Written by

A new report from Argentinian scientists states that electromagnetic radiation in a laptop's Wi-Fi connection could take the swagger out of sperm.

"Use of laptop computers connected to internet through Wi-Fi decreases human sperm motility and increases sperm DNA fragmentation"

The thought-provoking article, published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, is the culmination of a study conducted by Conrado Avendano, a biochemist working for the Nascentis Center of Reproductive Medicine in Cordoba, Argentina, in conjunction with a group of medical professionals.

The study found that semen from 29 donors placed for four hours in room-temperature petri dishes 3 centimeters from a laptop actively connected to Wi-Fi showed "a significant decrease in progressive sperm motility and an increase in sperm DNA fragmentation."..
