If you have been trying to have kids for a while and haven’t had much success, the answer could be right in your pocket. Literally. Kumiko Nakata, a researcher from Japan, found that the electromagnetic waves from WiFi devices, like mobile phones and home routers, can do significant damage to sperm.
We at Bright Side try to keep an eye on the latest research and share it with our readers.
30% of fertility problems come from men
According to the World Health Organization, about 15% of couples in the world have issues when it comes to having children. And at least one-third of fertility problems come from men. Of course, men’s infertility could be caused by many things, like a bad environment, stress, a poor diet, genetics, etc. However, a small thing like keeping a mobile phone in their pocket could be the straw that’s breaking the camel’s back and that’s not allowing you to grow your family.
WiFi exposure experiment
The Japanese scientists took samples from a group of 51 men and divided them into 3 groups. They also used a WiFi device, replicating a mobile phone.
One group of samples didn’t get any exposure from a WiFi router. The second group was exposed, but had a WiFi protection shield. And the third group had full exposure. The samples were placed relatively close to the WiFi device, replicating the mobile phone being carried around in the pants pocket and the results were taken after different times.
Sperm become damaged after 2 hours.
The findings were a bit scary. While being under the influence of a WiFi signal for 30 minutes hardly had any effect, longer exposure started showing an impressive difference. After just 2 hours the motility rate of the unexposed group was 53.3%, the shield group 44.9%, and the exposed group only 26.4%. 24 hours later the dead sperm rate for the exposed group was 23.3% compared to 8.4% for the unexposed samples.
We have more mobile phones than people.
The statistics say that, these days, the number of active mobile phones is larger than the actual world population, meaning that quite a few people have more than one phone, and the effect from its waves might be too serious to be ignored.
Prevention might be very simple.
Ms. Nakata specified that the study confirmed that the electromagnetic waves from WiFi devices are safe for people in terms of well-being and health. Perhaps, a simple solution like keeping the phone on a desk instead in a pocket will make a difference for some families.
Where do you normally keep your mobile phones and what do you think about this research? Share your opinion with us.

Research Says That People Who Blush Are More Generous and Trustworthy
Some people feel uncomfortable when they blush, because they believe that this reaction of their body makes them appear timid and insecure. However, the reality is very different, because blushing can make us look more sincere and trustworthy to other people.
Today, we at Bright Side would like to tell you why blushing is not a sign of weakness, as many used to think.
Humans are the only ones that blush.
Humans are the only species known to blush, according to the findings of Darwin. After observing the gestures of monkeys, while conducting his studies on evolution — he defined this reaction as “the most peculiar and the most human of all expressions,” that probably happens because of a social defense mechanism that humans create against feelings like guilt or shame.
It makes you more attractive to the opposite sex.
The truth is that, although it could be a social defense mechanism that speaks to our discomfort, we are more attractive when our cheeks begin to turn pink. This gesture reflects a bit of vulnerability, and it’s for that very reason that it also creates a sense of intimacy that is striking to the opposite sex. In addition, it makes us look radiant, which is why, when putting on makeup, we apply pink powder on our cheeks.
People who blush are more trustworthy.
According to a study that has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, people who blush easily are people who are considered to be trustworthy and more generous, compared to those who don’t react in the same way. The researchers of this study also claim that other forms of moderately expressing embarrassment and social vulnerability are true signs of virtue, since it’s not possible to reproduce these reactions voluntarily.
Other gestures that reveal our emotional state
In a series of experiments, 60 college students were videotaped recounting embarrassing moments. The results indicated that blushing generates trust in other people and that’s why we shouldn’t try to hide it. This investigation includes people who react with gestures like a downward gaze, covering their face, laughing involuntarily, and blushing at the slightest provocation.
Why we blush when we feel embarrassed
Our face turns red because when we are in an embarrassing situation, the body releases adrenaline, which is what causes the redness of the skin, as it increases the blood flow to the blood vessels. This process is linked to our sympathetic nervous system and, for this reason, we can’t control it. We can also feel our heart rate speed up, our breathing increase its frequency, and in some people it can cause them to start sweating.
When it comes to blushing, it’s impossible to lie.
Blushing is something that we, human beings, are unable to avoid. It’s a set of involuntary bodily functions that are unleashed when we are exposed to a situation that embarrasses us, although not always in an unpleasant way. But it always shows that something matters to us and that, if we’ve done something wrong, we do have the desire to fix it. Because of this, this reaction is linked to honesty. So, if you see your partner blushing, you should believe in what your eyes are seeing.
Do you blush very often? Do you find it embarrassing or is it something that doesn’t worry you too much? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.
