Indian wrestlers qualify for World Cup Championships India has earned a maiden World Cup berth shortly after its best-ever sixth-place finish in men's free style at the World Championships in Budapest, catapulting India to sixth in the rankings behind Iran, Russia,Georgia, Ukraine and the USA.

Report dated 21/09/2013 @ 1:02 PM

One of every two childless couples are infertile : Survey A survey by the Indian Society for Assisted Reproduction has found that 46% of high-risk couples in the age group 31-40 are infertile.

The survey conducted among 2562 respondents and 100 infertility experts from 9 cities revealed the figures, and said more and more younger women are found with poor ovarian reserves, for which there is no explanation, but which is the reason for rising infertility.

In the past women were blamed for infertility, now doctors say the number of cases of infertile men is just as much as women, with stress blamed as one factor that leads to the condition.

Other possible reasons are obesity, smoking, triclosan soaps and deodorants, constricting underwear, soy-based foods, low fat dairy foods, and yes, mobile phones and laptops.
