Mouse testicles cure for infertility

TAIPEI: Mouse testicles have become a hot seller in Taiwan after five infertile couples conceived successfully by eating dishes containing the sperm-producing organs, a report said. 

The craze took hold after a bulldozer driver in the southern county of Pingtung, identified as Hsueh Ting-fu, and his wife conceived their long-awaited baby about a month ago, the United Daily News said. 

The couple had previously consulted western medical doctors but were not told the cause of their infertility, the paper said. 

Hsueh and his wife first learned that the mouse testicles were helpful to fertility two months ago when they were taken by a friend to a local restaurant to taste a dish made from the organs. 

They then bought some six kilos of raw mouse testicles at the restaurant and ate them daily for more than a month until the wife was diagnosed as pregnant, it said. 

Restaurant owner Lin Chia-ho said four other women had conceived so far. – AFP
