TUBERCULOSIS CAN CAUSE LOW SPERM COUNT AND INFERTILITY..DR YAW ADUSl-POKU

Speaking at a media workshop in Accra on Wednesday November 10,2021,Dr Adusi-Poku said TB usually considered restricted to a person’s pulmonary system, if left undiagnosed, can spread to other body parts,including the brain,Kidney,and the pelvic areas.
He added that Tuberculosis is not a hereditary nor a spiritual affliction and can affect anyone though curable.
Dr Adusi-Poku seized the opportunity to advise Ghanaians especially the stop too much of alcohol,cigarette and snuff because they can get TB easily.
