very small number (3%) of young people who drink a large amount of coke or caffeine, some of them do have problems with sperm quality. According to Dr. Jason, these people not only drink more coke, but also have other unhealthy eating habits. In other words, drinking 'massive' coke is just one aspect of bad eating habits. As a result, there is no evidence that drinking large amounts of coke can cause sperm quality to decline. It should be noted that despite the huge consumption of coke, the total number of sperm dropped by 30%, still within the range of the normal total number of sperm given by the World Health Organization.
