Having recently purchased a cell phone small enough to fit comfortably in my front pants pocket, this report on sperm motility piqued my interest. Not that I’m looking to impregnate anyone, but I guess this is evidence that I cannot necessary assume that there are no negative physical effects.
If cell phones could provide reliable and reversible sterility, their market would become even wider. Think of the branding opportunity!
