Year of the Tiger not a boost for Singapore's low birth rates...

The Year of the Tiger may be the year of empty nurseries in Asia.

Nations in Asia are witnessing record low birthrates that experts warn will eventually leave the region without the workers needed to bolster the economy and pay for social benefits.

And 2010 may be the worst year yet because children born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Tiger are believed to be fierce and bring harm to their families.

The problem is considered so dire that Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has urged couples to be fruitful and not to "cling on to superstitions against children born in the Year of the Tiger." More...

Don't miss:

  1. Singapore women clueless about their own bodies???
  2. A Club Med boost for Singapore's low birth rates!!!
  3. Singapore, rich and prosperous but not enough babies...
  4. Singapore students learn about the birds and the bees!!!
  5. Chinese defy one-child policy and are hiding three million babies a year!!!
