Can laptop computers and WiFi damage male fertility?
This is a good question. Sperm counts have been dropping worldwide for the last 100 years and scientists remain baffled as to all the reasons. In a recent study from Argentina scientists have shown that ejaculated sperm from 15 men showed damage to both the swimming ability and genetic integrity after exposure to a laptop computer connected to WiFi. The study was small and experts have warned that other factors could explain the damage seen in the sperm. At present we advise men to avoid having laptop computers on their lap. Apart from potential damage to sperm the heat generated underneath the laptops caused significant heating in testicles which is thought to reduce sperm quality.
