Male reproductive health starts from daily
Henan Daily Health Edition October 26, 2009
October 28th is Men’s Health Day. At present, men's health is receiving increasing attention from society. An investigation showed that the declining health of men has become a severe reality, and physical and psychological pressure threatens men's physical and mental health. A recent survey by the World Health Organization (WHO) shows that the incidence of male diseases in China is as high as 51%. Obviously, China has become an area with a high incidence of andrological diseases.
Men are known to be carefree and informal, but in life, it is these habits that are the hidden thunder of male reproductive health. Experts give the following advice to men in daily clothing, food, washing, housing, transportation, and sex.
Clothing-no tights, no chemical fiber underwear
Tights compress the male reproductive organs and fix the scrotum close to the abdominal cavity. The temperature adjustment function of the scrotum will be restricted and the normal development of the testicles will be affected.
Chemical fiber underwear has poor air permeability and poor heat dissipation, leaving the scrotum in a closed state, air is not circulating, bacteria are easy to multiply, and cause urethritis and prostatitis.
Food-no alcohol, no partial eclipse, no disorderly eating
Ethanol, the main component of alcohol, can inhibit the function of the testicles directly or through its metabolites; by damaging liver function, it increases estrogen levels and hypogonadism.
Partial eclipse can cause nutrient deficiency and affect male reproductive health. For example, zinc is an important element in the reproductive system, and the lack of zinc can cause a series of adverse effects. Mainly include: affecting the development of male reproductive organs and secondary sexual characteristics in adolescence, affecting sperm motility, weakening the body's immune function and prone to prostatitis, epididymitis and other infectious diseases, affecting the secretion of gonadotropins, zinc can guarantee Men's sexual ability, treatment of impotence. Another example is selenium is also an indispensable trace element for the human body, almost all from food. Japanese medical researchers observed 1,000 cases of male infertility and found that 37 people had insufficient selenium in their semen. Therefore, young men should not be a partial eclipse, and should pay attention to eating more zinc and selenium foods such as milk, corn, lean meat, turkey, soybeans, fish, oysters, liver, brown rice, etc.
It is forbidden to eat foods that have an impact on fertility, such as crude cottonseed oil; thoroughly wash vegetables and fruits contaminated by pesticides; eliminate natural dietary and synthetic chemical pollutants, including pesticides, insecticides, plastic utensils, packaging plastics Etc., to avoid the impact on reproductive function.
Do not abuse drugs. Some of the more widespread sexual health products in the society contain sex hormones or similar ingredients, which may affect the normal spermatogenesis of the testicles. Unmarried and unborn persons should be extra careful when choosing applications. It is best not to use them lightly.
Wash-not high temperature
Under normal circumstances, sperm can develop normally in a constant temperature environment of 34°C to 35°C. When the water temperature is too high during bathing, it is often "killing" in the dark. For example, the room temperature in the sauna can be as high as 70℃～80℃, which is more than twice the temperature of the normal bathroom, which is not conducive to the growth of sperm, or causes too much "dead sperm" and infertility. Medical experts have learned from the causes of male infertility that some men cannot survive because their testicular temperature is 2°C to 3°C higher than normal. Therefore, men should take the sauna carefully.
Live-can't live in a polluted environment, sit down soon
Radiation pollution in the living environment also often exists, such as marble, ceramic tiles, granite, toilets, etc. that are often used in home decoration. Some may contain excessive radiation. Physical factors such as electromagnetic waves, microwaves, infrared rays, ultraviolet rays, ultrasonic waves, lasers, etc. have thermal effects and can cause damage to the gonad tissue.
In the daily life of modern people, many people have the habit of sitting on the toilet for a long time, reading and reading newspapers. For men, this bad habit is particularly harmful to the prostate. Because sitting on the toilet for a long time prolongs the defecation time, the lower abdomen and pelvis are prone to congestion, which causes the varicose veins in the rectum and anus to form hemorrhoids; people who sit on the toilet for a long time and read newspapers will ignore the intention of defecation, which will make the body's defecation movements uncoordinated and stop The sensation of stool will cause difficulty in defecation, and then dry stool, which will form habitual constipation over time. At the same time, long-term constipation and fecal compression will cause the blood flow of the prostate to be blocked and aggravate the symptoms of prostatitis.
OK-ride a racing car soon
The height of the handlebars of the racing car is lower than the seat, and the center of gravity is tilted forward. The testicles and prostate of the perineum are close to the cushion. After prolonged squeezing, it will be ischemia, edema, and inflammation, which will affect the production of sperm and the production of prostatic fluid and semen. Normal secretion leads to infertility and prostatitis. Therefore, men riding racing cars should not exceed one hour a day, and sponge cover should be used to protect the perineal cushion.
From the moment of sexual maturity, it is necessary to establish a good life style of cleansing and self-love, and avoid unclean sex and sexual contact outside marriage. For those who have symptoms of genitourinary system infection, corresponding examinations should be carried out, effective treatment should be given early, and spouses should be avoided infecting, and cross-infection should be prevented, so as to avoid the double risk of infertility and infertility.
World Men's Health Day
The World Health Organization determines that October 28th is the “World Men’s Health Day” every year. At the same time, when the annual “World Men’s Health Day” comes, countries around the world are required to increase publicity on men’s health and call on the whole society to re Pay more attention to men’s health and call on every family to have more care for men’s health.
In 1994, the United Nations International Conference on Population and Development proposed that a program must be formulated to provide reproductive health information, consultation and services to adolescents and adult men. It must be both educational and make men responsible for family planning and prevent sexual transmission. The disease is willing to take the main responsibility. The Chinese government has formulated a special plan for this.
Since 2000, the National Population and Family Planning Commission has made a decision to set up the theme of China’s "Men’s Health Day" every October 28.
