Grasping at Straws: Laptops Kill Sperm

Good morning!
Sometimes it seems to me that the "news" tries to hard to find interesting or scary news to grab our attention.  ABC news has a story suggesting that Wi-Fi internet access on laptops harms men's sperm.

The article on ABC's website has four paragraphs about the harm (electromagnetic waves) before it mentions an actual doctor who said the study is inclusive.

However, as already known in the medical community and those suffering from male-factor infertility, heat can kill sperm.  Long hot baths and sitting with a hot lap-top on your lap are not good for baby-making.

The link to the story is here.

Here are links to chapter one of my book:
