Abstract

Objectives: A negative association between Y:X sperm ratio and high levels of boron exposure was suggested in an epidemiological study conducted in boron mining areas of China. That study, however, was criticized by many authors due to some weaknesses in the study design. The present epidemiological study was designed to corroborate or refute the above-mentioned negative association between boron exposure and Y:X sperm ratio in men.
