Attention all men: You might want to keep your laptops, smartphones and other Internet-browsing tools away from the family jewels.
Apparently studies have shows that putting the laptop directly above your "family jewels" is the direct culprit of lowered sperm quality and even sperm death. Laptops were invented around 3 decades ago and became popular in the 90s. I know the more people there are on the planet which means that there are more birth defects occurring but I reckon that laptops were a direct cause of the steady increase in child birth defects over the years percentage-wise. In figure 2 of an article about birth defect rates, you can see the sharp increase in heart disease birth defects. Statistics show that there was a sharp increase of heart related diseases in birth during the 90s, right around when laptops started to gain ubiquity. Who knows? Maybe it isn't just an increase in heart disease defects as the stats showed, it could be many major and minor things or long term or short term things. Although the stats showed a correlation between laptop use and birth defects, the correlation may be due to a variety of other factors such as air pollution. But one thing is for sure, we should keep the heat and radiation from away from the sperm container and be more aware of external factors that may affect sperm quality so that we can make tomorrow's best babies.
