A study of 100 men recently published in the journal Reproductive BioMedicine found that men who regularly keep their phones in their pockets tend to have sperm counts over four times lower than the general population.
Professor Martha Dirnfeld, a researcher from Technion University, said, “We think this is being caused by a heating of the sperm from the phone and by electromagnetic activity.”
Researchers also found that sperms counts can be effected even if a guy keeps their phone on nightstand near their beds; instead, researchers suggest guys keep their phones in their chest pockets and charge them overnight further away the bed.
Granted, this should only concern you if you plan on having kids as low sperm counts make it much more difficult to impregnate someone. If you do want kids, you should also consider using silver-threaded underwear to protect your junk from electromagnetic radiation; though we’re curious if radiation also affects sperm’s nutrition, flavor or anti-depressive qualities someone go test 100 men and tell us the results! #HandsOnScience
