Mobile Phone Radiation Linked to Infertility

More and more young people in their 30s and 40s can’t have children… For men the issue is sperm viability.

I have read many articles on the subject of mobile radiation and its negative health effects. The only reassuring research about mobile usage and neutral health effects has been financed by the industry… As is the case in many fields.

The best source of information I found is the US National Library of Medicine: Among other issues, cell phones have a bad effect on sperm quality. Just type in “cell phone infertility” into the search bar, and you can read articles and research abstracts on the subjects.

If you keep your phone in trousers pockets and/or use your phone a lot (the more the worse) and you are a man, your sperm viability will drop dramatically over time and can lead you infertile!

One observational study from 2007 on 361 men showed: “Use of cell phones decrease the semen quality in men by decreasing the sperm count, motility, viability, and normal morphology. The decrease in sperm parameters was dependent on the duration of daily exposure to cell phones and independent of the initial semen quality.” (source: And 4G (which is a lot stronger and more intense broadband cellular network technology than the previous 3G) was introduced only in 2008! On top of this, 5G is on it's way...

Another study from 2017 carried out on male Wistar rats demonstrated that: “chronic exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation of cell phone leads to defective testicular function that is associated with increased oxidative stress and decreased gonadotropic hormonal profile.” In plain English: Intensive cell phone usage ultimately leads to infertility! And in this study, the animals were exposed to a maximum of 3 hours/day for 28 days. Imagine an exposure of over 3 hours/day for years…

I could go on and on… There are many studies on the subject. Infertility is just one of many negative effects of mobile phone usage. Of course the WHO (World Health Organisation) and Wikipedia and all governments say it is safe to use wireless technology… The money from this industry is huge. And with it the pressure and lobby, so we all continue using and the money keeps flowing…

Do you still keep your mobile phone in your trousers pockets with all data transfer functions on? I highly recommend you to stop! For your own and your children’s sake!

We have drastically reduced our mobile phone usage. We have a landline where people can call us. We do take our mobiles with us (in our backpack), but on flight mode, occasionally. Just in case there is an emergency. Sms is a better choice than voice calls. No instant messaging! No checking our emails over the phone! No browsing news via our phone in trains!

Life is a lot better, if you lift your view from a screen and start being mindful and present in the moment. So, go ahead, close your phone and start communicating with people around you. Your future self will thank you for it.
