We all know fast food can affect your weight, but it may also be the reason some people can't have children.

According to a new study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives , the more fast food you eat, the higher levels of industrial chemicals in your body. These chemicals have been linked to infertility.

Researchers say the chemicals can come from the packaging, gloves worn by the workers or the machines used to process the food.

The study suggests eating more fruits and vegetables to help avoid these chemicals.
