Eating bacon lowers sperm quality, study shows
Foxnews.com ^ | 16 October 2013

Posted on 10/16/2013 4:29:24 PM PDT by ConorMacNessa

Eating bacon can significantly lower a man’s sperm quality, Medical Daily reported.

In a study presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine’s 2013 Annual Meeting in Boston, researchers from Harvard University gathered data from 156 men who were undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVR) with a partner. Each couple was asked questions about their diet, including how often they consumed processed meat, red meat, white meat, poultry, and fish.

I don’t want my sons to father children outside of marriage. I will encourage them to eat bacon ... and their wives can try to break the habit.

I don't think quality matters if you jerky it.

There you go! I've been eating bacon for sixty-five years and I have six children - each one of them a head case!

Once again-it ain’t the bacon that’s bad for you. It’s the chemicals used to “process” it.

Raise yer own, smoke it well and enjoy it daily! You’ll be just fine and much happier!

I think not, FRiend! I enjoyed a breakfast this morning consisting of four slices of bacon, three sausage links and home fries. Life is good!

Is Medical Daily a Muslim publication? Or merely politically correct?

I’ve eaten bacon all my life, and I have 13 kids.

So all my Southern ancestors that ate tons of bacon and sired multitudes of chillens had their sperms degraded? Who knew? How did I get here?

From the safety provided by my keyboard I announce that I absolutely detest, loathe and am disgusted by the mere stench of bacon. I find it a revolting product with nothing of value.

For me

The rest of you, enjoy. You can even have my share.

The best bacon I ever ate was 50 years ago. Dad bought a 5 pound of it at a local grocery. It came with the rind still on it.

When we got home we found the bacon was covered with blue mold.

We cleaned the mold off, sliced off several pieces and fried it. It was delicious!

I miss the old bacon slabs with the rind (hide) still on it. If you sliced it with the rind still on you had a nice chewy string piece to chew on after you had eaten the meat.

If you sliced between the meat and the rind, then cut the slabs of bacon you had a nice rind to flavor a big pot of beans with.

So tell us, do you sometimes awaken in the middle of the night with a strange urge to roll around in the mud? Do you have an unnatural attraction to egg products? Perhaps you've been known to wrap yourself around a shrimp now and again... lay across the backyard grill?

Don't worry, nobody's taking notes...

Same here, but when we butchered hogs and put all the bacon on the tables in the smokehouse, piled salt on the top and let it drip for several days, smoked it for a week or so, yuuuuummmm.

DP and I are not big fans of bacon. Maybe if we ate lots and lots of it ... but honestly, nothing seems to affect our fertility!

I hope your son is getting better!

I can’t keep bacon in the house. If I went out and bought bacon looking like that I would eat it all at one sitting.

I doubt this study. After all, Mohammedans do not eat bacon and, based on the quality of the average Mohammadan, the quality of their sperm is abysmally low.

Hubby and I love bacon. Mmm. We haven’t noticed a fertility issue. Lol

Our son has had one surgery. More to come. He had a rough 36 hours when they took him off sedation post surgery. It is hard to watch. He pulled staples out of his incision! Now he is strapped down all over and has his head wrapped in a turban so he doesn’t pull out his pressure monitor. He is doing amazingly well, however! He can write and respond to commands. He does well with the physical therapist. Major surgeries soon to follow though we dont know when. You can see God’s hand in his healing and just that he is breathing at all. I stand amazed! Thank you for asking, and please keep him in your prayers.

I bought a package of really pretty bacon in Baxley, GA but it tasted funny. I took it back to the store and the butcher said someone slipped a boar hog in on them. He said the bacon was beautiful but had an off taste.

They replaced it of course.
