Junk Food May Impair Fertility

Like father, like son…like sperm, at least when it comes to getting sluggish after a heavy meal. That’s the conclusion of a recent study out of the Harvard School of Public Health, which found that when men eat fatty, unhealthy food, their sperm lose the ability to move vigorously enough to make the journey all the way up the ovarian tube.1 A related study found that eating trans fats reduces sperm count. Added together, these facts seem to indicate that a junk food diet may lead men to male infertility. So it would seem that Tom Jones was actually practicing birth control rather than seduction in his famous eating scene. >
