Could Your Guy’s Diet Be Harming His Sperm?

Yesterday, we told you about Edward Nejat’s research that suggests type O blood may be a possible barrier to fertility in women.

Well, another day – another study. And this time, we’ve got something for the guys.

Today, researchers are reporting from the American Society of Reproductive Medicine conference in Denver that men who consume high levels of saturated fats may produce fewer sperm. A study, helmed by experts from Harvard Medical School, monitored dietary patterns in 91 men seeking fertility treatment and found “men in the highest third of saturated fat intake had 41% fewer sperm than those in the lowest third.”

As for the reason for the link between fat intake and sperm count, additional research is required, but according to Dr. Tony Rutherford of the British Fertility Society, these findings should encourage people to eat healthily. [The Independent]
