Alcohol during pregnancy impacts fertility of unborn son: Study By Dr Ananya Mandal, MD According to new research a mother alcohol consumption during pregnancy can significantly impact the fertility of her unborn man offspring. The Danish research involved 347 teenagers aged 18 to 21 and discovered that those whose mothers had drunk more than four beverages weekly during pregnancy had one third the sperm levels in comparison to those whose mothers were teetotalers.Wachter interviewed three previous national coordinators for health information technology : the libertarian-inclined David Brailer, who provides such faith in market-driven innovation that he barely believed in the business he was leading; David Blumenthal, the consummate diplomat, whose $30 billion budget was 71,000 percent greater than Brailer’s and who, in precipitating widespread adoption, was arguably the most successful leader; and Farzad Mostashari, the most controversial perhaps, whose hard-series insistence on the importance of Meaningful Use 2 has been broadly criticized. Wachter provides sympathetic airing to each but is unsparing about the overreach of MU requirements . So why focus on meaningful use instead of interoperability? Some generous explanations: As Blumenthal notes, there can be no interoperability without operability.
