Every time I log myself unto the ERFYBT web site I’m hoping that I will see more male Bloggers (not that I mind seeing all the pretty female ones) …but I’m starting to feel like a minority…maybe I just need to get a bunch of the guys together one night…take a survey of all the blood types before they come over so I have the right foods prepared…. and talk about our health…I think not…but maybe in 100 years it could be a possibility? Why 100 years…well by than I think the females of our species will have much better survival rate (they do already) and more numbers compared to males…and I think the male population will get really concerned and start to talk openly about their medical/physical problems (we males on the whole are all just so tight lipped these days when it comes to our health)…. I just finished reading an interesting book by Devra Davis…When Smoke Ran Like Water: Tales of Environmental Deception and the Battle Against Pollution…. there’s a chapter in the book tilted…”Save the Males”. The chapter goes on to say that the male population over the last 25 years has seen an alarming decrease in sperm count…due to environmental changes (pollution, pesticides…etc…tight jeans?) and due to the lowering of sperm count, the ratio of men to woman has dropped by 10%…apparently a fetus starts off as female and if we don’t have enough of the little guys or the ones that give the egg the right chromosome to change to a male… it stays female. The other day I went to my daughter’s class and was amazed that there were only 7 boys in a class of 18…is my concern coincidental…OK Mike…what’s your point?…my point is this…to all the males reading this…. now is the time to get serious about your health (with the BTD as your catalyst)…especially if you do not have offspring and want to carry on the family name through a male heir.
I myself have a daughter…and as the song goes “thank heaven for little girls”
Side note…went to an Organic food store in Toronto called the “Big Carrot”......…was jam packed with people and I bought $75.00 dollars worth of good food…picked up some organic pumpkin seeds…a beneficial for O’s…good for the prostate too!!
