Red Meat Affects Fertility

A new Brazilian study shows that a diet high in red meat can result in a lower sperm count.

Cutting back on red meat, coffee, and alcohol can increase fertility of men, according to a new study from Brazilian researchers. Conducted by the Fertility-Assisted Fertilization Center in São Paulo, the study asked 250 men, whose partners were receiving fertility treatment, how often they consumed certain foods. Scientists then analyzed their semen samples, finding that men with poor diets had a reduced sperm count and subsequently partners with lower pregnancy rates. Conversely, men who consumed a diet rich in grains like wheat, oats, and barley, had increased rates of sperm concentration, and those who ate a lot of fruit had faster and more agile sperm.
