The following foods can have a significant impact on male fertility:
Studies have proved that alcohol is the main component of alcohol, which can increase the concentration of catecholamine in the body, vasospasm, testicular hypoplasia, and even atrophy the testicles, resulting in structural changes in spermatogenic function, insufficient secretion of testosterone and other male hormones, resulting in female manifestations such as voice thinning and breast enlargement. This type of person is prone to male infertility, and even if they have children, the likelihood of deformities in the next generation is also high. Women can cause menstrual irregularities, amenorrhea, mutation in egg production, loss of libido, or cessation of ovulation.
Coffee has a direct impact on conception. Among these women, those who drink more than one cup of coffee a day are only half as likely to become pregnant as those who do not drink such drinks. Therefore, they propose that women should drink less coffee if they plan to conceive.

Eating roasted beef and mutton is a habit among residents in Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, and other regions. Some people have found that a few women who love to eat roasted mutton have children with mental retardation, paralysis, or deformities.

Toxoplasma infection is also known as toxoplasmosis. This parasite is invisible to the naked eye and mainly causes infections in humans, animals, and poultry. The developmental stage during which the protozoa cause diseases in humans and animals is called trophozoite, which looks like a bow under a microscope, hence its name. Toxoplasmosis can infect at least 60 types of livestock or poultry, and people can often become infected when they have the opportunity to come into contact with these livestock and eat their immature meat.
