God’s revenge against mobile phone users
: A scientist says mobile phones reduce sperm counts by 30 percent.
MEN who regularly carry a mobile phone could have their sperm count reduced by as much as 30 per cent.
Those who place their phone near their groin, on a belt or in a pocket, are at greatest risk, new research has revealed.
The findings, to be presented at an international conference this week, are the first to suggest male fertility could be affected by the radiation emitted by mobile phones, also long suspected of causing cancer.
The study by Hungarian researchers found the sperm that did survive exposure to mobile phone radiation showed abnormal movements, further reducing fertility.
But Australian experts advised men not to panic yet.
Or it could just be that guys who wear dorky belt clips for phones get less action.
