Study Shows Cell Phone Exposure May Affect Sperm Quality In Men

penah dgr cite camni dulu2, cuma tak sure how accurate this is..so sesapa yg belum kawin tu please take note hehe

Cleveland, OH (AHN) - A small study suggests that the radio-frequency energy released by cellphones decreases sperm quality in men. Researchers from Cleveland Clinic in Ohio have warned against keeping cellphones in a man's pocket or on his belt saying it may affect sperm quality if they're turned on.

By keeping cell phones in their pockets, men are exposing their testicles to damaging radiofrequency electromagnetic waves. Even the Bluetooth devices, which are commonly used by many people because of health or safety concerns, may not always be safe due to the proximity of the phones and the exposure that they are causing, researchers say.

Lead researcher Ashok Agarwal, head of the andrology laboratory and the director of the Center for Reproductive Medicine at the Glickman Urologoical and Kidney Institute at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio collected semen samples from 32 men and divided each man's sample into two parts.

They placed half of the semen samples 2.5 centimeters away from a 850 MHz frequency cell phone in talk mode for one hour, the same distance between the testes and the trouser pockets.

Semen exposed to radiofrequency electromagnetic waves emitted from cell phones had higher levels of damaging free radicals, lower sperm motility, lower sperm viability and possibly greater oxidative stress than the non-exposed semen, the study shows.

However, there were no significant differences in DNA damage between the exposed and unexposed groups and researchers say further study is needed to validate the findings. The findings are published in the journal Fertility and Sterility.
