Another Reason to Eat More Fruits and Veggies

Does the man in your life eat enough fruits and veggies?


A recent study reports that men who don't eat a lot of fruits and veggies may be less fertile than those men that eat plenty of fruits and veggies.

The antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables may help prevent sperm damage, which causes them to become sluggish and unable to fertilize an egg. Mainly the antioxidants that are found in brightly colored produce such as leafy greens, tomatoes, peppers and oranges, were associated with strong, healthy sperm.

Looking to start a family? Then, you may want to start by feeding your man a big salad and some pomegranate juice.

Haha, fitnessgirl! But I'm thinking that I'm so thankful that my husband doesn't like fruits and veggies! I'm going to throw it all out anyway, just in case.
