Great balls of fire!

Mobile phones are cooking men’s sperm


There needs to be a law banning
cellphones in pockets

When FCC guidelines were developed a cellphone was the size of a brick

Times have changed.

The Laws have not.


"That tells me, we must keep cellphones away from the body"

Professor Martha Dirnfeld, of the Technion University in Haifa, said:

We analyzed the amount of active swimming sperm and the quality and found that it had been reduced.

We think this is being caused by

a heating of the sperm from the phone 

Guys, That Cell Phone

in Your Pocket

Could Be Cooking Your Sperm


If you’re like most guys, you have your cell phone stashed in your pocket. It seems like the most sensible place to put it, but beware — it could be slowly poaching your sperm and increasing your risk of infertility.

More and more studies are linking mobile phone radiation to infertility, with some scientists describing it as “cooking” sperm. Infertility already affects one in 25 men, and the proliferation of wireless devices we use — laptops, cell phones, tablets — is causing researchers to start looking into just what’s happening when all that technology sits on our laps.

Mobile phones are 'cooking' men's sperm


Study finds sperm levels of men who kept their phones in their pocket during the day were quite seriously affected

A Cell Phone in a Pocket,

 Did You Know

It Can Reduce Male Fertility

Most people keep their cell phones in their jeans or trouser pockets or clipped to a belt on their waist. While this does make the phone easily accessible, it also affects male fertility.


Given the close proximity of the cell phone and your body, this energy may be absorbed by your genitals. As a result, the sperm cells may change shape and lose their ability to attach themselves to an egg.


An 8% drop in speed may not seem like a huge percentage, but when you realize that cell phones are not only slowing your sperm down, but also killing them, it may be cause for alarm.

Will Keeping A Smartphone
in Your Pocket Affect Sperm Count?

Cell phone & male infertility

Cell phone radiation may negatively affect sperm quality in men by decreasing the semen volume, sperm concentration, sperm count, motility, and viability, thus impairing male fertility. This should be supported by mass media to raise awareness among people regarding the possible health effects of radiofrequency emissions from mobile phones and to minimize its exposure.


Cellphone Radiation Might Be a Draggg on Sperm



Men take note: Storing your cellphone in your pants pocket may result in impaired sperm movement, a controversial new study suggests.

Fiona Matthews, of the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom, said in a statement.

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

Beware men:
Your smartphone could affect your reproductive health adversely


Keeping the cell phone in front pockets for over 4 hours daily is found to be associated with the percentage of immature sperms.


According to a study conducted by Cleveland Clinic Foundation of Ohio (the US), use of cell phones decreases semen quality by reducing sperm count, motility, viability and normal morphology. Keeping the cell phone in front pockets for over 4 hours daily is found to be associated with the percentage of immature sperms. Moreover, a significant change is believed to damage the DNA impairing the fertility in men.



Cell Phones Are "Cooking" Men's Sperm & Making Them Infertile

It looks like it might be time for guys to start carrying their phones in purses, or backpacks, or maybe in a little cap on top of their heads, because new research out of Technicon's medical school in Haifa, Israel, has found that keeping a phone in your pocket delivers a serious blow to a man's sperm count, leaving him less fertile.



Cell phones negatively affect male fertility, new study suggests


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

It's Important to get the Facts Straight

Dr. Carlo, a scientist hired by the cell phone industry in the ‘90s, now believes cell phones are the greatest health hazard of our time.

In his view, there is no question that mobile phones cause terrible health consequences.



Quotes from the  one-sheet I made, it's on my Facebook page,


You can sterilize an entire population by exposing them to

 the same carrier frequency used for cellphone services.

A number of respected fertility clinics report regular mobile phone use contributes to infertility.

A number of countries confirm that cellphones damage sperm and there’s a lower sperm count with healthy donors.
- Dr. Devra Davis, Environmental Health Trust, and Ondokuz Mayis

EMF emitted by mobile phones has a number of well-documented adverse metabolic effects on male and female reproductive systems which leads to infertility.
- Courtney Lynch, PhD and colleagues – Medicine / Obstetrics and Gynecology, College of Public Health

News agency's and universities are reporting, infertility can be caused by cellphones being carried in pockets.  Medical professionals warn us cellphones carried next to the body can cause infertility, and it is written in our cellphone manuals, the FCC tells us to carry our cellphone away from the body. Knowing that inspired me to create


Keep the Phone
Out of your Pocket
A study published in the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery linked cell phone radiation to decreased bone density in the pelvis, and a study conducted by the Cleveland Clinic found

it lowers fertility in men.
