Fast Food Could Double the Risk of Infertility

An article entitled, “Trying to Conceive? Fast Food Could Double the Risk of Infertility," sure caught my attention! Citing a study conducted in Australia, the author, Tereza Pultarova, outlines how “the foods women eat could be tied to their risk of infertility.” The researchers suggested that the regular consumption of fast food doubled the risk of infertility in women of childbearing age. They added that “not eating enough fruit was tied to a 50 percent increase in infertility risk, and eating fruit several times a day appeared to reduce the amount of time it took to conceive.” In other words, an individual’s diet has an influence on fertility. As the article points out, “processed foods are bad, and fresh fruit and vegetables are good, for fertility."

If this isn’t enough to convince people of the dangers of ingesting fast foods, I don’t know what else will! Not only does fast food wreak havoc on the human body, but it can prevent people from reproducing! Wait a minute... Something just dawned on me. Might this be a way of controlling our population? Is it possible that the fast food conglomerates are in cahoots with the government to control the most intimate process of life? Absolutely! So there are no two ways about it! We can actually blame it on fast foods!
