Did you all see this article that potentially being less fertile or not fertile at all can make people live longer?

I’m so not sure that I like this news.

  1. Heh. One thing I learned from doing the podcast with the whipsmart Scientist Cristy at Searching for Our Silver Lining (http://searchingforoursilverlining.blogspot.com/) is that a lot of these studies should be taken with a large grain of salt 😉 The random weird, not super scientific studies and odd tangents are latched on to by a lot of media without fact checking. I’m guessing this might be one of those?!
