High Fat Diet May Lower Men’s Sperm Count
A diet high in fat could reduce men’s sperm counts, a new study suggests.
Among participants inِ the study, thoseِ with theِ highest fat intake hadِ a 43 percent lowerِ total sperm count compared withِ thoseِ who hadِ the lowest fat intake.
Men consuming theِ mostِ saturated fats hadِ a 35 percent lowerِ total sperm count thanِ men eating theِ least.
In contrast, omega-3 fatty acids(the type ofِ fat oftenِ foundِ in fish andِ plant oils) mayِ beِ good forِ sperm count.
The new study was published March 14 in the journal Human Reproduction.
