Cell Phones And Sperm Counts

The Cleveland Clinic found an association between cell phone use and sperm quality in a study of 361 men at its infertility clinic — the more time a man spent talking on his cell phone, the lower his sperm count (and the greater the percentage of abnormal sperm). But don’t go making assumptions about cell phones causing infertility, because they found an association, not a cause and effect relationship. However, it does seem as though nature is doing its part to tell us that the type of man who spends four hours on his cell phones every day might not make the best father. [Reuters]
