You read the title correctly its Wi-Fi and not your wife that will make you infertile, although that’s entirely possible as well, but that’s for another time.
A 2012 study published in the Journal of Infertility has found that keeping your Wi-Fi- connected laptop on your lap can kill men’s baby-making cells also known as spermatozoa.
As if the harmful UV radiations being emitted from the laptop screens did not do enough damage to your eyeballs alone, now it’s been found that laptops harm your other balls as well. What’s gonna happen next, CD drives that can cut off fingers? Well nobody uses CDs anymore, ha! Take that technology.
The study showed some shocking results, the Wi-Fi radiation was three times stronger than laptops not connected to Wi-Fi and seven to fifteen times more powerful compared to control group.
It’s not pseudo-science and its definitely not a placebo effect because when compared to control their were more dead sperm cells, more DNA fragmentation and less healthy motile sperm cells found in the men who used laptops connected to Wi-Fi.
According to previous research these electromagnetic waves increase the release of free radicals that attack and destroy DNA molecules which results in the destruction of cells.
All jokes aside infertility is a big issue, and despite the advancement in modern medicine, sexual health and fertility is still a big concern for many Americans. In the U.S. laptop/netbook users was found to be at almost 70% of the entire population in 2012, and this number would have gone up significantly in the recent times. Up to 15% of couples are infertile.
Therefore with continued usage and due to the high prevalence of laptop use, the number of infertile men is only going to increase. These problems are not just related to reproduction but can also cause depression, aggression, divorce and breakups.
Well for the sake of your future children stop placing your laptop near your crotch.
