Laptop Computers Could Affect A Man's Fertility

This should get the attention of all men who own a laptop computer. Researchers believe now that little convenience can affect fertility.

29 healthy males volunteered for this study. Researchers measured scrotal temperature before and after the men used a computer in their lap. They found that temperature went up significantly in one hour.

Researchers believe the weight and the heat emissions from the machine can impact sperm production and sperm quality suggesting laptops should be used more often as desk-tops.
