Apple News is reporting,

Medical researchers are warning that the ZIKA virus could cause lasting infertility and lead to men’s testicles shrinking.

Doctors warn that if the findings, in mice, apply to humans it could lead to an epidemic of infertility. It is not yet know if the shrinkage would apply to humans but they do believe that the virus is likely to reduce sperm counts and testosterone levels in affected men.

ZIKA is already known to lead to shrunken heads in babies whose mothers catch the infection. The virus also has the unusual ability to cross the barrier that separates the male reproductive organs from the blood stream.

Man, ZIKA will ravage the testes?  Not good.
