As i know from some french studies of fertility and drugs:

- big smokers loose 15.2% of spermatozoid concentration
- big eaters (more that 25kg/m² fat indice) loose 25% of number ejaculated spermatozoids
- exposed to chemistry loose 28-38% of number ejaculated spermatozoids
- alcoholics loose 62% of spermatozoid concentration

Also in france evolution of concentration of spermatozoids shooting down:
1989 - 74 millions/ml (with 62% of normal spermatozoids)
1992 - 62 (with 56%)
1995 - 58 (with 53%)
1998 - 55 (with 53%)
2001 - 55 (with 50%)
2005 - 51 millions/ml (with 41% of normal spermatozoids)

I suppose that there is the case with other "developped" countries.

That will discourage some kids, but lets hope they will not see it as a birth control method. :D

The other thing affecting a chap's ability to produce viable sperm is the sheer quantity of oestrogen to be found in our food andwater systems...
