Safer bicycle seats today for tomorrow's generation!

This report in the Times about how heavy amounts of bicycling can lead to reproductive health issues, especially in men, is a little bit funny at first, but mostly rather sad and disheartening: Here's a wonderfuly fun and healthy activity that lets you commute, travel and recreate in an environmentally friendly way, and now we have to tell people that it could actually be hurting them in other ways.
I'm actually a little surprised it wasn't written by Times science writer Gina Kolata, who recently has been a messenger of such "everything you know is wrong" articles as "Study Says Echinacea Has No Effect on Colds" (July 28) and "Which of These Foods Will Stop Cancer? (Not So Fast)" (Sept. 27).
