Researchers from Harvard and the University of Murcia in Spain found that healthy young men who indulge in junk food may become infertile by damaging their sperms. Moreover, foods high in trans fats -- like deep-fried and processed foods are worst, study said.

Fertility experts from America’s Harvard University and the University of Murcia, Spain, studied sperm from hundreds of men, aged between 18 and 22 and kept record of everything they ate for months. Each volunteer was assessed to ensure they were in finest shape and had no other problems that may affect their reproductive system.

All of them were told to record of every day meal for several months. Researchers found those who ate a high proportion of junk food had poorer quality sperm than those who ate nutritious diet on the daily basis. Although the subjects who ate junk food had regular exercise, their sperms were not good enough to survive.

The study also showed that those who ate junk food including trans fats were found to have the worst quality of sperm.

Foods that have been shown to boost men's fertility include eggs, salmon, natural yogurt, nuts, seeds, berries, sweet potatoes, broccoli and asparagus.

So, guys reject junk foods and start eating fertility booster.
