What affects fertility in males?

Cigarette smoking, alcohol drinking, street drug use, pollution, radiation, chemicals, drugs, heavy metal exposure, etc. can lead to low sperm count or poor sperm motility. Also, hot baths, tight-fitting underwear, sitting for long periods of time, working with computer laptops on the lap, and carrying cellphones in the front pocket are habits that damage the overall quality of sperm.
