Carrying you mobile phone in the wrong place can cause male infertility and breast cancer

Mobile phones are 'cooking' men's sperm - Telegraph
Fertility experts are warning man that using a mobile for as little as an hour a day is "cooking sperm" and lowering level significantly.
The new study shows that having a mobile phone close to the testicles - or within a foot or two of the body - can lower sperm levels so much that conceiving could be difficult.
The findings have led to a leading British fertility expert to advise men to stop being addicted to mobile phones.

Gentlemen who use their smartphones for even as little as an hour each day can experience a significant drop in their fertility levels, according to a team of experts in Israel.
In a study featured in the journal Reproductive BioMedicine, Professor Martha Dirnfeld and her colleagues at the Technion University in Haifa, Israel examined how mobile phone use among men can affect their fertility. They monitored the health of more than 100 individuals who attended a fertility clinic for an entire year.
The researchers discovered that men who chose to keep their smartphones in their pockets during the day experienced abnormal levels in their sperm concentration in 47 percent of the cases observed. This is considerably higher compared to the 11 percent of cases in the general population.

Mobile phones may have a significant impact on a man’s fertility, scientists think.
Men who keep a phone in their trouser pocket could be exposing themselves to radiation which lowers their chance of becoming a father.
Scientists at the University of Exeter found that electromagnetic radiation lowered the viability and movement of sperm by 8 per cent.

To arrive at their findings, researchers collected semen samples from 32 men and divided each man's sample into two parts. They placed half of the semen samples 2.5 centimeters away from a 850 MHz frequency cell phone in talk mode for one hour. Most cell phones used in the U.S. are 850-900 MHz. They chose this distance because it is the typical distance between the testes and the trouser pockets.
Previous research from the same group showed that radiofrequency electromagnetic waves emitted from cell phones can impair sperm quality, and the new study shows why this may occur. Semen exposed to radiofrequency electromagnetic waves emitted from cell phones had higher levels of damaging free radicals, lower sperm motility (the ability of the sperm to move and swim) and sperm viability (the percentage of live sperm), and possibly greater oxidative stress, the study shows. There were no significant differences in DNA damage between the exposed and unexposed groups.
"Our findings appear to be in line with other concerns that environmental factors such as toxins, pollutants, and materials used in farming play a role in male infertility," Agarwal says.
