According to new study led by the University of Exeter, Men, who keep a mobile phone in their trouser pocket, could be affected with male fertility.
Studies done under the leadership of Dr Fiona Mathews, of Biosciences at the University of Exeter. They conducted a systematic review of the findings from ten studies, including 1,492 samples, with the aim of clarifying the potential role of this environmental exposure.
In this study, researchers found that the proportion fell by an average of 8 percentage points when there was exposure to mobile phones and similar effects were seen for sperm viability and the effects on sperm concentration were less clear.
The massive scale of mobile phone use around the world, the potential role of this environmental exposure needs to be clarified, said Dr. Mathews.
However, he asserted that this study strongly suggested that being exposed to radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation from carrying mobiles in trouser pockets negatively affects sperm quality.
