Previous research has suggested that Radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) emitted by the devices can have a detrimental effect on male fertility. Most of the global adult population own mobile phones, and around 14% of couples in high and middle income countries have difficulty conceiving.

Until now, the research on the existence of an smartphone-sperm apocalypse has sent mixed signals. So, a team led by Dr Fiona Mathews, of Biosciences at the University of Exeter, conducted a “meta-study” or study of studies published in the journal Environment International on June 10, 2014 – Which found that cell phone usage was associated with an 8.1 percent descent in sperm motility (how fast the little guys swim) and 10 percent change in sperm viability (if they can make it to the egg alive).
