MOBILE PHONES AND MALE FERTILITY:
CONCLUSIONS from Scientific Papers 2002-2007 Alfonso Balmori, Biologist. Spain
"Our data suggest a decreased motility of rapid progressive spermatozoa caused by electromagnetic waves of GSM-mobile phones. These findings may have an impact in counselling subfertile men."

"This study suggests that while RFEMR does not have a dramatic impact on male germ cell development, a significant genotoxic effect on epididymal spermatozoa is evident and deserves further investigation"
"The prolonged use of cell phones may have negative effects on the sperm motility characteristics."

"There are many animal studies that show that electromagnetic waves have a wide range of damaging effects on the male reproductive system and sperm parameters."
"These data suggest that EMR emitted by cellular phone influences human sperm motility. In addition to these acute adverse effects of EMR on sperm motility, long-term EMR exposure may lead to behavioral or structural changes of the male germ cell."
"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."
"In the analysis of the effect of GSM equipment on the semen it was noted that an increase in the percentage of sperm cells of abnormal morphology is associated with the duration of exposure to the waves emitted by the GSM phone. It was also confirmed that a decrease in the percentage of sperm cells in vital progressing motility in the semen is correlated with the frequency of using mobile phones."
"These results suggest that carrying cell phones near reproductive organs could negatively affect male fertility."
"Although previous studies suggested a role of cell phone use in male infertility, the mode of action of EMW emitted from cell phones on the male reproductive system is still unclear"
Final question: When the physicians will notice of this?
