NIOSH Safety and Health Topic: Bicycle Saddles and Reproductive Health

http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/bike/

Over the last several years, NIOSH researchers have investigated the potential health effects of prolonged bicycling in police bicycle patrol units, including the possibility that some bicycle saddles exert excessive pressure on the urogenital area of cyclists, restricting blood flow to the genitals.
