This is Phil’s Story…

Phil likes to think he’s pretty careful about his mobile phone use. He talks on the phone a lot for work and with mates, but he uses speakerphone when he can because he’s heard about the risks of mobile phone radiation. Phil’s just started using a fitness app so he keeps it tracking in his pants pocket while he goes about his day (he’s trying to beat the 12,746 steps he walked yesterday). He’s always streaming music on the go too, because he recently upgraded to a new data plan. Tonight Phil’s heading home to watch the latest episode of Game of Thrones on his tablet (and let’s face it, probably share some memes about it on social media), before catching up on today’s emails while he’s sitting on the couch.

 

Mobile Devices and Fertility

Phil’s using his phone’s speakerphone while making calls which is a great start, but he probably doesn’t know about his other exposure to mobile phone radiation.

Men’s testicles are highly vulnerable to microwave radiation. In a recent study47% of the men who carried their mobile phone less than 50cm from their groin were found to have an abnormally low sperm concentration. That’s 36% higher than the population who didn’t carry their phone close to their groin.

Men in this study who talked on the phone for over an hour per day and while the device was being charged were found to be twice as likely than usual to have low sperm quality.

So What Can We Do?

Fortunately, there are some easy ways for Phil to reduce his mobile phone radiation. He can carry his phone in a bag rather than his pants pocket, particularly while it’s transmitting. He can also stick a Lif3 Smartchip onto the back of his smartphone, knowing most of that radiation will be dispersed away from his head and body with virtually no loss of signal. That way even if Phil does carry his phone in his pocket (which we still don’t recommend) all he has to do is keep the screen facing towards his body to reduce his SAR exposure by up to 95%* Now that is a relief!

Find your Lif3 Smartchip and look after the boys.
