Sperm Killers: Laptops



Can a laptop computer really affect a man’s ability to reproduce? Laptop computers really should not be kept in our laps, radiation from laptop could be frying your swimmers before they have a chance to live a full life.

According to research, laptops increases scrotum temperature; to an extent that can affect the normal production of sperm cells (spermatogenesis). When men use their laptops in their laps instead of on their desks, they may be overheating those male parts, which, in turn, may be damaging their sperm.

In studies, even men who used laptop pads as a buffer between their machine and their man-parts, dangerously overheated themselves within 10 minutes.

Studies also revealed that warming the scrotum more than 1.8 degrees (1 degree Celsius) is enough to damage sperm. So if you’re trying to conceive, leave the laptop on the desk.
