Another cell phone study re male fertility

Another study has just been published that warns men about possible adverse effects of cell phones on their fertility. The online version of Journal of Fertility and Sterility reports that men who keep their cell phones in their pockets or clip them to their belts while in use may be compromising their sperm count. The study involved actually exposing sperm to a cell phone in talk mode for one hour. That does seem to be much more empirical than the anecdotal results that come from surveys. The researches reported that there was a 7% decrease in sperm motility and 11% decrease in viability after the exposure.
