Cell Phones May Make Men Less "Manly"

Cell Phones May Make Men Less "Manly"

Men trying to have children may want to think twice before taking smartphone calls, according to recent research, which question the effect of mobile devices on humans and even on overall planetary health.
smartphone usage to lower levels of luteinizing hormone, or LH, an important reproductive chemical produced in the brain's pituitary gland.
Scientists believe electromagnetic waves, or EMW, from cell phones reduce that hormone's production, which in turn lowers sperm quality, though oddly those waves seem to increase testosterone levels at the same time.
Researchers at Queen's University in Canada and the Medical Univeristy of Graz in Austria, where the experiment was conducted, say it's too early to tell whether cell phones are actually causing infertility.
Dr. Rany Shamloul, who led the study at Queen's, recommended others repeat the experiment to double-check if current cell phone safety standards are adequate.
"Our study is an eye-opener that electromagnetic waves may have an effect on fertility," said Shamloul. "It's not a done deal, but it's a red flag that more research needs to be done."
This isn't the first suggestion that cell phones may harm humans. The National Institute of Health published findings in February that suggests long conversations on the devices may lead to an increase in brain tumors, especially on the side of the head where people often hold their phones.
Disturbed sleep, hearing problems, headaches and a host of other less severe phone-related health effects have been tied to cell phone usage as well.
Cell phones could be affecting not only human health, but other species' well-being too. Researchers published studies two weeks ago linking honeybee deaths to cell phone radiation, which somehow disrupt the bees' internal navigation systems, causing them to abandon their hives.
This research, along with increasing incidents of colony collapse disorder in bee populations starting in 2001, is worrying to scientists, since bees pollinate three-fourths of major crops worldwide.
As it stands, the FCC mandates U.S. phones emit no more than 1.6-watts per kilogram of body tissue. Manufacturers must include this information in their user manuals, though BlackBerry takes it a step further by voiding a phone's warranty if someone keeps it less than 2-milimeters away from the body.
Going beyond RIM's precautions, a recently tabled law in San Francisco would have required phone carriers to label their products as potentially harmful. This idea, however, understandably failed to thrill wireless giants AT&T and Verizon.
Pending corroboration of this new study on male fertility, however, the FCC may need to take another look at its minimum electromagnetic waves requirements for cell phones.
