A small sausage may harm baby-making

13 November 2014, 08:11 Scott Dunlop

Nairobi - Eating as little as half a portion of processed meat per day may have a negative impact on male fertility, scientists have found, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

That amount would be the equivalent of one small sausage or one rasher of bacon.

Fish, veg better for sperm

A study compared the quality of the sperm in men with varying diets, and pinpointed that men with a lower processed meat intake had sperm that was up to 30% healthier than men who ate bacon, sausage, hamburgers and lunch meats.

In addition to the processed meat finding, those conducting the study discovered that men whose diets included more fish also had healthier sperm.

The impact on fertility from diet-related issues has been the subject of many studies, and, while some doctors say that it’s difficult to explain why certain foods have an impact on fertility, it’s probably best to eat healthily while trying to conceive, including plenty of fruit and veg and fish in your diet.
