According To Experts, Putting Cellphone In Pocket May Cause Male Infertility

Guys, beware!

Guys, beware.

If you’re hoping to have babies soon or are at least planning to have them in the future, you better keep your phone off your pocket.

According to a recent research by the Technion University in Israel, it has been discovered that putting a mobile phone in a pants’ pocket may lead to decreased sperm count.

The study was based on data compiled from 100 men who attended fertility clinic for one year. Researchers said that about 47% of the men who kept their phones in their pockets had lower sperm count.

Other additional factors that may affect a man’s sperm count includes keeping the mobile device near the pillow or on a bedside table plus using the phone while charging it.

A study conducted in the Technion University claims that putting mobile phones in the pocket may lead to lower sperm count.

As study researcher Martha Dirnfield confirmed with The Telegraph:

“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 and by electromagnetic activity.”

Actually, this isn’t even the first study where mobile phone usage has been linked to male fertility.

According to Dr. Paul Shin, a urologist:

“A 2008 study found that men with the highest cell phone usage (more than four hours per day) had significantly lower sperm counts, motility rates and morphology (normal shapes).”

Meanwhile, University of Exeter adds that exposure to low-level electromagnetic radiation emission leads to fertility problems.

Also, a 2014 study by a team led by Fiona Mathews at the University of Exeter in England came up with the conclusion that low-level electromagnetic radiation emissions from mobile phones may lead to fertility problems.

Although further research is needed to confirm that storing cell phones in pants’ pockets indeed causes infertility, experts are suggesting that men instead carry their cell phones in their bags or shirt pockets.

Conflicts Between Religion And Science May Be Due To How The Brain is Structured

The brain may be responsible for the clash between science and religion.

Do you ever wonder why people with solid scientific backgrounds almost always clash with people with strong religious beliefs?

The conflict may be look like it is rooted from a social or cultural norm, but a new study found that it may be wired from the brain.

Researchers at Case Western Reserve University and Babson College investigated on the concept and acknowledge that some psychological researches imply that spiritual people are less smart than others. Funny thing is, these people will almost always accept that and even agree that they are indeed less intelligent....

Bill Gates Backs Waterless Toilet That Generates Energy From Human Wastes

This invention is genius!

Poor sanitation has long been linked to certain diseases such as cholera and diarrhea.

This results to lack of sanitation facilities such as the most basic one, toilets. In poor countries, these diseases are rampant, which is why scientists are doing their best to develop a solution that should help the situation.

The World Health Organization states that 2.4 billion people don’t have access to toilets. Despite the improvement of the percentage of access to sanitation facilities – 68 percent in 2015 versus 54 percent in 1990 – there are still people who defecate in open fields....
