Dear Dads and Dads-to-Be,
Father’s Day is a great time for a little independent thinking.
If we really love you, if we really hope to celebrate lots of fun Father’s Days with you, we’re best to ignore this rather foolish study that tells us you can do yourself in, drink and smoke and fill up on junk food and the baby seed you plant will be just fine in spite of it all.
Notice the wording: Lifestyle advice “could delay other options.” Don’t waste your time getting healthier when you can spend $30,000 on IVF/ICSI combo? If you do your research you’ll discover that ICSI comes with a chance of passing on your “infertility” to your sons. But who can worry about that?
Another study and another beautiful example of why we must conduct our very own research.
Here’s to my Dad, as I remember his belly laugh, his singing, and his irresistible humanity. He was a master at doing his own thinking. If he had not learned to do so, I don’t think I’d be here today.
Happy Father’s Day to all, drink your vegie juice Dads, your son and daughter will be glad you did!
P.S. On August 15, 2012 a brand new study was released that tells us food actually does affect sperm morphology and semen quality in general.
