“Stuffing your phone into your pants pocket is a convenient go-to, but for men it could have dire consequences, according to research.
A new study warns that men in particular need to think twice about where they are keeping their mobile device.
A review of 21 research papers on radiation shows mobile phones kept close to a man’s genitals for an extended period of time decreases sperm count.
The studies also suggest surviving sperm could be DNA-damaged.
The findings have baffled scientists who have no way to explain how non-ionizing radiation influences the body.
Without that common connection many public health investigators are not confident to say definitively that cellphones harm sperm.
But a new study, by a team at Australia’s University of Newcastle, has collected years of evidence in a bid to identify the trend and find potential causes.”*
