Technology Is Killing Your Sperm

Sure, you are "connected" all the time and are a social butterfly that could score at any moment. But when it comes to making babies, all that connectivity may be reducing your odds. Recently, Huffington Post published a quick article that Wi-Fi was the latest thug to bully your sperm count. While reading the article, it felt like deja-vu all over again—same threats, different device. A quick Google search (which probably does not harm your sperm but instead catalogues each one and ranks them according to relevant keyword) brought me 3 other threats to your wiggle worms of the technical sort. Why are we being punished and being made to chose between gadgets and kids? Can't we have it all?

Wi-Fi is sourrounding your swimmers

Cell phones are attacking from the left, or the right, depending on which pocket you keep your phone

Laptops are burning your scrotum

  1. I've gotta admit, when the wifey and I decided to start trying for a kid, I was a little concerned. I work in technology, around laptops and monitors and servers all day. In my free time, I ride my bike... a lot... somewhere around 10hrs a week in the summertime.

    All that being said, I knocked it out of the park on the first try. Just goes to show that even with all these studies, the elite swimmers will find a way.
