Are You Microwaving Your Boys?

Texting while driving is not the only danger posed by cell phones.  A research team led by De Luliis at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Biotechnology and Development looked at cell phone radiation and its effect on sperm. They found that:

“RF-EMR [radio frequency electro-magnetic radiation] in both the power density and frequency range of mobile phones enhances mitochondrial reactive oxygen species generation by human spermatozoa, decreasing the motility and vitality of these cells while stimulating DNA base adduct formation and, ultimately DNA fragmentation. These findings have clear implications for the safety of extensive mobile phone use by males of reproductive age, potentially affecting both their fertility and the health and wellbeing of their offspring.”

Reactive oxygen species are damaging to the mitochondria – the power generators of the cell.  They appear when the cell is under stress can cause a cell to lose its ability to function.

The above results show the significant difference between the irradiated sperm versus the non-irradiated control group.  Don’t take my word for it, read the article yourself.

Solution: because of a physical property called the inverse power rule, the dose of radiation you receive is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the radiation source.  In other words doubling the distance from your cell phone to the site of sperm generation will decrease your exposure by a factor of 4.  To prevent from microwaving your sperm, don’t keep your cell phone in your pocket.
