Nowadays, office workers generally use computers at work, as well as at home. Sometimes, they also like to put them on their legs. Do you know that doing so can harm their health.
With the development of the internet, people are increasingly relying on computers. In addition to eating and sleeping every day, many friends spend most of their time working or leisure near computers. Although we all know that long-term exposure to computers can have an impact on our health, do you know? If you are a laptop enthusiast, or if you prefer to work with your laptop directly on your knee, then this is even worse for your health, especially for male friends. Placing your laptop directly on your knee can reduce semen quality.
Experts have pointed out that the testicle is one of the target organs sensitive to electromagnetic radiation, and long-term exposure to computer radiation does have an impact on the fertilization function of male sperm.
Rat experiment: 48 rats were placed on a laptop computer, and the sperm appearance was good, but the internal structure was damaged
Beginning in March 2011, Professor Shang Xuejun, an expert in andrology at the General Hospital of the Nanjing Military Region, conducted a grouping experiment on 48 rats. Each group of 8 rats was divided into 6 groups, and radiation experiments were conducted on rats for 2 hours and 4 hours per day, respectively. Eight rats were kept in transparent cages placed on notebooks, just above the keyboard.
Professor Shang discovered during his experiment that electromagnetic radiation has a potential damaging effect on the reproductive function of male mice. The degree of sperm damage is proportional to the time spent using a laptop. Sperm damage in rats exposed to radiation for 4 hours a day is more severe than in rats exposed to radiation for 2 hours a day.
This is all due to ultrastructural damage, which means that the appearance of the sperm is fine, but the internal structure has already been damaged. Experts have found that electromagnetic radiation can even damage sperm membranes. Lipoprotein and glycoprotein on the surface of sperm membrane are the main substances for realizing sperm function.
In addition, the longer the radiation time of the notebook, the greater the impact on DNA. "It will also directly reflect the impact on the quality and development of the fetus after the sperm and egg are combined and fertilized in the future, increasing the health risk of the fetus after birth.". The occurrence of fetal arrest during pregnancy is not excluded. However, this still needs further confirmation.
Why can't men work with their notebooks directly on their knees? I believe you have the answer now. Yes, if you work with your laptop on your knee for a long time, it will reduce the quality of semen. Therefore, male friends must pay more attention in their future lives and work. It is best to spend no more than 5 hours online. The laptop should not be used on your knee, but rather on your desk, which is also beneficial for your cervical spine.
