Laptops may damage male fertility

In yet another blow to the wi-fi and computer industry experts are now saying - again - that men who use laptop computers could be unwittingly damaging their fertility....

According to a recent BBCNews report titled 'Laptops may damage male fertility':

Balancing it on the lap increases the temperature of the scrotum which is known to have a negative effect on sperm production, researchers found.

Coupled with the rising popularity of these computers - about 150m people use them worldwide - much more research is needed say the US authors.

The State University of New York findings appear in Human Reproduction.

The moral is - be careful where you balance!
