looknrnd saidPlease! This would matter if we weren't all Gay. We don't NEED the sperm unless we must have a "legitimate" child. AND, most gay men are so vain they'd just buy the ball implants if they had to have a testicle removed.
Straight men could care less as they really don't want the responsibility of children and feel they have to get high to deal with their nagging girlfriends/wives.
Sadly, this story has no affect on men in general. I still don't know why people do drugs, including pot, to this very day...but, the least they could do is tell us potheads could get brain cancer so they could actually put a dent in drug use.
What are you doing? Trivializing testicular cancer? Luckily most cases are curable but there are still at least 10% that are caught a bit late and metastasize and can cause more serious damage.
I think you are confusing impotence with testicular cancer, one could kill you or at least make you loose a testicle, the other isn't that bad unless you are trying to get pregnant.
But smoking pot has always been known to be carcinogenic because it is smoke and thus contains Benzo[a]pyrene which is found in ALL smoke resulting from the combustion of organic material and its very carcinogenic but most pot smokers don't smoke enough to really efficiently give themselves lung cancer like cigarette smokers.
Whats interesting to me is the fact that they found that THC actually binds to receptors to endocrine receptors in the testicle. Seriously potheads always blame the government for trying to make pot seem bad and saying its wonderful drug that cures everything but they are just too stoned. the semen analysis department in my lab can always tell a pot smoker because their sperm look like they are chasing their tail instead of swimming straight. None of us really thought that it would cause real damage to the potheads though (otherwise they would have stopped smoking pot themselves)
