Tofu, Sperm, and Neuron-Generating Factories

1.) You may want to lay off anything containing genistein such as tofu, legumes, and soya. It may impede the little swimmers.

"But Sharpe added that oriental societies that traditionally eat a soya-rich diet show no signs of reduced fertility that he is aware of."

The danger of isolating a chemical and throwing it on sperm (or any other tissue) is that you are not really mimiking what happens in real life. Compounds work on your body synergistically. I think it's safe to order the Kung Pao Tofu.

2.) Virus trumps gential warts: Enough said.

3.) How much money did they spend figuring out that children should exercise to avoid becoming obese? How on earth could a child not be getting in at least an hour of physical activity per day? Have things really gotten that bad?

4.) Neuron-generating factories : I'm, as always, skeptical about this, but I do like to think about neuron-generating factories.

Keep an eye out for the soy diaphragms and condoms at Whole Foods. I'm sure they're on their way.

Hey, mind if I use " Tofu, Sperm, and Neuron-Generating Factories" on my good names for blogs page?

Yes, things have really gotten that bad. The typical day of a child in the 21st Century:
Get out of bed
Walk to kitchen, eat sugary cereal
Get dressed, get in car, get driven to school,
Sit at desk
Have 15 minute recess
Eat lunch (mmmmm....Lunchables!)
Have 15 minute recess
Sit at desk for 2 more hours
(there is no PE because it isn't in the education budget)
Go home, have Doritos and soda for snack.
Sit in front of TV until dinner (too dangerous to play outside)
Have dinner (mac 'n cheese + 10% fruit juice in sugar water).
Sit in front of computer playing video games
Go to bed.

That's 30 minutes of exercise and 2000 empty calories.

Let's all hold hands and sing "fatty, fatty 2 by 4"

Trisha, you can use any of the things I say as blog titles. I now feel pressured though to come up with better ones.
