Soyfoods Do Not Impact Sperm Count
Date:7/24/2008

intake produced more ejaculate fluid volume with equivalent amounts of sperm count as those with lower intakes, neither the volume or the number of sperm was significantly different, however this larger volume lead to the lower sperm concentrations (millions per millimeter) in the higher intake individuals. This watering-down effect of sperm concentration should not be mistakenly associated with a decrease in fertility.

Obesity may be the explanation for the negative findings of this study. Dr. Chavarro found high soyfood intakes are associated with lower sperm concentration but "the association was more pronounced among overweight and obese men than among lean men." Men with high levels of body fat are likely to produce more estrogen than their slimmer counterparts.

Chavarro's study conflicts with the large body of U.S. government and National Institute of Health-sponsored human and primate research, in which controlled amounts of isoflavones from soy were fed and no effect on quantity, quality or motility of sperm were observed. Upon hearing of Chavarro's findings, Dr. Stephen Barnes, a pharmacologist at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, noted, "This study is the first to find this correlation. The research on soy in men has not found a negative impact on male hormones but rather has suggested a preventive effect in prostate cancer."
