  1. Common household chemicals causing infertility

    Could TOOTHPASTE be the cure for baby fever?

    I've fought infectious diseases all around the world, but I've never seen anything spread faster than baby fever.

    Because it seems to travel from a woman's ovaries to her brain in an instant. How many gals are figuring out their ovulation cycles to the split second, let alone the day? I've even heard of young ladies standing on their heads after sex to get knocked up!

    Desperate women will try just about anything to get a bun cooking in their oven. And if you fellas are having trouble doing your part, it's not time to switch up your love-making routine or try some New Age chant.

    But it may be time to change your toothpaste.

    Because a new European study has found that your home is LITTERED with chemicals that turn your sperm from a fast-swimming Mark Spitz to a lazy fat kid floating along in an inner tube.

    Scientists from Germany and Denmark just studied how 96 "endocrine disrupter" chemicals in toothpaste, makeup and sunscreen affect a man's fertility. And these chemicals I've been telling you about for years -- like phthalates, mercury, and PFCs -- are killing sperm faster than anything you'll find in the "family planning" department at CVS.

    In fact, about a third of the chemicals tested damaged your sperm's ability to swim. Forget fertilizing an egg -- your sperm are moving like a jammed-up freeway during rush hour.

  2. Tylenol may boost ADHD risk by 37%

    Pill popping moms give babies a headache

    I've always had a theory about folks who say it's better to give than receive -- they've never gotten anything good. I bet their closets are stuffed floor to ceiling with ugly ties and cheap cologne.

    But if you like to haul in gifts -- I'm talking about the expensive stuff -- any gal will tell you that nothing beats having a baby. Something about that growing bump in your belly makes people want to lavish you with big-ticket items.

    There's the oak crib from Aunt Sally... the fancy jogging stroller from your sister... the debilitating disease risk from Johnson & Johnson.

    What, you don't remember that one? Well, you got it -- or at least your kid did. And when you hear what I tell you next, you won't be rushing to send a thank-you note.

    A massive new study has found that if you took acetaminophen, like Tylenol, during your pregnancy, you increased the chances of your kid developing ADHD by as much as 37%! And the longer you took it, the greater the risk.

    Now let me be straight with you. ADHD is the most over-diagnosed condition in America, and it's used by Big Pharma to throw pills at every kid who can't sit still. But for the kids who suffer from serious ADHD, life is a nightmare full of bad grades, bullying, and worse.

    And acetaminophen is no picnic for you either. Acetaminophen is like a cannonball to your liver, and has been linked to hundreds of deaths a year.

    ADHD is one gift you don't want to pass on to your kid. If you're struggling with the aches and pains of pregnancy, give heating pads and ice packs a try. But do your unborn baby (and yourself) a favor of a lifetime and keep that Tylenol in the bottle where it belongs.

  3. Pregnant women in stroke risk

    More women are suffering from more pregnancy complications than ever before -- and a new study finds that the number of strokes among pregnant women has doubled in a little more than a decade.
  4. Big Pharma's naked greed on display

    A drug company has taken a treatment used for more than 50 years, slapped a patent on it, jacked up the price 15,000 percent.
  5. Why you can't get pregnant

    BPA, the dangerous chemical used in plastics and cans, is wreacking havoc on your hormones -- to the point where it might even be gumming up your baby-making bits.
  6. Drinking during pregnancy is OK

    British researchers have found that babies born to women who had a couple of drinks a week during pregnancy are no worse than those born to abstainers -- and might even be better.
  7. Omega-3 benefits for premature babies

    A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) claims that the use of omega-3 fatty acid supplements can improve the cognitive performance of kids who were born as preemies.
  8. Kids are having more kids than ever

    For the first time since 1991, the number of teens giving birth has gone up, bucking a long downward trend.
