Research in Brazil involves 250 men and their partners who are doing fertility treatment called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).

Each participant was asked to say how often they consumed a number of foods, including fruits and vegetables, nuts, grains, meat and fish. They also were asked how often drinking alcohol and smoking. Semen sample was then analyzed to determine their health and concentration of sperm in each pair were monitored during treatment.
