EXETER, UK (June 11, 2014) — A new study suggests that men who don’t want their fertility affected should keep their smartphones out of their pants pockets.

A team at the University of Exeter looked at the results of 10 studies that looked into the possible negative effects of radio frequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) on male sperm. Some studies were from fertility clinics while others were from research centers.

The researchers noticed that “normal movement” of sperm fell an average of 8 percentage points when they were exposed to mobile phones.

The study was published in the journal Environment International.
