Sitting with a computer on your lap and the cell phone in your pocket on your hip or over your heart may effect your health and your ability to reproduce.
When the temperature in your upper leg area rises it may effect the quality, viability and numbers of sperm.of your nether regions.
In the journal Fertility and Sterility, short of putting your laptop on a desk, researchers found no way to protect the sexual organs..
The researchers hooked thermometers to the scrotums of 29 young men who were balancing a laptop on their knees. They found that even with a lap pad under the computer, the men’s scrotums overheated quickly. After one hour, when a laptop is held on your knees, sitting still with your legs closed. men’s testicle temperature had risen by up to 2.5 C.
A lap pad kept the computer cool and also made sure less heat was transmitted to the skin. But it didn’t do much to cool the testicles, and might give “a false sense of security,” according to Dr. Yefim Sheynkin, a urologist at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, who led the new study.
“Within 10 or 15 minutes their scrotal temperature is already above what we consider safe, but they don’t feel it,” he added. Under normal circumstances, the testicles’ position outside of the body makes sure they stay a few degrees cooler than the inside of the body, which is necessary for sperm production. The body is designed to protect the testicles’ position outside of the body to sure they stay a few degrees cooler than the inside of the body, which is necessary for sperm production.
Earlier research has shown that warming the scrotum more than one degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit) is enough to damage sperm.
According to the American Urological Association, nearly one in six couples in the US have trouble conceiving a baby, and about half the time the man is at the root of the problem.
Many factors influence reproductive health including genetics, lifestyle, nutrition, drug use and this up and coming factor heat and radiation effects from cell phones and cell phone towers.
Using computers, cell phone or living too close to cell phone towers can increase damage to living cells, increase sleep problems and malignant tumors and ADD and ADHD symptoms, fatique and decrease overall well being.
The solution is protection, healthy diet and placing cell phone towers at a safe distance from communities they are serving.
