The liver and kidneys of pigs, cows, and sheep all contain different levels of heavy metal cadmium. Experts remind these men who want to strengthen their waists and tonify their kidneys to avoid infertility if they eat too much "kidney".
The latest research has found that the liver and kidneys of pigs, cows, and sheep contain different levels of heavy metal cadmium. When people eat cadmium while taking supplements, it is likely to cause infertility. If combined with being a smokers themselves, the probability of infertility is as high as 60%.
Cadmium can induce degenerative changes in the structure and function of male organogenesis such as testis and epididymis, and finally lead to the decline of reproductive capacity.
According to the recommendations of the World Health Organization, the weekly exposure of each person to cadmium should not exceed 7 micrograms per kilogram of body weight. Kidney, which is considered a "strong sperm" food, contains high levels of cadmium. Cadmium harms human tissues and organs in many ways, mainly the kidney, liver and reproductive function. It will not only reduce the number of sperm, but also affect the implantation of zygote. It may cause the zygote to be difficult to implant and affect pregnancy due to the damage of cadmium to chromosomes.
If combined with being a smokers themselves, the probability of infertility is as high as 60%, because for every pack of cigarettes smoked, the amount of cadmium in the body increases by 2-4 micrograms. In addition, chronic cadmium poisoning can also cause kidney damage or bone diseases in the human body.
Finally, I would like to remind everyone that high zinc foods can help eliminate cadmium. Therefore, in order to prevent excessive intake of cadmium in daily life, it is advisable to choose foods containing zinc. You can eat more vegetables, fruits, etc. High zinc foods are mainly made of shellfish, such as oysters, which contain the most zinc. The alginic acid in kelp can also excrete cadmium in the body. Apples contain galactonic acid, which is helpful for detoxification. Eat more milk and soy products, and the rich calcium they contain is a useful "toxin mover". Also, pay attention to quitting smoking and avoiding contact with cadmium containing items such as batteries in daily life.
