Eating fast food linked to infertility
- Live Well
May 17, 2018-Compared to women who generally avoided fast food, women who indulged four or more times a week before they conceived took almost a month longer to become pregnant, the study of 5,598 first-time mothers in Australia, New Zealand and the UK found. Overall 39 percent conceived within one month of when they began having sex with their partner without contraception and 468, or eight percent, experienced infertility and failed to conceive after 12 months of trying. While women who rarely or never ate fast food had an eight percent risk of infertility, the risk was 16 percent among women who ate fast food at least four times weekly.
