BACON LOWERS SPERM COUNT: COUPLES TRYING TO CONCEIVE SHOULD SKIP BACON AND EAT MORE FISH

0 Comment

Research presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine’s 2013 Annual Meeting in Boston advises men to stay away from bacon and other forms of red meat if they are trying to conceive. While bacon tends to lower male sperm count, certain species of fish actually improve fertility. The effect of processed meat intake lowered quality and fish raised quality of sperm.

The relationship between diet and men’s fertility is an interesting one and there is certainly now convincing evidence that men who eat more fresh fruit and vegetables have better sperm than men who don’t.
