NEWS: The family way

Many of us dream of moving out of the city and starting a family, but for most - it is unlikely to happen and we will be destined to be struggling on and off buses and tubes with our screaming rabble!

...or maybe not.

Scientists have given us an extra reason to leave our city dwellings if we are considering getting in 'the family way''.

They have shown in a study in Los Angeles, that over time as the ozone levels have measurably increased over the city so has the sperm count of donors, to the sperm bank, measurably decreased!

Yet another loud bell in my ear that NOW is the time for us all to either down tools and go live on a beach in a hut and have lots of babies (slightly tempting!) or to shout louder to everyone I meet to ALL make small changes to give us all a fighting chance!

Green hugs

An old expression I heard years ago:

When you are born in the country you can't wait to get away to the city and once you are in the city you spend years trying to buy a place in the country.
