Mobile phones making men infertile, say researchers

Reading time: 1 minute

Young married couples who are trying – and failing – to start a family should suspect the amount of time the man is using his mobile (cell) phone, a new study has discovered.
Heavy mobile phone use seems to lower sperm quality and affect fertility – although, paradoxically, also increasing levels of testosterone at the same time.
Researchers from the medical University of Graz in Austria, who made the discovery, think that the phones’ electromagnetic waves interfere with the production of sperm production and fertility by lowering levels of luteinizing hormone, which is secreted by the pituitary gland in the brain.
