(NaturalNews) Storing your cellphone in your pants pocket might be killing your sperm, and it might also explain the global drop in sperm count due to exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic radiation emitted by your cellphone, a new study suggests.

Researchers at the University of Exeter in the UK found a small but consistent drop in sperm quality in men's sperm that had been exposed to cell phone radiation. This finding could throw some light into understanding the global drop in sperm count.

Studies indicate that approximately 14% of couples in industrialized countries experience difficulty conceiving. Male infertility is believed to be responsible in approximately 40% of cases.

10 studies analyzed

The team, headed by Fiona Matthews, Ph.D., analyzed 10 studies comprising 1,492 total samples and ranging from lab studies with sperm samples to observational studies. Dr. Matthews found that, in both types of studies, exposure to RF radiation from mobile phones was associated with an average 8.1 percent reduction in sperm motility and an average 9.1 percent decrease in sperm viability.

Other studies on male sperm

A 2011 review of studies on cell phone radiation and male fertility by Catania University researchers concluded that sperm exposed to RF radiation in a laboratory experienced decreased motility, morphometric abnormalities and increased oxidative stress. Decreased motility indicates sperm's reduced ability to move toward eggs. Morphometric abnormalities indicate that the sperm have an abnormal shape or form. Oxidative stress is cellular damage caused by free radicals, which is linked to many diseases, notably cancer.

Non-ionizing does not equal non-dangerous

Mobile phones emit a form of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) called radio frequency, or RF, radiation at a frequency of between 800 and 2,200 MHz. Although termed non-ionizing radiation, this does not mean that this radiation is not dangerous. It simply means that it does not have enough energy to break electrons from molecules. Nevertheless, this radiation is absorbed by the human body and there is much evidence pointing to diverse adverse biological effects.

Diverse adverse biological effects

Electromagnetic radiation of the type emitted by cell phones is linked to a long list of adverse biological effects and illnesses, including:
  • Cancer
  • Brain tumors
  • DNA damage
  • Heart attacks
  • Suppression of the immune system
  • Tinnitus
  • Depression
  • Miscarriages and infertility
  • Suppression of the immune system
  • Arthritis
  • Rheumatism
  • Skin problems

Cell phones don't belong in pant pockets

Dr. Matthews, the author of this new study, 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."
