A recent study has sparked questions about cannabis consumption and changes in male sperm. The results are based on a test conducted on a group of male rats and a small group of 20 + humans, Duke University came to the conclusion that cannabis has the ability to alter genes through DNA.
According to this study at Duke University, two different pathways are present in the body that may differ when someone consumes cannabis regularly. According to the study, the ability of organs to grow and the ability for the body to fight tumours and cancer were impacted by cannabis consumption.
Every Study Has Another That Contradicts
The study goes on to suggest that cannabis consumption alters your sperms DNA. Other studies suggest it lowers your sperm count and some studies suggest that smoking cannabis on a regular basis could lead to impotence. All of this sounds like scare tactics to me. There was a study conducted by a Jamaican physician in the mid-80s or early 90s.
She nearly lost everything in life because her findings and the viewpoint of her funding supporters was different. Her study concluded that children who had parents that consume cannabis regularly we’re no different than children who didn’t. This research is fascinating and goes against the propaganda of cannabis affecting your ability to have children.
I Am Living Proof
Coming from a writer who has smoked cannabis his entire life I don’t see the truth in this. I’m the father of six children that I started having when I was 18 years old. I’m 42 today, and my youngest is a year-and-a-half old. I consume around two ounces a week on average, though thanks to concentrates that’s changing. My sex life has never been a troublesome issue.
To say smoking cannabis lowers your sperm count seems like a decades-old anti-cannabis propaganda technique to me. I don’t think studies really should be posted based upon a group of random rats and 20 + humans. If you’re going to conduct an investigation especially by such a reputable University as Duke, I would think you would take the time to do a controlled one that is effective and credible.
