Pesticide intake in food reduces male fertility says a study done by Harvard University. Researchers analysed sperm samples from 155 men aged 17 to 55 years old, those with the greatest intake of high pesticide sprayed fruit and vegies had a 49% lower sperm count than those with the lowest pesticide intake. They also had 32% fewer normally formed sperm. The study was published online in Human Reproduction on 31 March 2015. We offer a Fertility Diet and Lifestyle plan for couples wanting to conceive, followed for 3 months before actively trying to conceive, it may make a big difference.
