High fat food can change the facts of life. Eating a diet high in saturated fats can lower a man's sperm count according to a new study.

Researchers asked 99 men about their diets and then analyzed their sperm samples over four years and found that men who consumed the most saturated fats had a 35 percent lower sperm count.
