A cooked sperm is essentially, a useless sperm and based on a recent study, fertility gurus have warned men that keeping mobile phones close to their beloved eggs, and even close to the body can lower sperm level to such extent that siring a baby could become an impossible task.
Reporting this, The Telegraph disclosed that the findings of the new study “have led to a leading British fertility expert to advise men to stop being addicted to mobile phones.”
The findings of this study, as found in the Reproductive BioMedicine journal linked dropping fertility rates in men to the increasing use of mobile phones.
The study as conducted by highly respected specialist who monitored more than 100 men attending a fertility clinic for a year, discovered that sperm levels of men who kept their phones in their pockets were seriously affected in 47 percent of cases compare to just 11 per cent in the general population.
Also, it was found that speaking on a phone while it’s charging, keeping the phone close by, and even keeping them on a bedside table can raise lower sperm cell counts.
A professor identified as Martha Dirnfeld said that in the study, they ” analysed the amount of active swimming sperm and the quality and found that it had been reduced. We think this is being caused by a heating of the sperm from the phone and by electromagnetic activity.
I think this is a warning to men to change their habits to improve their chances of having children. Women generally don’t carry their mobiles on them so maybe a mobile phone won’t affect their fertility. That’s not something we have looked at,” he added.
In line with that, Professor Gedis Grudzinskas, a fertility consultant reportedly commented thus;
Men need to think about their well-being and try to stop being addicted to their phones. 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. And do you need to keep the phone right next to you on the bedside table. Some men keep their mobile in their shorts or pyjamas in bed. Is that really necessary? He asked.
