Cell phones reduce male fertility

A report by Cleveland Clinic researchers holds cell phones responsible for several male fertility problems:
"At the Reproductive Research Center, Dr. Ashok Agarwal and his team observed 350 men undergoing fertility treatment.

"Those men who used a cell phone for more than 4 hours per day had the biggest decrease in properties in sperm especially the count, quality, and quantity of the sperm," Dr. Agarwal said. "They are significantly impaired in these men."

"It's possible an electromagnetic wave could cause damage to genomic material in the sperm or the DNA, causing damage and cell death," Agarwal said".
