Air pollution is linked with fertility.

Air pollution is associated with fertility and here is how.

A study from Taiwan found that higher pollution may decrease the shape and size of sperm. The team of researchers examined the sperm of 6,475 men over the course of 13 years. They discovered that for every 5ug/m3 increase in tiny air particles (PM2.5s), the risk of being in the bottom 10% of normal sperm size and shape was increased by 26%.
