Can eating raw meat help with infertility?
No, eating raw meat does not help with infertility, and it can harm you.
WHAT WE FOUND:
“There is no evidence that a raw meat diet can benefit fertility,” Dr. Albert Hsu said. There’s no data, there’s no evidence, there’s no credible theories to suggest that a raw meat diet might be helpful for fertility.
Hsu said not only did it not taste good, but eating raw meat was not safe.
“Raw meat can be harmful. Raw meat can be dangerous. Cooking raw meat to an appropriate temperature can destroy potential bacteria such as salmonella e.coli, all of which can make a person very sick,” said Hsu.
The CDC gives the same warning, stating that raw meat contains salmonella, e.coli and other bacteria, which can cause diarrhea, stomach cramps, high fever and vomiting. Hsu said there is no magic bullet to infertility, it really is something you should talk to your doctor about.
“I strongly recommend that you see your doctor if you have any fertility concerns,” Hsu said.
