How? • erectile dysfunction in men and infertility in women.• decreased sperm count.• delayed or no ovulation• prenatal exposure to marijuana and problems for the childFor couples struggling with conception, smoking weed isn’t a joke; it sends their chances of having a baby up in smoke.In an article published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, researchers say they want doctors and patients trying to conceive to be aware that smoking marijuana might make it more difficult. How?>> THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, acts on receptors in the hypothalamus, pituitary gland and reproductive organs, making it more difficult to conceive.In women the hypothalamus produces gonadotropin-releasing hormone, which leads to a cascade of other hormones needed for ovulation and to prepare the uterus for a fertilized egg. Pituitary problems can contribute to erectile dysfunction in men and infertility in women.>> Another problem: decreased sperm count. A Danish study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology found that smoking marijuana more than once a week reduced sperm count by 29% in guys 18 to 28 years old.>> Marijuana could delay or prevent ovulation if smoked more than three times in the past three months.>> One more caution: Authors of a study called “It’s Not Your Mother’s Marijuana,” published in Clinics in Perinatology, point out that if you’re pregnant and smoke today’s superpowered weed, prenatal exposure to marijuana can result in problems with your child’s executive functioning skills, attention, behavior and school achievement later on.https://www.staradvertiser.com/2019/08/12/features/marijuana-use-may-lower-sperm-count-block-ovulation/
TRINIDAD and Tobago Under-15 coach Russell Latapy cautioned young national players to let their games do the talking following the recent controversy surrounding goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams.Last Friday Williams was critical of the minister of sport Darryl Williams for not acknowledging the achievements of Central FC in claiming a second consecutive Pro League last year.Despite Williams seeming to back track on the comments over the weekend, Latapy, the former national player was far from amused.“For a long time I’ve stood by and listened to some of the younger players voice their opinions regarding the game of football.I would like to share my thoughts, especially, at this time when a player, namely, Jan-Michael Williams, in his lack of wisdom and understanding, can boldly make statements about the Honourable Minister of Sport and the Sports Ministry,” Latapy said.“Firstly, acknowledgement comes with achievement. The type of achievement required to be successful in football is playing at a high level, motivating other players, and building team spirit and camaraderie for your team and country while working tirelessly to be at the top of the CFU and CONCACAF. It is also taking responsibility for your actions and not blaming others,” he added.“Secondly, if you want acknowledgement you do not need to ask for it. Acknowledgement involves playing professionally for an extended period in a league that is considered a top professional league and not just for a few months.”“So kid, my advice to you is: talk less, defend more and I look forward to you being part of a successful national team.” (Sportsmax).
