The Cell Phone Attack

(Thanks to www.techfreep.com for the photo.)

Are you setting off to NPRA with yours clipped to your ear, slung on your hip or tucked away in your jack sack? Do you take part in the synchronised switching on of cell phones as soon as your plane has landed? Does your cell phone accompany you to the bathroom and bedroom, and vibrate comfortingly throughout every meeting?

Maybe it’s time to think twice about your constant companion, because new research shows that male heavy cell phone use is linked to significantly lower sperm counts. The study by the Cleveland Clinic, and published in “Fertility and Sterility” (another Elsevier publication), states that the more men used a cell phone, the lower their sperm count and quality was.
