Fast food increases the risk of infertility in women

A Group of Australian and British scientists came to the conclusion that the love of junk food and exclusion from the diet of fruit can lead to difficulties with conception in women of reproductive age. Their conclusions , the researchers made on the basis of the observation of more than five thousand women trying to get pregnant.

A Couple is considered infertile if pregnancy women does not occur within one year of regular sexual life without use of contraceptives. Inability to conceive may be associated not only with absolute infertility, which is due to incurable changes in the reproductive system. Among the factors affecting fertility, isolated, alcohol abuse, Smoking, drug use, and obesity — both women and men.

Trying to have a baby, couples are advised to follow a healthy lifestyle: eat right, give up bad habits and increase physical activity. However, until now studies of the Association between eating habits of healthy fertile women and their ability to get pregnant was conducted.

The Authors of new work studied the results of surveys 5 598 women in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand aged from 18 to 43 years, held an appointment at the obstetrician in early pregnancy (14-16 week) my first pregnancy. The patient was told about how long they have been trying to get pregnant, and that was part of their diet a month before conception — individual questions in the questionnaire concerned fruits, greens, fish and junk food. These data were compared with the period during which a couple tried to conceive a child.

Among all respondents in the group of infertile got about 8 per cent of couples, but among those who rarely ate fruit for a long time could not get pregnant for 12 per cent of women. Of those who ate fast food four times a week or more often in the category of infertile was 16% of the women. The average lover of burgers and pizza became pregnant a month later than those who adhered to a healthy diet. Three to four servings of fruit per day, on the contrary, accelerated the conception in about two weeks. Oddly enough, the amount of greenery and fish in the diet did not affect the timing of the pregnancy.

"the study shows that a healthy diet that includes fruits and at least of fast food, has a positive effect on fertility and reduces the time it takes a woman to get pregnant", — comments on the conclusions of the lead author Claire Roberts.

How exactly fast food "lays" conception, scientists don't know yet. The authors of the earlier studies suggested that the fatty acids contained in vegetable and animal fats and oils, may have an adverse effect on the egg. In addition, the abundance of sugar, salt and fat can affect the metabolism.

In the new work, scientists have noted the importance of a balanced diet for women trying to get pregnant — even those who are not treated for infertility. In the future, according to the authors, research is needed and given the other food groups.
