Men and Women’s Differences Aren’t Actually Distinct, Confirms Study
According to a new study from the University of Rochester, men and women don't have such distinct psychological characteristics after all. “Although gender differences on average are not under dispute, the idea of consistently and inflexibly gender-typed individuals is,” say study authors Harry Reis, professor of psychology at Rochester, and Bobbi Carothers, senior data analyst for the Center for Public Health System Science at Washington University in St. Louis. "That is, there are not two distinct genders, but instead there are linear gradations of variables associated with sex, such as masculinity or intimacy, all of which are continuous."

Too Much TV May Lower Sperm Count
Watching TV has been linked to lower sperm counts, a new study suggests. All the men involved in the study were enrolled at the University of Rochester in 2009 and 2010. They were asked about their levels of physical activity and TV watching during the previous three months. More than half of the men were of normal weight, and 75 percent were nonsmokers.
