Vegetables and Fruits are a staple in any healthy diet BUT what you didn’t know is that they could in turn harm a guy’s sperm. You have pesticides to blame for that.
Researches have proven that Men who take in vegetables with highest pesticide levels have a lower sperm count. High pesticide produce includes spinach, strawberries and pears.
Salads also have a whole lot of nutritional benefits. Still, it’s a good idea to try to cut down on the level of pesticides you’re ingesting, no matter your sex. Women should also be conscious of their intake of high pesticide produce as various studies have shown that pesticides can also affect women’s health especially when it comes to breast cancer and egg supply.
The reason pesticides are so harmful is because they are endocrine disruptors which are capable of inducing tumor-promoting genes in the body. So whenever you can go for lower pesticide produce like Grapefuit & onions OR just go organic.
And in a case where you can’t do without those high pesticides produce, vigorously wash your fruits and vegetables with soap and water to remove some of the pesticides.
