Cell Phone Radiation Reduces Sperm Count

Heads Up Guys: Your Cell Could Be Reducing Your Sperm Count

We already know that cell phones might be bad for your health, but a new study shows that they could also be bad for your reproductive goals. According to an Italian report in the Journal of Andrology, cell phones could reduce sperm count.

Though scientists haven't confirmed if a GSM or CDMA signal can inflict more damage, the study did show that men who carry their cell in their front pocket show a lower-sperm concentration. Additionally, test subjects exposed to radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation (emitted from cell phones) showed decreases in sperm concentration and motility — the ability of a sperm to move toward an egg. That's concerning for any couple trying to conceive.

How can you combat the effects of cell phone radiation on your man's sperm count? Try a man bag — they're so in right now.
