"Sperm Count Paranoia a Widespread Worry"
"I think the evidence is growing that chemicals in the environment do affect a man's sperm count," says Shanna Swan, director of the Center for Reproductive Epidemiology at the Medical Center and professor of obstetrics and gynecology

"(Instead) we will provide timely preventive care at no cost, and in doing so, our employees and their families will be healthier in the long run, which will result in a lower bill for the university."
