Eating a diet full of processed junk food is inevitably asking for some health issues. Refined sugars, blanched carbohydrates, bad fats like hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, and chemical ingredients such as BHT are common additives in most of the foods that millions of Americans consume on a daily basis. Unless one is persistently conscientious about what they are putting into their bodies and research food ingredients and constantly read food labels, there is a great chance that they are ingesting unhealthy processed foods.
An array of health problems can occur from eating junk foods, such as hypertension, type-2 diabetes, and high cholesterol. One growing issue that many Americans probably overlook as being caused by a junk food diet, though, is infertility.
A recent study published in the Journal Human Reproduction shows a connection between low sperm counts and a high-fat junk food diet. “In this preliminary cross-sectional study, high intake of saturated fats was negatively related to sperm concentration whereas higher intake of omega-3 fats was positively related to sperm morphology,” details the study.
Researchers asked 99 men questions about their eating habits while examined their sperm. Those men who displayed the most intakes of unhealthy fats had about a 43% lower count of sperm and 38% lower sperm concentration than those men who consumed less unhealthy fats and ate healthier fats such as Omega-3s. The men who ate more Omega-3s also interestingly showed “sperm with a more normal structure” than the men with the high unhealthy fat consumption.
Other studies in the past have shown similar results, only adding more reasoning behind why eating a diet full of processed junk food negatively impacts health.
Don’t eat a pie – Eat a Skinny Guy!
Obesity is now a bigger killer than starvation!
There are many reasons for this and they’re not just to do with eating too much and having a heart attack or choking to death on doughnuts…for example, fat people often find it hard to escape from a burning car or shimmy down a vine when being chased by jungle animals.
It is true that less and less obese people are dying of starvation…but that’s is only part of the reason!
Whatever the cause, fat people are in serious danger and that’s just not fair!
One way to reduce fat is to eat a diet that is high in fibre, and that’s where revolutionary new research may inadvertently solve two problems at once!
Starving people are mainly skin and bone, not an ounce of fat, they’re also very miserable.
Fat people are hungry and miserable.
The answer then is to feed the starving people to the obese people thus eliminating world starvation and obesity in one go!
Digesting all the bones and gristle of a starving person will soon help the fatties shift a few pounds, and less starving people will make a number of governments look good and leave more food for the other starving people to eat.
And lets not forget that humans taste like pork!
A team of obese men have been sent out to various parts of the third world to put this theory to the test.
In the interests of common decency they will begin by eating dead starving people, but if the results are promising then living ones are on the menu, provided they’re happy to volunteer for the program.
In return for feeding yourself to a fat person your family will be given food and iPads!
A mouthwatering prospect we think you’ll agree.
