According to the study, the adding to the daily diet just a handful of walnuts can significantly improve sperm quality and increase the chances of becoming a father, even after 50 years.
The group of men who consumed walnuts daily for 12 weeks for conducting an experiment, improved sperm quality in all respects.
Professor of Andrology at the University of Sheffield, Alan Pacey said that today there is a lot of evidence that diet affects men in their erectile function and reproduction. The walnuts were found specific trace elements and fatty acids, which have a positive effect on male hormones.

Weekly consumption of three to four servings of this meat increases the risk to 40%. These are the results of the analysis of more than 2,000 case histories as part of the study.
According to scientists, it's not the red meat itself what brings harm but the method of its preparation - carcinogens are formed in a crispy crust that appears during fast roasting. Doctors do not object to the use of the same meat in stewed or baked form.
