    Confused Health Hazard - My wife is ready for children.

    Can Refrigerants harm or affect the birth process?

    I was told by my teacher that most Refrigeration Air Conditioning Mechanics have daughters due to Refrigerants altering the sperm count.

    Is this a true statement?

    Thanks

    You could probably do a poll and see how many guys here have sons.

    Since we vented refrigerants for several decades, there should have been no men born after about 1947.....

    why not ask your instructor where he got such information?

    oh, by the way, hope your instructor is better at teaching hvac than dissimenating medical info.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.
