The Cleveland Clinic has investigated the effect of cell phone usage to semen quality. The study was consistent with previous studies conducted in 2006, 2005 and 2002.
The study included three hundred sixty-one men who were divided into four groups according to their active cell phone usage: Group A = no use; Group B = less than 2 hours per day; Group C = 24 hours per day; and Group D = more than 4 hours day.
Mean sperm motility, viability, and normal morphology were significantly different in cell phone user groups within two sperm count groups. The laboratory values of the above four sperm parameters decreased in all four cell phone user groups as the duration of daily exposure to cell phones increased.
The study concluded that 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.
