Does Your Wi-Fi Wipe Out your Sperm?

December 22, 2011

If you are a man and if you are worried about infertility, don’t try to Google the term “infertility” with a computer on your lap. A new experiment suggests that heat and\or radiation from a single Wi-Fi enabled laptop may be strong enough to cause cell damage in sperm. Researchers took samples of ejaculated semen and left them directly under a computer-stimulating holding a laptop directly above the male genitals. Within 4 hours, 25% of the sperm stop swimming, and 9% showed signs of DNA damage. A control group of sperm stored at the same temperature, but away from a computer, showed much less degradation. It is suspected that electromagnetic radiation in wireless devices positioned near the male reproductive organs may decrease human sperm quality.

 

Bottom Line:  So, if you are trying to have a baby, use your desktop and not your laptop.
