The Big Bad O
A health conscious friend sent me this article about the fertility consequences of trans-fats, the latest bad food fad. The article reports that as little as one big, bad O (donut) could significantly impair fertility. On the plus side, the article points out that simple treatments for infertility like good nutrition and less processed food could be beneficial alternatives to ludicrously expensive "fertility treatments." Of course, no mention is made of learning about how the reproductive system actually works, like in Natural Family Planning. But at least they ratify CCL's approach of good nutrition.
