Vegeterians have lower sperm counts than meat-eaters – new study

A new research has found that though a diet rich in fruit and vegetables can protect against many illnesses and can prolong life, it reduces men fertility.

The study, conducted by researchers at Loma Linda University Medical School (California, USA), studied participants in southern California – a region with a high population of Seventh-Day Adventist Christians (who are strict vegetarians).

They found that vegetarians and vegans had significantly lower sperm counts compared with meat eaters (50 million sperm per ml as against 70 million per ml), but lived an average of 10 years longer than the American life expectancy (79 years).
