The quality of the sperm can be affected because of Cellphones

The researchers from America have proved that the cell phones may decrease the quality of the sperm.According to the lead researcher Ashok Agarwal ,Director of the Center of Reproductive Medicine says that”Because of the  proximity of cell phones to the testes in pockets, there may be significant decrease in the quality of the sperm.So in order to prove this ,a small study has been made.A 32 men’s semen were taken as samples and divided into two groups, namely test group and control group.The semen that were kept under test group was exposed to cell phone radiation at a frequency of 850 MHZ which is the commonly used frequency for cell phones and on the other hand the semen under control group was kept in normal room temperature.After one hour that semen were tested.The results say that”there has been  an increase in oxidative stress such as a significant increase in free radicals and oxidants and a decrease in antioxidants. Agarwal says that equals a decrease in sperm’s quality, including motility and viability. Evidence of oxidative stress can appear under other conditions, including exposure to certain environmental pollutants or infections in the urinary genital tract.On average, there was an 85 percent increase in the amount of free radicals for all the subjects in the study.Even though many scientists say that cell phones do not cause any harm to genital and and the quality of the sperm.There were many views saying that cell phone could harm but not proved or made any research.This was the first research made and proved that the radiations could decrease the quality of the sperm.So it has been advised to people not keep the cellphones in talk mode for long time inside the pockets.
