Hot laptop computers may give your SPERM A COLD SHOWER
Men sit with a hot computer on their laps for hours every day. They may reduce their chances of becoming fathers.
A recent US study of 29 men showed that a combination of the legs-together posture needed to balance a computer and the heat generated by the laptop raised scrotal temperature by up to 2.8 degrees.
Links between increased testicular temperature and lowered fertility have been well documented. Previous studies suggest an increase of just one degree is enough to suppress sperm production, with would-be dads often advised to avoid hot baths, saunas or wearing tight pants.
Researchers now plan to test how exposure to laptops affects sperm quality and for what duration.
LAUGHTER, THE BEST MEDICINE
A couple are debating whether computers are male or female. “Definitely female,’’ said the husband. “You spend half of your salary on accessories for them and even the smallest mistakes are stored in their long-term memory for use at a later date.’’
“Nope,’’ said his wife. “they’re male. To get their attention you have to turn them on. And as soon as you commit to one, you realize you could have got a better model if you’d waited longer.’’

The calming Garden
Choosing the right plants will give you a garden that can help you De-stress. Sweet marjoram and lemon balm are said to be good for cheering you up. Mint is cleansing and invigorating.
Lavender is a soothing addition to the bath or pillow. Chamomile and fennel are good for aiding digestion and a restful night’s sleep, as an infusion or in a herb pillow.
To infuse, use whole leaves, fresh or dried (dried has a milder taste), and brew as you would a pot of tea for five minutes (less for lavender). Sweeten with honey if desired. Make sure you have correctly identified the variety. (laptop LAUGHTER Garden)
