A new study indicates that using a laptop computer raises scrotal temperatures to such a degree that prolonged use in young men may result in
fertility issues. Apparently, the heat generated by the laptop might cause irreversible damage to the testicles and sperm. Scientists are
recommending that laptop use should be curtailed to less than a few days a week.
Teenagers and young men should keep their laptops off their laps because they could damage fertility, an expert said Thursday.
Laptops, which reach high internal operating temperatures, can heat up the scrotum which could affect the quality and quantity of men's sperm.
"The increase in scrotal temperature is significant enough to cause changes in sperm parameters," said Dr Yefim Sheynkin, an associate professor of
urology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

Male laptop users who plan on having children should avoid placing their laptops directly onto their laps. The heat generated by their laptop could
cause scrotal temperature increases that may damage or destroy their sperm and sperm producing capabilities. Laptop users should ensure that, when
positioning their laptops in their lap, they should sit in a position that doesn't add further heat to the genital area. It would probably also be
wise to take periodic breaks, removing the laptop and allowing one's self to cool down, as it were.
what about cooks/chefs who have to work constantly for hours on the stove with the balls getting lots of heat from the oven. No "shock and
awe" news on that.....
My advice is that the Media needs to cool down a bit with their paranoid info on things.....life isn't that hazardous
