2. U.S. Military will start freezing soldiers' eggs and sperm The U.S. government is starting a two-year pilot program that would give soldiers extra pay in exchange for letting the women freeze their eggs and the men, their sperm. This is in line with the goal to put off starting a family, and prevent military enlistees from leaving their service to start a family. It is also said to give the soldiers "additional peace of mind". Having their eggs and sperms kept means a genital injury wouldn’t keep soldiers from having a baby. (yahoo.com)

5. Colombia reports 3,177 cases of pregnant women with Zika virus but zero microcephaly Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos said that unlike in Brazil, there is no evidence that the Zika virus causes microcephaly in babies -- at least in his country. However, there were already three people who had died of the paralyzing Guillain-Barre syndrome they attributed to cases of Zika. While the link between Zika and microcephaly has not been confirmed, it has helped promote awareness on the diseases. Like in all countries where Zika is active, a medical-scientific team will help investigate the mosquito-borne virus. (mashable.com)
