Cell phone Radiation Affects Fertility.
The radiation waves emitted from cell phones are non- ionizing and considered as one of the most dangerous forms of pollution created by technology. These invisible radiation waves cause significant damage to reproductive organs in human beings.
The long hour exposure to cell phones in front and back pocket of trousers impacts the health of testes and quality of sperm in men. Moreover, the close proximity of cell phones to men’s lower halves of the body directly exposes it to Electromagnetic radiation adversely affecting their sperm count.
Keeping the cell phone in front pocket for about 4 hours in a day also increases the count of immature sperms. This can also damage the DNA in men impairing their fertility. As per the reports revealed by Cleveland Clinic Foundation of Ohio (the US), use of cell phones decreases semen quality by reducing sperm count, motility, viability and normal morphology. Moreover, it has been found by several researchers that 14 percent of couples of higher and middle income group face problems while conceiving.
The international institute of population sciences, Mumbai in 2010 released a stark study highlighting the fact that there had been a 30% increase in infertility rates in India in a decadal time frame (2000-10). It also alluded that 1 in 5 Indian couples in their productive prime suffer infertility.
