Cell Phones and Testosterone


www.ironmanmagazine.comYour cell phone may be draining your testosterone. Does that surprise you? Most likely the cause is a combination of radiation and the stress that cell phones impose on cell phone wearers. One study showed that wearing a cell phone on your hip reduces androgen levels by 31 percent. Such a drop may result in an androgynous condition known as “Bieber fever.”

Besides lowering testosterone, many other dangers are associated with overuse and improper use of cell phones. An interesting read on this subject is Disconnect: The Truth about Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Has Done to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family by Devra Davis, Ph.D., MPH. In it Davis interviews several of the top researchers in the field, including Om P. Gandhi and Franz Adlkofer. Gandhi has studied how radiation from cell phones affects the brain, and Franz has been involved in research showing how it affects DNA.
