Heat may not be the only fertility hazard. Early research suggests that the electromagnetic radiation emitted when a laptop's connected to wi-fi may also damage sperm DNA. So, what can you do to safeguard fertility?
- Put your laptop on the table. Even protective pads won't protect you.
- Stick to short online-surfing sessions if you're using a laptop. And spread your legs.
- Limit time on your bike. Cycling more than 5 hours a week also lowers sperm concentration.
- Eat healthful foods and take vitamins. Foods and supplements rich in DHA omega-3 fats, zinc, selenium, folic acid, and vitamins C and E increase sperm count.
