Walnuts have been known for being a super food. Studies have shown that men who add walnuts to their diet, receive a huge boost to their cardiovascular system. The gamma-tocopherol form of vitamin E in walnuts has been found to provide significant protection from heart problems.
And now a new study found that it can boost the quality of the man’s sperm. Over 100 men were brought into a UCLA study where they gave a sperm sample, then half the group ate 2.5 ounces of walnuts every day for 12 weeks and the other half to continue with their normal diet. When both groups came back and got tested again, the walnut group experienced improvement in sperm vitality, motility, and morphology – key components in male fertility.
At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Americans scrambled to find toilet paper amidst the shortage— but now, the worry over toilet paper seems inconsequential in comparison to the baby formula shortage that is panicking new parents across the country, caused by the closing of the largest U.S. formula manufacturing plant. In 2022, 75% of parents in the U.S. said that they rely on formula in order to feed their infants and toddlers, causing widespread alarm when the shelves all over the United States emptied out, leaving parents with insufficient nourishment for their growing children. For those who are not parents, or have not had kids recently, it seems reasonable to question how impactful this shortage really is, considering the natural production of breast milk that all mothers have relied on since the beginning of time.
