Protein intake and ovulatory infertility
Assisted reproductive technologies in this country are big business. We won’t go into the ethics of physicians providing ART to force a woman into a pregnancy that her body is screaming that it’s not ready for and how this can impact and preprogram the developing infant for chronic disease and is slowly destroying the health of our nation because I don’t have a strong opinion on this… However, the idea that lifestyle changes can impact fertility is well accepted in the research.
In this study alone with the switch to an intake of plant protein vs animal protein resulted in 50% lower risk of anovulatory infertility. With numbers this high, it is an absolute that any woman wishing to become pregnant but having problems should attempt a high plant based diet. Besides being more effective and much, much, much safer with better long term health outcomes, it’s got to be just a little cheaper than a $15,000 attempt at pregnancy.
