Media: frequent phone conversations declared the cause of male infertility

Men, too often and for a long time talking over the mobile phone, have poorer quality sperm than those who do not devote such conversations a lot of time. It is reported by some mass media with reference to experts from the clinic for the treatment of male infertility in Mumbai.

Scientists asked a certain number of men the question of how much time they devote to the telephone conversations, and compared the responses with information about their sperm. As it turned out, between the number of calls and quality of sperm were observed the inverse proportion. Worst of all the quality was with those men who were on the phone for more than four hours daily — from these respondents the sperm concentration did not exceed 50 million per milliliter, and even among these many sperm were dead or immobile.

Those respondents who were daily dedicated telephone conversations less than four but more than two hours a day, had some of the best quality sperm concentration of sperms in it was about 69 million per millimeter. Finally, those who talked on the phone even less, it reached an average of 86 million per millimeter. According to experts, this may be due to the influence of radio waves, especially emitted by the phone during a call.

It is worth noting that the media, which present information about a recent study did not report whether published his results in any peer-reviewed scientific publication. Moreover, the message does not contain information about how many people participated in the study, therefore, to judge how accurate can be considered the obtained results, is rather difficult.
