Harry Gardiner, MD of Wavewall Worldwide, talks here about a new study showing the harm that WiFI does to human sperm
A Japanese study involving fifty-one men showed that exposure to WiFi means greater risk of male infertility as more sperm die and are left immobile and ineffective.
The study, which took place in 2018, placed sperm samples near a small router simulating a mobile phone in a man’s pocket at a similar distance. The sperm samples were exposed for half an hour, an hour, two hours, and twenty-four hours.
The sperm was then tested for motility, which is how well sperm moves. Only sperm that swims in a strong, forward motion are capable of fertilising an egg. Any reduction in sperm motility makes conception that much less likely.
The results revealed alarming results for anyone keeping their phone on their body for two hours or more.
- WiFi exposure leads to an increase in ineffective, immobile sperm and an increase in sperm death.
- Shielding, like WaveWall anti-radiation technology, is found to improve the chances for sperm.
We urgently need further research into the effects of WiFi on male fertility
The Japanese study was carried out by Researcher Kumiko Nakata, Head of the Research Division, Reproductive Medicine Research Centre, Yamashita Shonan Yume Clinic. He explored the results of three groups of sperm, a control group which was not exposed, a group that used shielding along with the exposure and a group which was freely exposed.
Differences emerged at the two hour mark
The control group had a motility of 53 per cent and the shield group of 44 per cent, but the exposed group was just 29 per cent.
By 24 hours, 8 per cent of the control group sperm was dead. 18 per cent of the shielded group was dead and 23 per cent of the exposed group was dead.
The electromagnetic waves created and used by WiFi technology has been shown in many studies to pass through the body and damage cells and DNA. Sperm are very vulnerable to environmental changes.
WiFi networks are incredibly widespread and only getting more so and male fertility is dropping at an alarming rate
The connection receives very little attention and little study, meanwhile the expansion of 5G mobile phone networks and WiFi continues unabated. Long term understanding of the effects are impossible as the technology is so new.
What of the shielded group in the study?
They were using a small WiFi shield that intercepted the electromagnetic rays. This anti-radiation shielding has a well-established scientific principle at its core – the Faraday cage.
This is the basis of the WaveWall range of anti-radiation shielding products for phones and laptops. WaveWall blocks up to 85 per cent of electromagnetic radiation from reaching the body.
It is clear we urgently need further research into the effects of WiFi and mobile phones on male fertility, as well as evidence reviews carried out by governments.
WaveWall state that their anti-radiation cases cut exposure by up to 85 per cent and are independently tested and verified.
