Ladies: Don't be too impressed with men who take you on food hunts

1
People are obsessed with finding tasty food. Some people make an effort to go on weekly food hunts. But we all know that good-tasting food usually have high amounts of saturated fat! You may want to think twice about getting into a serious relationship with a man (if you want to have children) who is obsessed over searching for good food. A study showed that men with fatty diets have less sperm.

The World Health Organization defines anything over 15 million sperm per millilitre of semen as normal.

A study involving 701 young Danish men who were about 20 years old and getting checkups for the military between 2008 and 2010 found that:
- Men who got <11.2 percent of their energy from saturated fats had an average sperm concentration of 50 million per millilitre of semen and a total sperm count of about 163 million.
- Men who got >15 percent of their energy from saturated fats had 45 million sperm per millilitre of semen and a 128 million sperm count.
- 13% of men in the lowest-fat group and 18% of men in the highest-fat group had <15 million sperm per millilitre of semen.

It means the higher the saturated fat intake, the less sperm the men have. But also, if the men have too little saturated fat in their diet, they could have less than normal sperm count.

So, what does this mean for women selecting mating partners? Avoid the gluttons and also avoid those who are overly conscious about fat intake!

Women, regardless of the amount of saturated intake, have NO sperm...
