Holy Warmed Over Testicles Batman!
A new study, out today, warns laptop computer users about sperm damage due to temperature increase in the testicles as a result of the heat emanating from the laptop computer (when they are balanced on the lap of the user).
The researchers hooked thermometers to the scrotums of 29 young men who were balancing a laptop on their knees. They found that even with a lap pad under the computer, the men’s scrotums overheated quickly. (Reuters)
The study, which was conducted by Dr. Yefim Sheynkin at the University of New York at Stony Brook, goes on to say that men in the reproductive age range are the ones using laptop computers the most, and this could have an adverse effect on their level of fertility.
The good doctor is right, we should do everything in our power to make sure our teenagers are as fertile as possible.
