Kuala Lumpur : A Singaporean urologist has claimed that eating a banana every three days can improve fertility in men, according to a report.

According to Sin Chew Daily, the fruit can increase sperm count as it contains high level of magnesium to produce sperm cells, reports a website.

Taking food like cashew nuts, potato, spaghetti and seafood will also have a similar effect, according to the doctor.

He advised men to avoid drinking alcohol, smoking, taking a hot shower or spending time in a sauna as these can affect the production of sperm.
