In this episode, I interviewed Dr. Scott, a certified strength and conditioning specialist with Ph.D. in Health Science from Trident University. 

We talked about how men seem to be less masculine and the increase in infertility in today’s time. 

Join us to know how significantly the sperm count declined in the past decades and all about testosterone.

A bit about me (Dr. Orest Komarnyckyj)
