“Jeff, do you worry at all about carrying a cellphone in your pocket all the time? Any thoughts on this?”
Good question Tim.
If you want to know my personal habits, then yes I try to NOT carry a cellphone in my pocket throughout the day.
The majority of the day, my cellphone is about 10 ft away from me on my desk (not in my pocket).
When I’m driving, I usually take it out of my pocket as well.
And when I’m sleeping, I try to put it on the other side of the room.
I would guess my cellphone is actually in my pocket for about an hour a day at most.
And I don’t think that’s a major concern.
But I do have some concern about people who keep cellphones in their pockets all day long.
Because the small amount of research we have shows that their is reason to worry.
In studies done on rabbits and rats, there have been numerous studies that show that cellphone radiation lowers sperm count and also changes the actions of sperm in males.
Now a lot of guys who are done having kids might think this isn’t a big deal, but I don’t look at it like that.
I figure that if it can have that kind of effect on sperm count, then it’s obviously damaging other aspects of your body as well.
I don’t need a double-blind study to tell me that putting a wi-fi connection right next to my manhood for 10 hours a day is a bad idea.
That just seems like common sense.
I don’t think this is as big of an issue for women since they tend to keep their phones in their purse.
But I would advise any woman keeping their cellphone in their pocket all day long that it’s probably not good for them either.
The bottom line is that studies have shown that carrying a phone in your pocket all day can cause physiological changes in your body…
The extent of which we don’t really know yet…
But I’d rather be cautious, because common sense tells me that it’s doing more damage than we think.
Alright, that’s all from me for today.
