Understanding Infertility

It’s time to start a new category: “Stuff I find interesting” on the web. Part of the reason for this is to expand the variety of topics I explore on this blog. To kick it off, here’s a podcast from WHYY on “Understanding Infertility.” The intro says:

“… Over the past century, reproductive medicine has grown rapidly as a field, from experimenting with artificial insemination to in vitro fertilization. On this episode, we look at fertility (and infertility), and what we have learned about assisting nature. … Richard Sharpe from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland explains the challenges surrounding male infertility, and why we know so little about this issue. …”

I’d like to know what you thought of this podcast. Please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks.

      I have edited out nearly all of your comment. The reason is, first, they were not pertinent to the post, and second, they were totally unsubstantiated, scurrilous claims. As the owner of this site, I have to be careful that I don’t allow irrelevant content. As a 1st Amendment fundamentalist, I believe you have the freedom to write whatever you wish on your site but not on my site. Thanks.
