than others, a major new study shows a link between shift work and
reduced fertility, according to a British study. In Sweden, just over

The Swedish researcher Christina Bergh, professor of gynecology and
obstetrics at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, think
the study is interesting.
"It shows something new, that is not so well known. Shift work can
probably be added as another lifestyle factor that can affect
fertility," she said to swedish daily, Dagens Nyheter.
Christina Bergh think shift work for many can lead to a more
unhealthy lifestyle with irregular eating habits, smoking, higher body
weight and lack of exercise.
"And we know that smoking and high BMI are important factors that
impair fertility. There may be these which many be the cause, not the
shift work itself," she says. Detaisl of the research is found in Daily Mail
