– PATRICK KW CHAN Undeliverable: Question? sound effect of country lane []\/\/\/||||||||||Dont you think someone has too much time on there hands? Because back then people used to get stoned and watch movies. They remember a whole different planet thing they saw ; while under the influence. What happens is that it culmivates to the discovery of Pink Floyd dark side of the moon can synchronize to The Wizard Of Oz? And people accually believe it, even though it does kinda synchronize but what how for. In this day and age you will be told : You have way too much time on your hands. Do people still get stoned or take acid to watch movies or tv shows? You dont hear about it much anymore. People can smuggle drugs into concerts, but the other thing. Maybe you dont hear about it much anymore because society has changed. Maybe because the good old fashioned video stores are not there, they went out of business? Something in society has changed. People in there teens and 20s till stopping, used to get together-anywhere-just to get high. What great friends! They are not your friends, they are drug buddies. After the drugs are gone, growing up, or something else happens they are not there anymore. Cool to get together at your house with understanding parents. To get together with friends somewhere else-sometimes to watch movies-or out in public to do drugs. Another group takes over, even if they step up police. But guess what; all those other nights, the cops were not there. Funny how in the old days there were classic VHS videostores

The Causes for Fertility Decrease in the Last Years

It has become evident that the fertility of both men and women is decreasing in an accelerating pace, over the last few years. An increasing number of couples report having trouble getting pregnant, and many of them turn to a fertility clinic, and consult with a fertility doctor about their problem.

There is wide verity of Infertility Risk Factors for Men and Women. Let’s cover a few of them:

Infertility causes For Men:

1.A man may suffer from infertility after having genital infection, or sexually transmitted diseases

2. Exposure to dangerous areas, such as areas with radiation or radioactivity. Also handling dangerous materials such as lead, ethylene dibromine, and vinyl chloride.

3. Smoking cigarettes or marijuana effects the fertility levels of men.

4. Heavy use of drugs and/or alcohol.

5. If genitals are exposed to high temperatures, than fertility may decrease temporarily or permanently.

6. DES taken by mother during pregnancy may cause giving birth to a sterile baby boy.


7. Taking prescription drugs for ulcers or psoriasis

8. Undergoing a hernia repair surgery

9. Having mumps after puberty

And as for infertility causes For Women – woman’s reproduction system is more complex, therefore, woman’s inability to ovulate, conceive, or deliver a child successfully, can come from the following reasons:

1. The age factor is a key player in woman’s fertility. Women in their late 30s are about 30 percent less fertile than women in their early 20s

2. Irregularities with the function of the endometriosis may decrease fertility.

3. All kinds of chronic diseases (lupus, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis or asthma)

4. Hormonal imbalance – can be treated with medication, in many cases.

5. Environmental factors – smoking cigarettes, alcohol drinking, exposure to workplace toxins or hazards.

6. excessive or very low body fat

7. DES taken by mother during pregnancy may effect fertility

8. Sexually transmitted diseases

9. Fallopian tube disease

10. Multiple miscarriages

It’s easy to observe that a few of the infertility factors have increased in the last few decades. For example, many couples get married in their 30s, thus having a statistically increased chance of infertility. Another factor is the increased environmental factors – today’s world is polluted and more toxic than ever, and it affects the fertility or man and woman alike.

In today’s hectic lifestyle, we are also much more stressed out than we were 40 years ago. This is another factor that effects fertility.

To conclude – the modern life style has it’s price when it comes to men and woman’s ability to conceive and bring a child to this world. This trend continues to grow, and some predict that in 100 years most men will be sterile. If we don’t do something to better our world fast, our grandchildren will pay the price.

Marijuana Smoking Is Self-Destructive And Irresponsible / Educational Video. Public domain video, “Keep Off The Grass”. Keep Off The Grass (1969); Public Domain film; Sid Davis Productions. This film is NOT a “Reefer Madness” film, but is actually quite realistic, surprisingly good and thought provoking. One major concern about marijuana is its possible effects on young people as they grow up. Research shows that the earlier people start using drugs, the more likely they are to go on to experiment with other drugs. In addition, when young people start using marijuana regularly, they often lose interest and are not motivated to do their schoolwork. The effects of marijuana can interfere with learning by impairing thinking, reading comprehension, and verbal and mathematical skills. Research shows that students do not remember what they have learned when they are “high”. Some immediate physical effects of marijuana include a faster heartbeat and pulse rate, bloodshot eyes, and a dry mouth and throat. No scientific evidence indicates that marijuana improves hearing, eyesight, and skin sensitivity. Studies of marijuana’s mental effects show that the drug can impair or reduce short-term memory, alter sense of time, and reduce ability to do things which require concentration, swift reactions, and coordination, such as driving a car or operating machinery. Some research studies suggest that the use of marijuana during pregnancy may result in premature babies and in low birth

Anti-Pot commercial: New campaign shows teenagers cannabis side effects

IMHO more like a promotion for weed than a deterrent! A new hard-hitting TV, radio and online FRANK advertising campaign that shows how cannabis can mess with your mind, was unveiled today by the Department of Health. The campaign shows that cannabis can quickly flip from being a talkative and relaxed experience to turning nasty and users becoming paranoid, having panic attacks and being sick. The false perception still exists amongst some young people that cannabis is a safe drug despite the fact that it can produce both immediate and longer-term harms to mental and physical health. Public Health Minister Dawn Primarolo said: “Cannabis is a destructive drug. What can start as a few giggles and being part of the crowd can have serious and long-term health problems. “Young people need to know cannabis isn’t a soft drug. They need to be aware of the risks they’re taking and know there is support for them to get the full facts through FRANK.” Skunk Stronger cannabis – ‘skunk’ – now dominates the cannabis market, making up 80 per cent of the cannabis available on our streets compared to 30 per cent in 2002. In the short term, cannabis use can lead to panic attacks and paranoia. In some, its regular use may lead to later development of psychotic disorder such as schizophrenia. For people with schizophrenia it can worsen the symptoms and lead to relapse. Cannabis use can also damage people’s lungs and affect their reproductive system. There is concern that the recent shift to

Dr. Donald Tashkin Marijuana Lung Cancer Study Pt 1 of 2

Pulmonary specialist and Federal Government researcher from UCLA Geffen School of Medicine finds that marijuana does not cause lung cancer in his study on the effects of cannabis and the lungs. Results of this study are discussed for the first time. If you agree that cannabis should be legal, write a letter to your congressperson and tell them to legalize it! Cannabis was made illegal because the paper industry was split between the hemp and the wood pulp factions. The wood pulp people had more money and won, which caused a negative ripple effect in our society such as the loss of a valuable medicine. Since the prohibition of cannabis began the cancer rates have grown at an alarming rate. Cannabis is used for thousands of purposes and it’s loss of use has caused great hardship to everyone. It is time for truth to prevail and prohibition to stop.

Does Marijuana effect Gynecomastia

Article by Chris Low

Does marijuana cause Gynecomastia? Gynecomastia is a condition where men have over-developed breasts (man boobs). There are various reasons for this and some wonder if marijuana and Gynecomastia are linked. The answer to that is; maybe. Marijuana has been shown to limit the production of testosterone in the system. This could lead to higher levels of estrogen and the development of breast tissue in men that have lower levels of testosterone already or have used the drug for extended periods of time where estrogen is allowed to build up.

However, there are other things that do. Obesity is one common culprit for this condition as well as puberty and hormonal changes in the body. Steroid use is another main cause for this condition. After you stop using steroids your body takes awhile to start producing testosterone again. This lack in the hormone can lead to the development of ?man boobs?. While marijuana and Gynecomastia may be linked; steroids and this condition definitely are.

No matter what the cause, many men are asking how they can flatten man boobs. This condition is not fatal to anything but a man?s self-esteem, ego, and appearance, but that is more than enough to ruin your life. No one wants the embarrassing Gynecomastia condition. It is something that is very hard to deal with and often lasts for quite sometime if not the rest of your life. For those of you who are already suffering, there are natural supplements that you can use to flatten man boobs. Because they are natural there are no side effects to even consider. They are also a lot less painful than considering surgery to correct the condition.

Does marijuana cause Gynecomastia? Possibly, but there are other things that do including some genetic disorders, but most are caused by hormonal imbalances in the body. These hormonal imbalances can be influenced by drugs as well. You can flatten man boobs with supplements and sometimes diets that will naturally level out the imbalance. These options are much better than surgery which will not only be painful, but costly as well. There are also some exercises that you can do; these may be quite simple and can help target the chest area.
