Why men should NEVER put their phone in their pocket
Despite all the fears about cell phones and radiation, most of us still put our phones in our jean pockets.
It’s easy, convenient, and any bad effects are impossible to see.
But a new study warns there is conclusive evidence that men in particular need to find another storage spot.

A systemic review of 21 research papers on radiation shows phones placed close to a man’s genitals for a prolonged period of time steadily drive down sperm count.
And among the studies, many suggest surviving sperm could be DMA-damaged.
The biological phenomenon is currently under fierce debate since scientists have no way to explain how non-ionizing radiation influences the body.
Without that link, many public health investigators are hesitant to say definitively that cell phones harm sperm.
However, a new review by a team at Australia’s University of Newcastle has collated years of evidence in an attempt to both emphasize the trend, and to identify potential causes.
