Does using a laptop damage a man’s sperm count? Gents heed the warning

The BBC released an article last week suggesting the Health Protection Agency (HPA) in the UK has found a link between Wifi use on laptops and a reduction in the sperm count of the laptop user. The article shies away from drawing a direct conclusion from the studies, however the online blogs seem to suggest people are at least thinking about the issue.

One thing beyond debate is the fact that wherever possible users should not use a laptop on their lap for protracted periods. There have been some reports of very nasty accidents as well as a plethora of studies also trying to link this type of laptop usage to lower sperm counts.

Here at Laptop Power UK we advise users to read the articles for themselves and draw their own conclusion. What is clear advice though is to avoid using the laptop for long periods on your knees. Always remember to tuck your laptop charger lead away so it is not likely to get tripped over. As well as protecting your laptop adapter from damage, it also reduces the chances of a broken laptop dc socket and also a cracked laptop screen as a result of tripping up over the lead. Using a laptop sat at a desk may also save expensive repair bills as well as looking after your health.
