Crap food linked to pregnancy delays

In men, too much fast food means lower fertility because they get fat and nobody wants to, you know, get with ‘em. But there’s a downside for women, too. A study published in the Journal of Human Reproduction identified a link between women’s pre-pregnancy diets and the length of time it took them to conceive. Among the over 5,000 women surveyed, those who ate fast food 4 or more times per week (holy cow!) took about a month longer to conceive than those who rarely or never ate it. Similarly, women who ate fruit fewer than 1 to 3 times a month (what the…?) took longer to conceive than those who reported eating fruit 3 or more times per day. Many other foods were examined for effect, but fast food and fruits showed the largest impacts. Can we all just agree that McDonalds is terrible and move on? Also, here’s a recipe for the best burger ever. Mixed messages much?
