According to a UPI story from earlier this week, researchers at Spain’s University of Murcia announced that they had found that “men who eat large amounts of meat and full fat dairy products have lower seminal quality” than those who eat more fruits and vegetables.

Yep, the trick to improving erectile projectile apparently has to do with consuming plant foods rich in anti-oxidants.

And, while I’m not quite sure what constitutes “high quality” semen, my guess is that it has something to do with men’s lil’ guys’ being strong swimmers. So, fellas, think of it this way: Would you rather eat your veggies and have sperm that swims like Michael Phelps or chow down on burgers and have sperm that flails like a toddler in his floaties?

The choice is yours, boys.
