Most of their science stories are simply face-palm material but occasionally they produce unintentional works of comic genius.
Today, is one of those days.
Teenage sex ‘leads to bad moods’ in later life’
Having sex during teenage years could lead to bad moods, changes in brain development and smaller reproductive tissues, according to scientists.
Researchers from Ohio State University College of Medicine found that these changes can occur because the sexual experience is taking place while the brain is still developing.
Study co-author John Morris said: ‘Having a sexual experience during this time point, early in life, is not without consequence.’
The researchers based their conclusions after studying the behaviour of hamsters after they engaged in sexual activity.
