A new study finds that cell phone use may lower a man’s sperm count. This follows three European studies early this year , (in Germany, England and Sweden) by three different research groups that found a significant increase in the risk of brain tumors in cell phone users of ten years or more
The study, led by Dr. Ashok Agarwal of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, looked at the cell phone use of 360 men. Results found that cell phone of spending over four hours a day had low levels of less active sperm than men who used the cell much less.
Non-cell phone users had the highest level and the healthiest sperm while men who talked on the cell phone from two to four hours a day fell in the middle range of healthy sperm.
While Dr. Agarwal would not say the issue was proved he did say the results certainly called for more research. The research was presented at a recent American Society for Reproductive Medicine conference in New Orleans.
