Trying for kids? Wifi devices lower your chances, new study shows
A new study has found that exposure to Wifi connections lowers male fertility rates and reduces couples' chances of having children by killing sperm, adding to mounting evidence that electromagnetic waves are harmful.
The Japanese study, carried out between August and November last year on 51 men, is reportedly the first such trial that focuses on the effects of electromagnetic waves from Wifi devices such as mobile phones and home routers on sperm motion and death.
Researcher Kumiko Nakata, from the Reproductive Medicine Research Centre at Yamashita Shonan Yume Clinic, noted that electromagnetic waves have been said to be safe for humans, in terms of health and wellbeing.
But her study showed that prolonged exposure to the waves from Wifi devices lowered male fertility.
