A new study says that in case if you are thinking of having a child of you own then you should eat more fish instead of bacon and other such processed meats. Fish happens to improve the sperm count in men.
Researchers for this Harvard University study questioned 156 men who were found to have trouble to conceive a baby with their parents. They were questioned regarding their diet and the size and shape of their sperm. This was reported by the Sydney Morning Herald.
These findings showed that the regular processed meat eating males have lower amounts of normal sperm when compared to those men eating less of bacon, sausages, hamburgers and ham.
