Israeli Study: Your Cell Phone is Killing Your Sperm

| |

Our grid depends on this mineral

sperm and egg

Over the years, science has thoroughly documented the global decline in male fertility, which has been ongoing since the 1940’s. Several possible culprits have been blamed such exposure to pesticides, estrogen mimicking chemicals, and sedentary lifestyles. However, a team of Israeli scientists has found another possible environmental cause.

Researchers at Haifa’s Technion- Israel Institute of Technology and Carmel Medical Center, conducted a study involving 106 men who were given a semen analysis. They have found that men who wear their cell phones in their pants pockets, have significantly higher rates of abnormal sperm. 47% of men who stored their cell phones in their pants had abnormal sperm, compared to just 11% for the average male.

But keeping a cell phone near the groin wasn’t the only contributing factor to poor fertility. Both talking on the phone for more than an hour a day and using it while it was charging, was also linked to abnormal sperm counts.

The researchers admitted that their sample size was too small to draw any definite conclusions, but believed that the evidence was compelling enough to warrant a larger study. They recommended that men limit their cell phone usage (especially while it’s charging), avoid sleeping near the phone, and storing it away from the groin.

    The researchers admitted that their sample size was too small to draw any definite conclusions, but believed that spreading fear was a totally fun thing to do.

    Does anyone with more than 2 functioning brain cells believe anything that comes out of the Terrorist State of Israel, anyway?

      Israelis are not the only morons with respect to exposing themselves to ionizing radiation. Ever since military ground people were being roasted by the radar onboard the planes that they worked around, and microwave ovens were being used to “cook” meat inside and outside them, no one seems to have figured out that microwaves are microwaves, and they all cause mutagenic and carcinogenic effects if one is exposed near enough to the radiator, regardless of the power output, if the inverse square law is satisfied.

        A friend of mine’s dad died from that type of brain cancer back in the late 90s

        Actually, most of his crew at Martin died from the same thing, within months of each other. His family thinks it was chemical exposure – the official word is random coincidence. . .

          Just another repetition of history we chose not to remember.

    Well, if they’d like to use mine as a sample, size would definitely NOT be an issue….

    This isn’t really new news. There were studies done in Germany many years ago saying how damaging using a cell phone is for both men and women.
