JUNK food, particularly products containing trans fats, can make healthy young men infertile by damaging their sperm, a joint American and Spanish study out today showed.
Fertility doctors from Harvard University and the University of Murcia, southeastern Spain, analysed sperm from hundreds of men aged between 18 and 22 and found those who ate a high proportion of junk food had poorer quality sperm than those with a nutritious diet. - News.Com.Au
Autogenocide by any other name!
Also, for kicks:
Just 1 in 7 U.S. workers is of normal weight without a chronic health problem, according to Gallup polling data, and it could be costing the economy more than $153 billion a year in lost productivity from increased sick days.
Gallup polled more than 100,000 full-time workers, and found that two-thirds of the work force is either overweight or obese and nearly half are both overweight and have at least one chronic health problem. The numbers on obesity are calculated using self-reported height and weight, which means the numbers could be even higher. Studies have shown that people tend to underestimate their weight and overestimate their height.
Workers who were overweight or obese were more likely to miss work than those of normal weight, but chronic health problems were a much bigger factor. Even among those of normal weight, chronic conditions are prevalent, as nearly 60% of those workers report a continuing health issue. - WSJ
About the only solution is to declare war on tomorrow, consolidate roles, and take everyone who is NOT essential and send them to the front.
At least they'll be in shape.
