Whether the frequent use of computers, mobile phones, tablet computers and other electronic products will have an impact on human fertility has been debated for a long time? Now let’s talk about the related knowledge!
Principle: temperature rise can damage testicular spermatogenesis function; in fact, it is not “cooked” sperm
A British man named Wade often uses his laptop on his thigh, causing his sperm to be “boiled” by the heat emitted by the computer and become infertile, according to a recent report. He took the doctor’s advice and put the computer on the table. Three months later, his wife became pregnant successfully. Medical experts point out that the temperature rise can affect testicular spermatogenesis, but whether the notebook can cause infertility remains to be confirmed. On the cautious side, it is not recommended for men to use the laptop for a long time on their thighs.
Testicle warming up 0.5 ℃ is enough to destroy sperm
“The study found that when a laptop is placed on the thigh for 10 to 15 minutes, the computer will generate enough heat to damage the sperm. Even if a cooling pad or pillow is placed on the thigh, the sperm damage will not be prevented,” the report said
Shi Guoqiang, deputy chief physician of Urology Department of Guangzhou Red Cross Hospital, thinks that human is a constant temperature animal, and the normal temperature of testicles is 1 ℃ lower than that of body temperature. Animal experiments have repeatedly confirmed that heat can damage the spermatogenic function of testis, and temperature can affect the quality of sperm, specifically the division and maturation of spermatogonia, the precursor of sperm, but not to the extent of “boiling”. For every 0.5 degree Celsius rise in temperature, testicles will be greatly affected, which may lead to infertility. This effect can be offset by higher temperatures in summer or lower temperatures in winter.
Infertility is only a case
Shi Guoqiang also said that the British men in the report are only a single case, which does not represent the commonness. It is necessary to observe whether there are more similar cases, and the relationship between laptop and infertility needs to be determined by scientific double-blind control experiment. At present, there is no evidence that testicular temperature rise will give birth to deformed children, and has little effect on the erectile function of penis.
However, Shi Guoqiang also suggested that the unborn men should not let the laptop work against the skin for a long time, and it is better to put it on the desktop.
Wi Fi radiation is safe
At the same time, the signal radiation generated by Wi Fi Internet also makes people worry about infertility. Shi said the impact has not been confirmed.
A study in Argentina and the United States published in the academic journal reproduction and sterility last year found that 9% of sperm showed DNA damage after being placed under a laptop computer for four hours, more than three times higher than the control group.
At present, the basic view of the scientific community on this kind of radiation is: “there is no credible evidence to prove that the weak RF signal will have an impact on human health.”
Through the above phenomenon, we can know that for a long time, putting the computer on the leg may cause male infertility, so we will try our best to put the computer on the table in the future!
