Experts say: deny the obese fertility treatment

Nearly half (47%) of UK fertility experts believe that in vitro fertilisation (IVF) should be conditional on lifestyle factors, denying the overweight and smokers treatment.

This finding comes as part of a survey of IVF experts' attitudes to some of the big topical controversies in their field. The survey has been conducted by the British Fertility Society (BFS) to mark the 30th anniversary of the birth of the first IVF baby, Louise Brown, which falls on 25 July 2008.
