Are There Pesties in His Testes?

Are There Pesties in His Testes?

According to a new study published in the journal Human Reproduction, men who often eat pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables had lower sperm counts and more oddly shaped spermies (which can impact their ability to glom on to eggs) than those whose diets contain less toxins. The study showed that among the biggest offenders were strawberries, celery, and grapes.

Researchers didn’t examine whether women’s fertility is affected to the same extent—or whether the damage is reversible—but if you and your husband are planning to put a bun in the oven, have him nosh on produce with low chemical residue, such as avocados, pineapples, and cabbage. These three were discovered to have fewer toxins.
