A recent study found that electromagnetic radiation from the wireless Internet could fry your guyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sperm. Wow, who knew that WiFi is apparently the great white sperm killer?
How did we not already know this?
According to the study, Argentinian researchers placed healthy sperm near a laptop downloading data, and after four hours a quarter of the sperm had died. And 9% of the sperm near the WiFi hot spot had DNA damage. What is going on?
Basically, this study reveals that WiFi cannot only hinder a manÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sperm motility, it can also cause DNA changes, which could lead to abnormalities in the sperm. Its like WiFi has declared war on fertility and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s taken any man on a laptop down.
My husband spends his days working on a computer. Luckily, he also sits at a desk with the desk separating his Ã¢â‚¬Å“boysÃ¢â‚¬Â from the computer and certain death for his sperm.
But what about men who work on their laptops with no desk? What about the dad bloggers? Take note ladies, according to this research, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d better get the man you love a desk and never look back.
Further research was done and heat sensors were attached to the scrotum of 29 men. After 10-15 minutes of working on the laptop, scrotum levels rose to sperm destroying temperatures.
More research needs to be done to make these findings conclusive but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d think itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s safe to say, if you are trying to get pregnant it might be wise to buy your husband a desk to do his Internet surfing at.
Will you let this study affect the way your husband spend his time on the Internet?
