Low sperm count is a factor in a couple's inability to conceive. A new study points to a fatty diet as being a factor in low sperm count.


Young Montreal couples are often devastated when they cannot conceive. Young Montreal men often feel less of a man when they find out that their sperm count is too low. Of course Montreal has many fertility centers such Procrea Cliniques where couples can go for help.

Fatty foods

Now a new study has come out linking a high fat diet with low sperm count. Before getting overly excited this was just a small study in the USA and many other studies must concur with this one before any conclusions can be made. However, the researchers at the fertility clinic at Harvard University stays men should still heed the findings and change their diets according.

As it stands the obesity rate is high in Montreal and Montrealers are known to love their fast foods, such as poutine, which is French fries smothered in brown sauce and melted cheese, hamburgers, and so on. It would do the men and the women good to follow a decent diet regardless of these findings. Overall health is still a major concern in Montreal.

Obesity and low sperm count

Even if Montrealers are not interested in procreation, good health is important. Many of the male participants in the study were obese and although the researchers said they adjusted for this variable, obesity is a factor in a low semen count and obesity is linked to many health conditions such as heart problems.

Jill Attaman head researcher for the study says that reducing saturated fat and increasing omega3 fatty acids within the diet will not only improve general health but may enhance reproductive health as well. The findings were published in Human Reproduction.
