Low Sperm Count? Blame it on your mobile phones

How many times have we read studies indicating that mobile phones can cause brain / memory related problems? Debates about whether mobile phones microwave radiation can really pose health problems like increased cancer risk, brain tumors, disturbed brain function and other health disturbances keeps coming out. Then there will be another study refuting earlier studies saying that there are no concrete evidence that will support such claims.

Attention all Males, here’s another study that will affect only men who puts their mobile phones in their pockets.

A recent study released by Cleveland Clinic shows pocketing a mobile phone could cause reproduction problems. Scientist Ashok Agarwal said in an interview with CNN that mobile phones inside our pockets may cause infertility due to its proximity.

361 men participated in the study and were divided into four groups : Group 1 don’t use a mobile phone; Group 2 uses a mobile phone for less than two hours a day; Group 3 uses a phone for two to four hours a day and Group 4 who uses a mobile phone for more than 4 hours a day.

And the result of the study revealed that the mean sperm count, motility, viability, and normal morphology among the four mobile phone user groups were statistically significant. And the decrease in sperm parameters was dependent on the exposure to mobile phones.

Other experts are quick to dispute the claims and said that the findings are far from definitive.

I would tend to agree that it’s not true because I always put my phones in my pockets and I already have three beautiful daughters.

God Bless us all!
