Research suggests wifi risk to male fertility

Argentinian scientists hint at link between use of wifi-connected computers and male fertility levels.

    Experiments by researchers in Argentina have suggested that using wifi-connected laptop computers could affect male fertility.

    In simulated tests, the sperm of 33 volunteers was negatively affected, showing diminished mobility and an increased breakdown of its DNA.

    While tests have yet to be conducted on female subjects, some say the discovery suggests use of the devices could reduce a man's fertility and increase the danger of genetic deformities in affected embryos.
