If you want to read the article titled 'Junk food habits irreversibly damage sperm by age 20' by Hannah Frishberg, click this link https://www.foxnews.com/health/junk-food-habits-irreversibly-damage-sperm-by-age-20-study-claims to read the article in its entirety. 

Pizza, candy, chips and other processed, high-fat food can cause permanent damage to sperm, according to a new study from Harvard University. 

The researchers studied nearly 3,000 men ages 18 to 20 and found that vegetarians and those with diets rich in fruit, veggies, chicken and fish had higher sperm counts than those on a “Western diet” of processed meats and junk food. 

The World Health Organization considers a normal sperm count to contain 39 million or more sperm per ejaculate. Study subjects who ate a Western diet were found to have 25.6 million fewer sperm per instance than the subjects with the best eating habits. 

Male infertility has skyrocketed over the last 15 years, according to one 2018 study, which reported dwindling sperm samples from the US and Spain.
