Studies continue to document how wireless radiation exposure can damage sperm, just as newly-published data reveals a major decline in sperm count worldwide.
The new study, “Electromagnetic radiations on the functional potential of spermatozoa” was published in the Research Journal of Biotechnology. The study found damage to human sperm when exposed to Wi-Fi from a laptop. The deterioration of sperm quality varied according to the duration of Wi-Fi radiation exposure. Sperm damage is one of numerous health effects linked to cell phone use.
This study corroborates numerous studies that have linked Wi-Fi and cell phone radiation exposure to sperm damage.
The authors concluded that, “the present study on the impact of radiations from a laptop upon the functional mechanism of spermatozoa confirmed that operating the digital devices without precautionary measures and distance interferes with fertilizable ability of the sperms that may end in infertile marriage. The present users of laptop or other digital devices must be cautious about the possible fertility problems from such devices.”
The Environmental Health Trust recommends that you keep laptops off of laps and that you keep cell phone out of your pant pockets. It is best to use corded ethernet connections instead of Wi-Fi to reduce exposures to wireless radiation. Learn more about ways to reduce your exposure to wireless radiation here.
