Mobile phone risk to fertility of men who keep devices in their trouser pocket.

Mobile could phone risk to fertility of men who keep devices in their trouser pocket.

According to the UK’s  Daily Mail  newspaper, men who keep a phone in their trouser pocket could be exposing themselves to radiation which lowers their chance of becoming a father.

Scientists at the University of Exeter found that electromagnetic radiation lowered the viability and movement of sperm by 8 per cent.

A team led by Dr Fiona Mathews, of the University of Exeter, conducted a review of the findings from 10 studies, involving 1,492 men.

Dr Mathews said the findings suggest that mobile radiation has an impact on fertility - but said much more research is needed to draw any firm conclusions.

She said: ‘Given the enormous scale of mobile phone use around the world, the potential role of this environmental exposure needs to be clarified.

‘This study strongly suggests that being exposed to radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation from carrying mobiles in trouser pockets negatively affects sperm quality.

‘This could be particularly important for men already on the borderline of infertility, and further research is required to determine the full clinical implications for the general population.
