||High sperm density among members of organic farmers' association
||11 June 1994, Vol.343, No.8911, p.1498. 3 ref.
||In a Danish study of reproductive effects of pesticides in male greenhouse workers, an unexpectedly high sperm density was found in members of an association of organic farmers who manufacture their products without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers. This is in contrast to a world-wide decreasing trend of sperm density in the general population. No hypotheses are put forward to explain this finding.
