Unprotected Network: Mobile Phones Could Cause Infertility To Men Who Keep Them In Their Trouser Pockets

Mobile phones have become everyone’s best friend and like most of us we take them anywhere and everywhere a new study has found that men may need to re think where they store theirs because keeping them in trouser pockets may be harming their sperms.

Scientists at the university of believe that men who keep their mobile phones in their trouser pockets expose themselves at radiation that harms their sperm count.

According to the research electromagnetic radiation lowered the viability and sperm movement by 8 whooping percent.

Most of the global adult population now own mobiles, and around 14 per cent of couples in wealthy countries have difficulty conceiving.

A team led by Dr Fiona Mathews, of the University of Exeter, conducted a review of the findings from 10 studies, involving 1,492 men.

Dr Mathews said the findings suggest that mobile radiation has an impact on fertility - but said much more research is needed to draw any firm conclusions.


She said: ‘Given the enormous scale of mobile phone use around the world, the potential role of this environmental exposure needs to be clarified.

‘This study strongly suggests that being exposed to radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation from carrying mobiles in trouser pockets negatively affects sperm quality.

‘This could be particularly important for men already on the borderline of infertility, and further research is required to determine the full clinical implications for the general population.’

Sperm quality can be affected in three different ways: viability, or how much of the sperm is healthy; motility, or how well it moves towards an egg; and concentration of sperm cells in semen.

Most men have 50 to 85 per cent of sperm with normal movement. The researchers found this proportion fell by an average of 8 per cent when there was exposure to mobile phones.

The paper, published in the journal Environment International today, found similar effects were seen for sperm viability.

The authors warned that handheld gadgets may be combining with radiation from internet wifi and other technologies to lower fertility rates globally.

They said that ‘cumulative’ radiation from modern technology may be having a ‘cumulative’ impact on sperm.
