10. Male Infertility
A recent article in Health Fact News explained that the reason that many men have difficulty in fathering children is that their sperm clump together instead of swimming singly. Stuck to each other in this fashion, individual sperm can’t get enough momentum for any one of them to penetrate and fertilize a female egg.
The authors of this article suggest taking doses of vitamin C since this vitamin is shown to be deficient in those men whose sperm tend to clump. Vitamin C is present in many foods, but it is destroyed by heat. Thus, if you eat a diet of totally cooked foods, this vitamin may be lacking enough to result in sperm clumping. Even a small amount of raw fruits and vegetables in your daily diet will more than adequately meet your requirements for vitamin C. In synthetic (pill) form, this vitamin is unusable by the body and therefore toxic.
Most often, male infertility cannot be traced to any one particular thing, but results after a lifetime of unhealthful practices.
