In brief: Most are not healthy
Healthy is a word defined by the person reporting on health.
As a long time reproductive md, the vast majority of those who think they are healthy actually are not. People pursuing low fat, low calorie, or vegetarian diets and who exercise (aerobic) frequently actually are hurting their chances for pregnancy. Western health is in desperate shape and starving africans may be healthier overall.

Agree with above. Not sure whether this is true. Read somwhere that people who consume low protein diet or people who are malnourished are more fertile. African women may not adopt birth control measures as much as Americans.
