  • Polar Bears = North Pole

    Penguins = South Pole.

    The reason there are no Polar Bears at the South Pole is because the Penguins ate them.

    Good heavans, it is simple really.

    PS. Have fun trying to get your Penguin Feet. I will bring the bandages for your soggy remains.

                  Hot Tubs Hurt Fertility, Study Says. Wet Heat Can Lower Sperm Counts, Motility

                  POSTED: 8:41 am EST March 2, 2007

                  Exposure to hot baths or hot tubs can lead to male infertility, according to a new study at the University of California, San Francisco.

                  But the effects can sometimes be reversible, a news release said.

                  "We now have actual evidence to show patients that these recreational activities are a real risk factor for male infertility," said Dr. Paul J. Turek, a urologist who led the study.

                  "These activities can be comfortably added to that list of lifestyle recommendations and 'things to avoid' as men attempt to conceive," he said.

                  Turek said this is the first published study to show that total body exposure to wet heat can impair both sperm production and motility. Previous work showed that dry heat -- such as from a fever -- has the same effect.

                  The study looked at 11 infertile men who regularly soaked in hot water. Nearly half saw improvements in their sperm after they spent three months out of the water.

                  An estimated 7 percent of American couples report that they are unable to conceive a child naturally within one year, according to the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth, the latest data available to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

                  The American Society for Reproductive Medicine estimates that 85 percent to 90 percent of infertility cases can be effectively treated with drug therapy or surgical procedures. Less than 3 percent require advanced reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilization, but those techniques can be costly.

                  The only previously published study to examine this link was performed in 1965, according to the research paper. In that study, 20 men were exposed to direct scrotal wet heat for 30 minutes on six alternating days. The findings showed a temporary decline in sperm production during the treatments.

                  The study appears in the International Braz J Urol, the official journal of the Brazilian Society of Urology.

                  • SOOOH; if I take cold showers and baths will that improve things? Or maybe running around naked with the penguins will do the trick? Kiwi should be in great shape to help conception.
