Having Lots Of Children Is Bad For Your Health
U.S. researchers have figured out that having too many children is bad for your health. They had to do "research" to find this out?? The physical demands on your body from childbirth and pregnancy could do you in right, off the top. Not too mention all the time you spend running around after your children and working extra to make sure they are clothed and fed.
US researchers looked at 21,000 couples living in Utah between 1860 and 1985, who bore a total of 174,000 children.
174,000 children?? Do the math each couple is responsible for producing 16.6 children.
It was found the more children couples had, the worse their health and the more likely they were to die early.
The women in Utah need to meet the women I know. They have two or three children and then enjoy all that life has to offer with them. Their husbands are healthy, happy and don't need to work 80 hours a week to support their families. It's okay just to have a few children. One state does not need to be responsible for re-populating the whole nation.
