Part of the Fertility Within Reach mission is to help preserve reproductive health. This is critical to prevent the number of those diagnosed with infertility from increasing.
What does this mean? Simply, education, we must educate our youth about their reproductive organs, how to take care of their bodies, as well as how to identify problems in their development.
Another article came out today warning radiation from mobile phones and electronic devices such as laptops puts individuals at risk of infertility. This isn’t new news, but for some reason, there hasn’t been a lot of action to protect those most at risk; youth and pregnant women.
“Even as the department of telecommunications (DoT) has recently implemented new guidelines for emission of electromagnetic radiations by cell towers and mobile phones, a new detailed study by the BioInitiative Working Group 2012 has found that in last five years, health risk due to radiations has increased substantially. It is an extensive report comprising review of over 1800 new scientific studies.
The report has found that mobile users, parents-to-be, young children and pregnant women are more sensitive to the risks from mobile phones.
The report also points out that a number of new studies link radiation to sperm damage. Even a mobile phone in the pocket may harm sperm DNA and result in infertility in men. Laptop computers with WiFi and mobile phone data card can also damage DNA in sperm.
Mobile phones may also alter brain development of the fetus in the case of pregnant women. This has been linked to hyperactivity, learning and behavior problems.”
What’s the solution? Simply, start the conversation, raise awareness, and don’t put these devices near reproductive organs.
Please help us spread the word by sharing this blog today. These kids have no idea the risk they are in and it’s our responsibility to protect them.
