In brief: Unhealthy chemicals

Smoking, drugs, excessive alcohol, other toxic chemicals, such as chemotherapy, radiation, obesity and sometime stress.

Good succinct answer. I might add extreme sports. Toxic chemicals might also be called workplace exposure to toxins and these are often difficult to list, check OSHA

For males, let's add high heat.

In brief: Agree +

Food and over exercise.
For almost 10 years we have been working with patients on metabolic heath and fertility. Carbohydrates stimulate Insulin that decreases fertility with pcod as worst example. Vegetarian diets are very bad for fertility. Physiologic stress from aerobic exercise has a very negative influence on fertility. Low carb high fat is best diet and slo burn resistance training.

In brief: Heat too ..

Heat is another environmental issue, particularly for men.
Men who take very hot baths, sauna, hot tub or extreme exercise can also inhibit sperm production and function.
