   Well, I started becoming a beer aficionado about 20 years ago,
and started brewing (and handling hops) about 14 years ago.  I
am glad to report no "droop" problems (as is my wife ;-), and we
had no problem having kids in the past 5-7 years.  There's some
anecdotal counter-evidence for ya.
   I realize this isn't a scientific list, but there sure seems
to be a certain amount of shaky reasoning and distinctly unsupported
hearsay being passed around as proven fact.
