The world's biggest sperm bank is rejecting donations from red-haired and blond men because its stores are full and demand for red or fair-haired children is so low.Cryos in Denmark has reached full capcity of 70 litres of semen and now has a waiting list of 600 potential donors.The company's director, Ole Schou, said: "We reject these donor candidates because we have too many. We have a waiting list of more than 600 donors now on our waiting list with these characteristics. We need is people with brown eyes and or from other ethnicities, races or from for instance southern Europe. More darker in the skin and brown eyed."Schou also claimed that it is not surprising that people from countries outside northern Europe do not want blonde or redhead children."People always search for something similar to themselves specifically the racial and ethnic background," he said.Cryos ships sperm to every part of the world apart from Antarctica and the company is now planning to set up sperm banks elsewhere to cater to different wishes.
