Men Without Children May Have Increased Risk of Heart Disease

Men who do not have children appear to face a higher risk of dying from heart disease than those who become fathers, a new study published in the journal Human Reproduction suggests.

The study’s conclusion:  married men who have no children have a higher risk of dying from cardiovascular disease contracted after the age of 50 than men with two or more children.

However, since this is just one study, more studies will have to be done in order to confirm these findings.  If you want more information on Male Infertility and/or heart disease, check out these links:
