It’s safe to say we are what we eat and according to a new study from the University of Harvard, so are our offspring.
Researchers from the University of Harvard recently determined that men who regularly ate large portions of processed meats, such as bacon (which is heavily laden with chemicals and preservatives) could be destroying the quality of their “little guys”.
The University of Harvard researchers identified a strong relationship between higher processed meat consumption and lower sperm count.
What they found was men who ate processed meats such as hot-dogs, bacon and other varieties of cured meats not only produced less sperm, but even more frighteningly, they were of abnormal shape and size.
According to the British newspaper, the Telegraph who first reported these findings, men who ate higher qualities of processed meat daily had 30% less little guys swimming around.
