Laptop Heat and Male Infertility

Don't Let Daddy's Laptop Lead to Infertility

I bet the Duggars don't use laptops. 'Cause if they did, they might not be at 18 and Counting. I crave the heat my laptop emits on a chilly night at home, but there is reason to believe it may not be worth the warmth it provides...especially in men. Studies have shown that a man's scrotal temperature can rise about five degrees when balancing a computer on his lap. That may not sound like a reason to get up in arms but other studies found, "Sperm concentration dropped by 40% when median daytime scrotal temperature rose by one to two degrees Fahrenheit (or one degree Celsius)."

Ladies who want more babies better tell daddy to take it easy on the laptop or use one of these nifty lap desks to protect their family jewels.

This is interesting. I never really thought about it. ~~~> Also, I agree with you two. No one needs to be reminded of the Duggars.
