Obesity and Fertility

Australian researchers have discovered that a fatty diet has the ability to damage eggs in the ovary and prevent them from becoming healthy embryos - giving light to the observation that obese women are often infertile.

According to the researchers from the University of Adelaide, the fat-induced infertility is caused by a protein known as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma, and control of this protein can be achieved by losing and controlling weight.
