big fish and infertility

Large fish consumption has been linked to infertility in both men and women, according to medical specialists.

Large fish have been found to contain heavy metals that can cause infertility, according to Oladapo Ashiru, Secretary General of the International Federation of Fertility Societies.

Because they eat smaller fish, deep sea fish typically have the highest levels of mercury in them, according to a 2017 Harvard Medical School study. The report went on to caution consumers against consuming huge fish, including king mackerel, swordfish, shark, and tilefish.

According to the health expert, new types of infertility have been linked to the ingestion of these aquatic species.

Prof. Ashiru cautioned ladies against driving in their underwear as well.

Prof. Ashiru, who is also the head of the African Reproductive Care Societies, advised men to abstain from smoking since it lowers their sperm count in addition to adopting healthy eating and drinking practices.

The professor of anatomy and reproductive endocrinology claims that by raising awareness of the conditions’ causes, infertility can be avoided.

According to the World Health Organization, infertility is a disorder of the male and female reproductive systems that is characterized by the inability to conceive after 12 months or more of consistent, unprotected sexual activity.

The purpose of the gathering, which drew first women from eleven African nations, was to talk about eradicating the stigma associated with infertility and increasing health care capacity.
