Could WiFi radiation protection be the answer to flagging fertility? A new study from Japan suggests so, noting that EMF-blocking technology can make a significant difference to the health of human sperm. That’s right, according to this study: EMF protection saves sperm from WiFi radiation.
This research highlights a potential solution to a puzzling problem: rising rates of male infertility.
Let’s take a look at what the research found, as well as how EMF protection can help to future-proof your fertility.
Male Infertility: A Growing Problem
According to the Mayo Clinic, up to 15 percent of couples are infertile, and male infertility plays a role in over a third of those cases. Abnormal sperm function and low sperm counts are some of the main causes of male infertility, and both of these are on the rise.
Interestingly, it’s not only infertile men who are suffering from decreasing levels of sperm production and sperm motility. Fertile men are experiencing a general decrease in viable sperm as well.
One in-depth meta-analysis from 2017, published in the journal Human Reproduction Update, found that sperm counts dropped a whopping 52.4 percent between 1973 and 2011.
To put it another way: men today are only half as fertile as their grandfathers were.
“Because of the significant public health implications of these results,” conclude the study’s authors, “research on the causes of this continuing decline is urgently needed.”
New Research On WiFi And Sperm
So what is the underlying cause behind these falling sperm counts?
One recent Japanese study sought to determine whether exposure to WiFi electromagnetic waves could be killing off sperm.
The study was conducted in late 2018 and involved 51 male participants. According to researcher Kumiko Nakata, sperm samples from the men were divided into three groups:
- In one group, sperm was exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMF) from a pocket WiFi router.
- In another group, sperm samples were exposed to electromagnetic waves but WiFi EMF protection was used as a shield.
- The third group was a control group with no EMF exposure.
The WiFi EMF exposure occurred over periods of 30 minutes, 60 minutes, two hours and 24 hours.
So how did the sperm fare?
Testing at 30 and 60 minutes showed little difference between groups. But things changed very quickly from there.
Said Ms. Nakata: “After two hours activation of EM waves, the motility rate of the control group was 53.3 per cent, the shield group was 44.9 per cent, and the exposed group was much lower at 26.4 per cent.”
“After 24 hours, the dead sperm rate of the control group was 8.4 per cent, the shield group was 18.2 per cent, and exposed group was 23.3 per cent, the latter being significantly higher.”
“This indicates EM waves from a portable WiFi router decreases the motile rate and increases the death rate of human sperm.”
WiFi Radiation Protection Saves Sperm
One of the significant things about the Japanese study is that it’s believed to be the first to trial a WiFi EMF protection shield on sperm.
As you can see from the results above, the sperm samples that were shielded by the EMF protection fared much better than their unshielded counterparts.
“Our study has shown that over a relatively short time, a WiFi shield can offer some protection from the harmful effects of the EM waves,” said Ms. Nakata.
In practical terms, this means that EMF-blocking technology — like SYB’s range of EMF protection products — can not only protect your sperm from WiFi specifically, but from all wireless devices that emit radio frequency radiation.
So if you’re the type to keep a cell phone in your pocket, this research is definitely big news.
Protecting Our Future
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has predicated that infertility will become the third most serious condition after cancer and cardiovascular diseases in the 21st century.
And, says Ms. Nakata of the Japan study, “there is mounting evidence that the effects of EM waves on sperm may be having a significant effect on human reproduction.”
Where to from here? As plummeting sperm counts show, we’re a long way from solving the problem. But this latest research is a good first step to gaining a deeper understanding of how EMF affects human sperm — and what can be done to defend ourselves and future generations from harm.
While more research would certainly be beneficial (for example, to test factors like distance from devices as well as exposure times), the latest evidence leaves one thing clear: WiFi EMF protection works. And when it comes to your reproductive health, prevention is most definitely better than cure.
What Types Of WiFi Radiation Protection Can You Use?
Keep Your WiFi Router as Far Away as Possible
There are two key ways to reduce and cut out EMF radiation from your life. These two ways are:
- Minimizing use of devices that emit EMF, and
- Maximizing your distance from those sources.
A huge source of EMF radiation comes from your home internet router. That’s why it’s highly recommended that you turn your wifi router off when not in use or when you are sleeping. You can do this by unplugging it or by putting it on a timer. Some routers even come with a built-in timer for this very purpose.
However, we realize you can’t always shut off your home router, especially if you use it for work or school. So your other option to reduce your exposure to EMF radiation from your router is to maximize your distance from it.
The farther away the router is from your body the better. As a minimum precaution 10 feet is decent, however if you can get the router 20, 30, or 40 feet away (or even further) from your body, that’s even better.
Here are several other ways to maximize the distance between you and your home router:
- The best place to have a router is most likely in an office or a place where people don’t hang out for long periods of time. Never put a router in your bedroom or place where you sleep.
- If you have an attached garage and can put the router in the garage. This works well to help limit your exposure.
- Your laundry room may also be a good area to keep your router if you don’t spend long periods of time in there.
- Keep routers out of the kitchen and living areas where you spend a lot of time, especially your family room.
- Never put the router in a baby’s room or child’s room.
EMF radiation exposure is a serious health threat to you and the family members that live in your home. If you must keep your router on, be sure to find an area in your home where people will get the least exposure from it. The more distance between you and your router, the less exposure you will get from EMF radiation. It’s tips like this that are why I always say the best EMF protection is free.
The SYB Picture Frame
If you can’t move your router further away (if, for example, you’re at work and the router is fixed in place by your employer)– or even if you can, but you want more protection– another option to reduce your exposure to WiFi radiation is the SYB Picture Frame.
The SYB Picture Frame is designed to offer wifi router EMF protection without interfering with your internet!
Made right here in the USA, our SYB Picture Frame is exactly what it sounds like: an attractive 5×7”, semi-transparent picture frame. You can insert a picture onto each side of the frame, and it’s light, portable, slim, and self-supporting.
Oh, and it shields you from EMF radiation at all times. Let’s look at an example.
Just put your favorite photos in the frame, and place it on your desk or table, between your router and where you spend your time. The frame will then deflect your wifi router EMF radiation away from your body.
And because you put in your own favorite photographs, you won’t even know there’s a powerful EMF shielding device there protecting you!
How can a picture frame block EMF radiation?
Within each picture frame there is a finely-woven mesh of nickel and copper-coated polyester. This forms a barrier which deflects up to 99% of incident radiation.
The best part is that the SYB Picture Frame doesn’t interfere with your WiFi connection– your internet will still work perfectly well. Our Picture Frame only blocks radiation in one specific direction, which makes the SYB Picture Frame ideal for providing EMF anywhere you need it– like protecting you from your cell phone’s radiation emissions on your nightstand.
