Does mountain dew hurt sperm cells? If so how?

Does mountain dew hurt sperm cells? If so how?

No: I say it's just silly. Dr. Fowler has pointed out that studies showing correlations do not prove causation. It may simply be that guys who drink more mountain dew prefer tighter underwear or rub it out more often (prevents sperms from getting concentrated). Bad epidemology studies generate a huge amount of junk, and if it doesn't make sense (as here), it never turns out to be true. ...Read more

Does mountain dew cause ulcers?

Does mountain dew cause ulcers?

Caffeine: In Mountain Dew can increase risk of developing ulcers. There is valve between the stomach and esophagus called the gastroesophageal (GE) sphincter. Normally, this valve closes very tightly to keep stomach contents from going back up (reflux) into the esophagus. Caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol all lower the pressure that keeps the GE sphincter closed. Reflux can lead to development of ulcers. ...Read more

Is it true that the yellow 5 in Mountain Dew and such drinks makes it harder for a men to get a woman pregnanf? My bro said it to me and I'm worried.

Uncertain: In one large Danish study, men who drank more than 1 liter of soda per day averaged 35 million sperm/ml of semen - those who did not drink soda averaged 50 million sperm/ ml.
