L. Andelman By Dr. S.L. Andelman Are you safe from tuberculosis because you’re too old or too young? How about your children? How about your parents? Here are some facts about TB at different ages.

LAFF - A - DAY Report Links Marijuana to Decrease in Male Fertility BOSTON (AP) - Men who smoke large amounts of marijuana run the risk of decreasing their fertility, according to a report co-authored by noted sex researcher William H. Masters. The report, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, was based on tests on 20 men who smoked from five to 18 “joints” a week for 18 months or longer. It showed that seven of those tested had noticeably decreased sperm counts. Researchers also found that blood levels of the sex hormone testosterone averaged 44 percent lower in the users than nonusers, and that two of the chronic smokers were impotent “apparently in association with marijuana use.” The report said one of the two who were impotent returned to normal sexuality within two months after he discontinued marijuana use, but the other declined to give up using marijuana. The study warned that the results should be taken cautiously because of the small size of the sample, lack of data on the potency of the marijuana and because it was impossible to measure hormone levels and sperm counts of the men before they started using marijuana. The test subjects were 18 to 28 years old and were compared with 20 similarly healthy men of the same age who did not use marijuana. The study said both sperm count and testosterone levels seemed directly related to the amount of marijuana used. Subjects averaging more than IO marijuana cigarets weekly had significantly lower testosterone than less chronic users. The hormone finding is of particular significance, the researchers said, because numerous other research findings indicate that a lack of testosterone at critical points in the development of the male fetus can cause sex organs to develop improperly and later cause permanent hormone imbalance. The researchers said it would be “judicious” for women to avoid marijuana during the first three months of pregnancy since it has been shown that marijuana ingredients can pass from the mother to the fetus. They also said claims that marijuana heightens sex drives and performance probably should be reassessed. By Oswald & James Jacoby There is nothing wrong about swindling your opponents provided you do it honestly. Thus, you are not supposed to hesitate when you have no problem, but there is no stigma attached to fast play, when you do have some sort of problem.
