* Parents who smoke near the time of conception are more likely to have a daughter. Scientists found that either parent smoking more than 20 cigarettes a day seemed to reduce their chances of conceiving a male (Lancet, 2002; 359: 1407-8).
* The supplement quercetin appears to 'significantly' improve chronic pelvic pain in men. Those given a placebo (sugar pill) had a 7 per cent improvement while the quercetin group improved by 37 per cent (Urology, 1999; 54: 960-3).
*A man who drank up to four litres a day of Earl Grey tea suffered severe cramping in his right foot. The cramping disappeared when he was able to keep his intake below one litre of the tea a day (Lancet, 2002; 359: 1484).
