SANTA ROSA, CA - FEBRUARY 07: Freshly poured glasses of Russian River Brewing Company Pliny the Younger triple IPA beer sit on a counter at Russian River Brewing Company on February 7, 2014 in Santa Rosa, California. Hundreds of people lined up hours before the opening of Russian River Brewing Co. to taste the 10th annual release of the wildly popular Pliny the Younger triple IPA beer that will only be available on tap from February 7th through February 20th. Craft beer aficionados rank Pliny the Younger as one of the top beers in the world. The craft beer sector of the beverage industry has grown from being a niche market into a fast growing 12 billion dollar business, as global breweries continue to purchase smaller regional craft breweries such this week's purchase of New York's Blue Point Brewing by AB Inbev.
Alcohol Can Increase Fertility In Men
Whether or not alcohol can affect fertility has been a discussion for a long time, but new research is showing some good news for men who like to drink.
According to the study, men who drink moderate amounts of alcohol, compared to too much or none at all, seem to have a higher semen volume and sperm count.
This could mean that not only does alcohol intake not hurt fertility, but it may actually help it. However, researchers are warning that alcohol still has its risks, so while men don’t have to completely avoid alcohol, they should keep the drinking moderate. And of course, everyone is different, so talk to a doctor first.
