    study question: Are common lifestyle factors associated with poor sperm morphology? summary answer: Common lifestyle choices make little contribution to the risk of poor sperm morphology. what is known already: Although many studies have claimed that men's lifestyle can affect sperm morphology, the evidence is weak with studies often underpowered and poorly controlled. study design, size, duration: Unmatched case-referent study with 318 cases and 1652 referents. Cases had poor sperm morphology (
