tweet Male Fertility - Classroom Board

In a new study at the Copenhagen University Hospital in Denmark, reported in the British press, researchers have claimed that toothpaste, sunscreen, soap and other everyday products could be behind a drop in male fertility, finding a direct link between common man-made chemicals and a decline in the potency of human sperm.

Everywhere you go, tattoo shops are springing up and whenever you see bare skin (weather permitting) the chances are that a tattoo will be on display. In fact, I have written about tattoos before but in rather a tongue-in-cheek way. But with this modern trend, we need to be more serious and ask whether there are problems that can arise when tattooing? Are there any health concerns to consider? It would seem that there are. If people want to tattoo their bodies, ...

Lipstick has been getting a lot of bad press lately. But if you are a woman who enjoys wearing make up and feels more attractive and confident when doing so, giving up lipstick may not be an easy step to take. What is the problem with commercial lipsticks? Basically, heavy metals. Many well known commercial lipsticks and lip glosses contain lead, cadmium, chromium, aluminum and five other metals according to a very recently published study by researchers at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health.

This stalky, grassy plant with its lemony scent grows in many tropical or temperate climates, especially in Southeast-Asia, and is aptly named Lemon Grass. You can grow it elsewhere too – we had a prolific plant in our street garden in Cape Town and it grew so well, providing good cover and habitat for birds and chameleons, that we had to cut it back from time to time when it started to dwarf everything else in the garden. A common ingredient ...

These can cover the full spectrum from bizarre to downright ridiculous – I worked with a pregnant colleague once who would chew on kitchen sponges (those ones with a rough texture on one side for cleaning pots and pans) and I never really understood why. What are the reasons behind these cravings? Although no one can really pin point ...
