Does "Enhancement" Spam Help or Hinder?????
Laptops' heat could hurt men's fertility
Heat generated by the use of laptop computers might affect men's fertility, researchers reported Wednesday.

Using laptops for one hour increased the temperatures of men's scrotums by about 5 degrees, according to a study at State University of New York at Stony Brook.

Earlier studies found that raising scrotal temperatures by more than 2 degrees can decrease the number and quality of sperm, which in turn can reduce fertility.

The new study, published in the European journal Human Reproduction, does not prove laptops affect fertility, since researchers did not measure sperm counts in the 29 volunteers.

For their next project they will do sperm counts on jockey-short wearing bicyclists who use laptops.
