Over the last 40 years, the quality of male semen, including the sperm count, has decreased. There are numerous reasons for this phenomenon, including occupational and environmental exposure to heavy metals such as cadmium, lead, mercury and arsenic. Food contaminated with mycotoxins and pesticides, the influence of industrial chemicals, cigarette smoking and endocrine factors are also of great significance. This paper discusses the problem based on the literature of the last few years on the role of physiologically occurring metals in semen and the effect that heavy metals have on decreasing male fertility.

Na przestrzeni ostatnich 40 lat spadła jakość nasienia męskiego, w tym m.in. liczba plemników. U podstaw tego zjawiska leży wiele przyczyn, wśród których wymienia się ekspozycję zawodową i środowiskową na metale ciężkie, m.in. na kadm, ołów, rtęć i arsen. Duże znaczenie ma również zanieczyszczona mykotoksynami i pestycydami żywność, wpływ chemikaliów przemysłowych, palenie papierosów i czynniki endokrynologiczne. Niniejsza praca stanowi omówienie problemu na podstawie piśmiennictwa z ostatnich kilku lat na temat roli metali fizjologicznie występujących w nasieniu oraz wpływu metali ciężkich na obniżenie płodności męskiej.
