High Sperm Density Among Members of Organic Farmers Association

"In a Danish study of reproductive effects of pesticides in male greenhouse workers, we found an unexpectedly high sperm density in members of an association of organic farmers, who manufacture their products without use of pesticides or chemical fertilisers. This is of interest in the light of evidence that indicates a world-wide decrease trend of sperm density in the general population."
