Do laptops connected to Wi-Fi hurt male fertility?
Men who use laptops with a wireless Internet connection, at least those who work with the computers on their laps, may want to pay attention to a new fertility study.
The study, conducted by researchers in the United States and Argentina, found that sperm placed just more than an inch under a laptop with a wireless connection suffered DNA damage and mobility problems, Mashable reported.
After four hours under the laptop, 25 percent of the sperm samples were no longer mobile and nine percent showed DNA damage, the article said. Only 14 percent of the control samples placed away from the computer became immobile, and they showed little DNA damage.
