Is It Bad To Have A Cellphone In Your Pocket? A Laptop on Your Lap? If You're Worried about Sperm and Infertility, YES.

Men! Do you think about it? That Laptop On Your Lap, That Cellphone In Your Pocket . . . And Radiation?

When that laptop with all it's warmth and Wireless EMF is on your lap--do you think about what it could be doing to your body?  I sure do. Purely in a clinical way, of course.

Especially when I saw this news about a disturbing trend when it comes to you and your sperm. A 2017 study analysis found a whopping 52.4% decline in sperm count in men from North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand! That's like taking 40% of the arrows out of your quiver! It's that much harder to hit the target, boys.  So take that laptop off of your lap and read the study here in our research.

Your Fertility: Should A Laptop Be On Your Lap?

According to BioInitiative 2012 "Human sperm are damaged by cell phone radiation at very low intensities in the low microwat." The trend isn't good and and the trajectory for change isn’t looking hopeful This decrease is noteworthy because sperm count is a necessary step in identifying male infertility. It is likely that this decrease in sperm count over the past few decades is a direct result of today’s modern environment and its effects on male health—cue technology--specifically Magnetic Energy, wireless radiation and heat.

How much sperm do you need?

Well this decrease is noteworthy because sperm count is a necessary step in identifying male infertility. It is likely that this decrease in sperm count over the past few decades is a direct result of today’s modern environment and its effects on male health—cue technology--specifically Magnetic Energy, wireless radiation and heat.

Is It Bad To Keep A Cellphone In Your Pocket?

Way back in 2007 a study was performed that measured the effects of cell phone usage on semen quantity and quality. The study was purely observational; 361 men undergoing infertility evaluation were divided into four groups according to cell phone usage. From there, the sperm count, motility, viability, and normal morphology were measured against each group’s cell phone usage.

The result: a statistically significant correlation. “The use of cell phones may adversely affect the quality of semen by decreasing the sperm counts, motility, viability, and morphology, which might contribute to male infertility.”

Coincidentally, a friend of mine and her husband are trying to have a baby and her husband was advised by their Doctor to stay away from the jacuzzi due to the heat, and more importantly keep his cellphone at bay and out of his pant pockets. 

WiFi EMF Radiation and Lowered Sperm Count

WiFi also emits the Electromagnetic Radiation and a new study out of Hong Kong found WiFi exposure killed sperm.

The Japanese study, done between August and November on 51 men,  showed that prolonged exposure to the waves from Wi-Fi devices lowered male fertility.

Sperm samples were taken from them and split into three groups - one whose samples were not exposed to electromagnetic waves from a Wi-Fi router, one whose sperm were protected by a small shield that intercepted the waves, and one whose sperm were fully exposed to the waves.

Ms. Nakata, who specializes in embryology and spermatology, said the sperm samples were placed near a pocket Wi-Fi router, in the way that a mobile phone would be carried in a man's trousers.

". . .There is mounting evidence that the effects of electromagnetic waves on sperm may be having a significant effect on human reproduction."

RESEARCHER KUMIKO NAKATA, from the Reproductive Medicine Research Centre at Yamashita Shonan Yume Clinic.

The sperm were exposed to electromagnetic waves from the Wi-Fi router for lengths of 30 minutes, 60 minutes, two hours, and 24 hours. Sperm motion was then tested.

While there was little difference in sperm motility rates among the different groups after exposures of 30 minutes and 60 minutes, the study found that the longer the exposure, the lower the sperm motility rate and the higher the death rate.

Recently, Devra Davis and the Environmental Research Trust studied the research to determine the process of how wireless energy and magnetic energy could effect men's bodies.

Our results indicate that exposure to RF-EMF produces increases in testicular proteins in adults that are related to carcinogenic risk and reproductive damage. In light of the widespread practice of men carrying phones in their pockets near their gonads, where exposures can exceed as-tested guidelines, further study of these effects should be a high priority.”

The Way Laptops and Phones are used could be a contributing factor to why many couples are unable to have a baby.

So What's The Tech Wellness Way For Men?

  1. Keep your cellphones out of your pockets.  Look at How Much Greater the Meter Number is up against the phone versus far away
Do not depend on Phone or Laptop Cases with Shields or Filters!  This Video Demonstrates How They Actually Do Not Protect You!
2. Keep laptops off your lap. Disable BlueTooth and WiFi when functionality when Not In Use. Bluetooth is powered by RF radiation and WiFi is powered by RF radiation.
3. Stay away from the Dirty Dozen; 12 endocrine disruptors such as BPA and Lead that alter hormones. Make sure none of them are in your products or home. Here’s the full list.
4. Keep Distance Between You and The WiFi.
5. Turn WiFi Off at Night or When You're Not Using It
5. Always check the RF Exposure Information on Apple's website.RF Exposure Information Apple


The bottom line: protect yourself from the dirty dozen and keep cellphones out of your pockets and laptops off your lap—it could make a huge difference for you and your growing family! And, if you must carry it in your pockets then please, please put it in one of these.
