19, 2018 (HealthDay News) — New research shows that marijuana causes genetic changes in sperm, though it’s not clear what effect those changes have, or if they’re passed on to a man’s children.

19, 2018 (HealthDay News) — New research shows that marijuana causes genetic changes in sperm, though it’s not clear what effect those changes have, or if they’re passed on to a man’s children. But the scientists said their findings suggest that men trying to have children should consider avoiding marijuana. To begin with, the research team speculated that men who either smoked or had smoked marijuana would have poor sperm quality. However, that is.

In fact, when comparing the number of “good swimming” sperm in men between the ages 30 to 35 with men over age 55, sperm motility decreased by 54%. These strong variations could not be blamed on sexual abstinence, which was tracked in the study.
