June is National Men’s Health Awareness Month

Most men are aware that the key to a healthy life and longevity include a few well established “rules:” Eat well, don’t smoke, exercise regularly, drink moderately and enjoy quality time with good friends.
So what other lesser known health concerns should men be aware of? For men of all ages, including boys, keeping your cell phone out of your front pocket may well contribute to better testicular health and healthy fertility. Studies fresh out of the University of Exeter, England now confirm what other numerous findings have long held, namely that decreased fertility in men has been observed in those who regularly keep their cellular phones in the front pockets. Columbia University’s Martin Blank filled the room to capacity two weeks ago in Lafayette, California discussing these health concerns from his new book, “Overpowered.”
Cell phone manufacturers do tell consumers to keep the phone away from the body by roughly an inch but these warnings are not easily accessible to consumers. It appears that the electromagnetic frequency emitted by the phones is adversely affecting sperm count, quality and motility. Some men have reported cists forming in the testicular area next to where the cell phone is placed in the front pants pocket. Young men should take special note and exercise precaution while carrying their phones. If the phone is “off” or in “airplane mode” it will not be reaching for signal. As such, this is the safest way to leave your phone in the front pocket.
The older generation has long known the importance of keeping the cell phone away from pace-makers. Now, young men have to be careful too!
