Interesting Fact - Fear

According to researchers at the Emory School of Medicine in Georgia, fear can be transmitted from a father to his offspring through his sperm.

(They have shown that if mice are taught to fear a certain smell this triggers chemical changes in their sperm.These changes then alter the makeup of their children and grandchildren's brains, causing them to fear the same smell.

This could explain my fear of flying, and is bound to open up the whole nature vs nurture debate again.)
