Increasing research being carried out in the field of cell phones radiation and its effect on humans has revealed that cells phones can cause male infertility. This new research that has been carried out at Cleveland Clinic in Ohio used 361 infertile men and studied the effect of cell phone usage on their sperm count in an effort to understand male infertility. The study revealed that the sectors affecting male infertility such as sperm count, motility and morphology are dependent on the daily exposure to cell phones and that the initial quality of sperm does not affect male infertility factors.
The study has also stressed on the need to conduct further researches that will confirm the effect that cell phones have on male infertility. It also says that cell phone users need to keep in mind the number of hours they use cell phones and on the cell phone’s spontaneous absorption rate (SAR). SAR measures the amount of radio frequency radiation that the body absorbs. A cell phone with a SAR of less than 1.6 watts per kilogram is recommended for use. This value has also been approved by the Federal Communication Commission. The study has also confirmed that although there is conclusive evidence to prove that overexposure to radiation emitted by cell phones can cause brain cancer; there is no such evidence that has been found with regards to testicular cancer.
With the increased availability of cell phones services and rising demand, we are now at a catapulted risk of electromagnetic pollution. High energy radio frequency waves have a telling effect on the human anatomy and it also possesses the potential to cause male infertility.
