It may be time to take the phone out of your pants pocket, gents. A new study found that the low-level electromagnetic radiation (EMR) that mobile devices emit lowered sperm motility by 8%, and viability by 9%
Do you have a hard time conceiving with your wife recently? Having a low sperm count can contribute to this problem—and the biggest reason of having a low sperm count is something most men do every day!
Fertility experts are warning man that using a mobile for as little as an hour a day is “cooking sperm” and lowering level significantly.
Professor Martha Dirnfeld, of the Technion University in Haifa, said: “We analysed the amount of active swimming sperm and the quality and found that it had been reduced.
The new study shows that having a mobile phone close to the testicles—or within a foot or two of the body—can lower sperm levels so much that conceiving could be difficult.
Fertility expert Prof Gedis Grudzinskas: “If you wear a suit to work put the mobile in your chest pocket instead of close to your testes. It will reduce the risk of your sperm count dropping or dropping so much.”
