WiFi enabled laptops kill male SPERM counts!!!

Could using a WiFi enabled laptop reduce the male sperm count? This is the hypothesis that has been posted in the new issue of the medical journal Fertility and Sterility. A study, conducted by Argentinean scientists, claims that the electromagnetic radiation generated by a WiFi signal could kill off sperm in male semen.
The report claims that the scientists from the Nascentis Medicina Reproductiva in Cordoba used semen samples from 29 men. Those samples were placed under a laptop that was connected to the Internet via a WiFi signal for four hours.The outcomes were horrible, 1/4th of the sperms were found no longer swimming and another 9% of the sperms showed signs of DNA damage.
The final statements of the experiment was- "Our data suggest that the use of a laptop computer wirelessly connected to the internet and positioned near the male reproductive organs may decrease human sperm quality."
 Dr. Robert Oates, the president of the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology, says, "This is not real-life biology, this is a completely artificial setting. It is scientifically interesting, but to me it doesn't have any human biological relevance."
Still as we all know 'Prevention is better than cure'. So the next time you guys use a WiFi enabled laptop computer then make sure that it is far away from your..ahem..ahem..well you know.
