    WiFi technology may cause a major handicap for men hoping to build a family: sperm damage.

    A team of Argentine scientists led by Conrado Avendano of the Nascentis Center for Reproductive Medicine in Cordoba found that placing drops of semen from healthy men under a laptop connected wirelessly to the Internet kills or maims the little swimmers.

    The scientists reported their findings this month in the medical journal Fertility and Sterility.

    After four hours next to the WiFi-connected computer, 25% of the sperm had stopped moving and nine percent showed DNA damage.

    By comparison, semen kept at the same temperature but away from the computer showed just a 14% drop in mobility and only 3% suffered DNA damage.

    Semen placed under the computer without the WiFi connected did not experience significant levels of sperm damage, the study says.

    Avendano blames the discrepancy on the electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless communication.

    "Our data suggest that the use of a laptop computer wirelessly connected to the Internet and positioned near the male reproductive organs may decrease human sperm quality," Avendano and his team wrote in this month's article, Reuters reports.

    The study is not the first to sound an alarm over the potential of mobile communications technology to undermine sperm health.

    A Canadian study reported last year also found evidence indicating that wireless radiation caused DNA damage in sperm.

    Computers also wreck havoc on semen just by being hot.

    A 2004 American study found that placing a portable computer on the user's lap could boost scrotum temperature by nearly three degrees. Scientists have established that heat damages sperm.

    I believe that scientific studies have also revealed deleterious effects of RF radiation exposure from Wifi in our children cognitive development. How might we better weigh the advantages of installing Wifi in our schools and the health risks to our children? Can we minimize the health risks somehow?
    While most Western bodies have deemed the scientific evidence on health effects inconclusive, many European jurisdictions are choosing to err on the side of caution until more is known. In a resolution in 2011, the Council of Europe recommended that the As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) principle be applied to electromagnetic radiation, fearing “there could be extremely high human and economic costs if early warnings are neglected.” It also condemned the “lack of reaction to known or emerging environmental or health risks and virtually systematic delays in adopting or implementing effective preventive measures.”
