It’s true, wireless hurts sperm. The damage is not due to heat. Research consistently finds that even at very low levels RF changes sperm DNA, slows sperm down and decreases the entire crew. Experimental research shows impacts such as decreased ovarian follicles and infertility.
Considering our daughters are born with just one set of eggs, we have more than enough reasons to take precautions now.
