Caffeine linked to female infertility
A study published in the British Journal of Pharmacology on May 26th links caffeine with female infertility.
Caffeine reduces muscle activity in the Fallopian tubes that carry eggs from a woman’s ovaries to her womb. “Our experiments were conducted in mice, but this finding goes a long way towards explaining why drinking caffeinated drinks can reduce a woman’s chance of becoming pregnant,” says Sean Ward, professor of physiology and cell biology, at the University of Nevada School of Medicine, who conducted the study. – An excerpt by Anne McMillin’s article published in Nevada Today (a publication of the University of Nevada).
