A recent study has shown that women who eat fruits and vegetables with pesticides in them are less likely to get pregnant with IVF. The study involved 325 women who were receiving IVF treatments. The women were asked to fill out questionnaires. They were asked questions about their diet, health history, pregnancy history and weight.
Women who ate two or more fruits and vegetables with pesticides per day were 18 percent less likely to get pregnant. They were also 26 percent less likely to have a live birth. Dr. Jorge Chavarro is an associate professor of nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public School. He is also the lead author of the study.
Dr. Chavarro was surprised by the results of the study. He did not believe that the pesticides in fruits and vegetables had any impact on health. He did not think that the study would reveal anything significant. The study authors concluded that pesticide exposure is one of the things that determine the success rate of IVF.
The good news is that reducing your exposure to pesticides can increase the success rate of IVF. In fact, if you eat one low-pesticide fruit or vegetable per day instead of a high-pesticide one, then you can increase your chances of getting pregnant with IVF by 79 percent. You can also increase your chances of having a live birth by 88 percent.
Dr. Chavarro stated that there needs to be more studies done in order to examine the effects that pesticides have on health. Pesticides may increase the risk of cancer and other chronic health conditions. Dr. Chavarro stated that he will now be buying more organic apples.
