Bad Effects on Having Laptop on Your Lap


Notebook (laptop) is a very efficient and important tool of many people today. Businessmen, college students, housewives and professionals all use laptops for one use or the other. However, it is better that men learn that they risk losing their fertility with the excessive usage of laptop computers.

The main reason men tend to lose their fertility with the excessive use of laptop computers is that the heat that is generated by the computers, and the posture that the man uses to balance the laptop computer tends to increase the temperature surrounding the scrotum.

Scientific researchers have proven that the higher is the scrotal temperature, the higher is the possibility of damaging sperms and affecting the male's fertility. Moreover, with the advent of Bluetooth and infrared connections, where there are wireless links to the internet, more and more men are using laptops on their laps than on a desk.

Men usually keep their legs open wider than women to keep their testicles at the right temperature, and for added comfort. However, with a laptop on their laps, they tend to adapt a less comfortable position so that they can balance the laptop on their laps. This leads to an increase in body temperature that is found between the thighs.

It has been recently proven that prolonged and continuous usage of laptops on the laps tend to lead to damage to the fertility of the man. This was due to the use of laptops usually leads to about 2.7C increase inthe scrotal temperature of the male. This has lead to more and more men having decreed sperm levels where sperm counts seem to have dropped by a third in ten years.

Most of the reasons for this reduced sperm count is drug use, smoking, alcohol and obesity. Beside this, pesticides, radioactive materials and chemicals, and laptops too contribute to decrease in fertility in men.

The human male body has a fixed testicular temperature to maintain normal sperm production and development. Although it is not known the exact time of heat exposure and frequency of exposure to heat that can lead to reversible and irreversible production of sperms, it is known that frequent usage of laptops can lead to irreversible or partially reversible changes in the reproductive system of the male body.

This is why it is advised that young men and teenagers should limit the use of laptops on their laps to avoid losing their fertility . It is not advisable for young men or boys to also use wireless services on their laps to play games and do other work as they are sure to develop problems in ten years' time, when trying to have a family.

It is thereby advised that men should use laptops on the desk; in fact, anywhere else is possible, other than using it in the lap. Women do not have to worry much about laptop computers on their laps, as so far, there have been no studies on the impact of using laptop computers on their laps.
