Men who use mobile phones face increased risk of infertility

Men who use mobile phones could be risking their fertility, warn researchers.

A new study shows a worrying link between poor sperm and the number of hours a day that a man uses his mobile phone.

Those who made calls on a mobile phone for more than four hours a day had the worst sperm counts and the poorest quality sperm, according to results released yest at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine annual meeting in New Orleans.

Doctors believe the damage could be caused by the electromagnetic radiation emitted by handsets or the heat they generate.

The findings suggest millions of men may encounter difficulties in fathering a child due to the widespread use of mobile phones and offers another possible explanation for plummeting fertility levels among British males.

Sperm counts among British men have fallen by 29 per cent over the past decade, a drop which has also been blamed on increasing obesity, smoking, stress, pollution and 'gender-bending' chemicals which disrupt the hormone system.

The latest study backs up previous research which indicated a link between mobile phone use and sperm quality, but it is the biggest and best designed to date.

US researchers in Cleveland and New Orleans, and doctors in Mumbai, India, looked at more than 360 men undergoing checks at a fertility clinic who were classified into three groups according to their sperm count.

Men who used a mobile for more than four hours a day had a 25 per cent lower sperm count than men who never used a mobile.

The men with highest usage also had greater problems with sperm quality, with the swimming ability of sperm - a crucial factor in conception - down by a third.

They had a 50 per cent drop in the number of properly formed sperm, with just one-fifth looking normal under a microscope.

Professor Ashok Agarwal, director of the Reproductive Research Centre at the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, who led the study, said "Almost a billion people are using cell phones around the world and the number is growing in many countries at 20 to 30 per cent a year.

"In another five years the number is going to double. People use mobile phones without thinking twice what the consequences may be.

"It is just like using a toothbrush but mobiles could be having a devastating effect on fertility. It still has to be proved but it could have a huge impact because mobiles are so much part of our lives."

Altogether 361 men in the study were divided into four groups, with 40 never using a mobile, 107 men using them for less than two hours a day, 100 men using them for two-four hours daily and 114 making calls for four or more hours a day.

The main finding was that on four measures of sperm potency - count, motility, viability and morphology, or appearance - there were significant differences between the groups.

The greater the use of mobile phones, the greater the reduction in each measure. Prof Agarwal said "This was very clear and very significant. Many in the lowest group for sperm count would be below normal as defined by the World Health Organisation."

The WHO says a normal sperm count is above 20 million per millilitre of seminal fluid. "There was a significant decrease in the most important measures of sperm health with cell phone use and that should definitely be reflected in a decrease in fertility" he said.

Motility measures the swimming ability of sperm, viability measures whether non-swimming sperm are still alive while morphology is the appearance compared to the norm.

Although the men were seeking fertility treatment at a clinic in Mumbai, not all would have had a problem - it could be their partners, he added.

Prof Agarwal said the most likely mechanism was damage to sperm-making cells in the testes caused by electromagnetic radiation or heat, although a fall in hormone production could also affect sperm motility and sperm DNA.

He said: "These cells in the testes have been shown to be susceptible to electromagnetic waves in previous research in animals.

"Somehow electromagnetic waves may be causing direct damage to these cells and that perhaps causes a decrease in sperm production."

Mobiles may also increase temperature in the groin, if a man was wearing it on a belt or carrying it around in a pocket.

Prof Agarwal said it was too early to advise men trying to start a family about whether they should limit their mobile phone use. He said "We still have a long way to go to prove this but we have just had another study approved."

More than 40 million people in Britain are thought to use mobile phones. Alasdair Philips, director of the consumer pressure group Powerwatch said "It's a plausible link between the amount of time spent using a mobile phone and a possible effect on male fertility.

"The eyes, breasts and testicles are the areas of the body most likely to absorb the energy and many men carry their mobiles attached to their belt."

Sending text messages uses less power than talking but it can be a more intense emission of radiation, especially on trains, he said.

"I've seen men on trains spending two or three hours continually texting with their mobile phones held in their laps, and they press Send in the same position when it starts to seek a signal.

"This needs a considerable amount of power within what is effectively a metal box. We advise people to send a text with their arm outstretched next to the window when travelling on a train" he added.

He said local heating of the groin triggered by a mobile phone might also be involved in affecting sperm quality.

"Sperm is very temperature sensitive as shown by many studies, and a short-term rise in temperature could be responsible" he added.

However, Dr Allan Pacey, senior lecturer in andrology at the University of Sheffield, said "This is a good quality study but I don?t think it tackles the issue.

"If you?re using your phone for four hours a day, presumably it is out of your pocket for longer. That raises a big question: how is it that testicular damage is supposed to occur?"

He said mobile phone use may be a marker for other lifestyle factors known to affect sperm quality.

"Maybe people who use a phone for four hours a day spend more time sitting in cars, which could mean there?s a heat issue. It could be they are more stressed, or more sedentary and sit about eating junk food getting fat. Those seem to be better explanations than a phone causing the damage at such a great distance" he added.

Another Pointless Facebook Warning - Hackers Posting Insulting Messages In Your Name

"Hacker alert" circulating on Facebook claims that, without your knowledge, hackers are posting insulting messages that appear to come from you on the walls of your friends.

Important Note
 Versions of these messages have been circulating for more than six months. However,a porn attack that took place on Facebook in November 2011 in some ways mirrored the claims in these older "warnings" and this has caused a great deal of confusion among Facebook users. In fact, the warnings began circulating long before the November porn attack was launched and the two are not connected in any way. 

Detailed Analysis
According to this "hacker alert" message, which is circulating rapidly via Facebook, hackers are infiltrating Facebook accounts and using them to post insulting messages on the Facebook Walls of people's friends. Insulting messages that these friends will think came from the owner of the hacked account. The message asks users to share the information on their own walls as a means of alerting other Facebook users of this supposed hacker activity.

However, the message is so vague that it has no real value as a security warning and reposting it will serve no useful purpose. This feckless warning provides no information about how these supposed hackers go about compromising Facebook accounts. Nor does it provide any details about how people might protect themselves from said hackers, how widespread the hacker attack is, or what date the alleged nefarious activities began. It does not provide references that might allow people to find out this information for themselves. It does not even include so much as a single example of a hacker generated "insulting message" that might help users identify an attack.

Moreover, there are no credible computer security reports about a Facebook account hijacking campaign like the one alluded to in the message.

In fact, the message seems to be nothing more than a mutated version of earlier - and equally useless - Facebook driven warnings that claimed that inappropriate videos or messages were being posted in the names of Facebook users without their knowledge.

Of course, some rogue Facebook apps, if given the necessary permissions by a user during the installation process, may automatically post spam, scam or malware messages on the user's wall. And, if the user inadvertently divulges Facebook login details via a phishing scam, then Internet criminals could subsequently access the compromised account and post any messages that they wanted to. However, "hackers" no matter how "busy" they are on Facebook cannot randomly access Facebook accounts and use them to send messages insulting or otherwise. To allow such activities to take place, users must have first taken some overt action such as installing a rogue app, opening an attachment or website that harbours malware, or providing personal information via a phishing scam. Thus, even if a user is not aware of the consequences of his or her actions, that user must actually DO something that opens the door for the hijacker or rogue app. Hackers do not possess magical powers that allow them to take over Facebook accounts at will. And, your average cybercriminal is likely much more interested in getting your money or sensitive personal information than he is in sending insulting messages to your friends.

To be useful, security warnings need to be up-to-date, accurate, and contain enough detailed information to allow recipients to recognize and deal with the perceived threat should it come their way. Reposting vague and unsubstantiated security warnings like the one above will not enhance security on Facebook in any way whatsoever. These silly warnings do nothing other than to cause confusion among recipients and clutter our social networks with even more utterly pointless nonsense.

April 1 : Fool's Day

April Fools' Day is celebrated in different countries around the world on April 1 every year. Sometimes referred to as All Fools' Day, April 1 is not a national holiday, but is widely recognized and celebrated as a day when many people play all kinds of jokes and foolishness. The day is marked by the commission of good - humoured or otherwise funny jokes, hoaxes, and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, teachers, neighbors, work associates, etc.

Traditionally, in some countries such as Canada, New Zealand, the UK, Australia, Cyprus, and South Africa, the jokes only last until noon, and someone who plays a trick after noon is called an "April Fool" and taunted "April Fool's Day's past and gone, You're the fool for making one." Elsewhere, such as in France, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Russia, The Netherlands, Germany, Brazil, Ireland, and the U.S., the jokes last all day. In France and Italy children (and adults, when appropriate) traditionally tack paper fish on each other's back as a trick and shout "april fish!" in their local language ("poisson d'avril!" and "pesce d'aprile!" in French and Italian respectively).

The earliest recorded association between April 1 and foolishness can be found in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (1392). Many writers suggest that the restoration of January 1 as New Year's Day in the 16th century was responsible for the creation of the holiday, but this theory does not explain earlier references.

Tata unveils 100 kmpl car

If there is someone who has represented India at the Geneva Motor Show in the true sense, it is Tata. It is here that Tata has unveiled the Tata Megapixel concept car that can deliver up to 100 kmpl mileage giving a good answer to the fuel crisis impending in the world. In a unique combination with technology, the Megapixel city car uses fuel to its last drop most efficiently to deliver the highest mileage. Tata Motors Chairman Ratan Tata along with other biggies of Tata India management was present at the launch. Last year, Tata unveiled the Tata Pixel at the 81st Geneva Motor Show. That time, Tata focused the European market only but the Megapixel is projected as a world car.

Tata did it with Tata Nano giving the world the cheapest car ever and now, here it is the Megapixel small car that can solve the rising concern for over use of fuel and continuous depletion of hydrocarbons. Basically, the Tata Megapixel is an extended electric vehicle and is in the development phase. It will take another three years for this Tata’s most fuel efficient car to make it to roads. The car uses a lithium ion phosphate battery and a petrol engine as its power machines. The petrol engine charges the battery as soon as it gets low on power. In a single full charge and a tank full, the Megapixel Tata car can go up to 900 km thus returning an average of 100 kmpl. Four motors attached to each wheel power the car. Notably, while parking, the car’s front and rear wheels turn in opposite directions giving the car a short turning radius of 2.8 m.

Apart from being a mileage machine, the Megapixel city car is low on pollution and emits only 22 gm/km of CO2. This time contrary to its Pixel junior that was unveiled last year and targeted only Europe, the Megapixel targets the discerning motorists around the world. A developed version of Tata Pixel car, the Megapixel enshrines the future design strategy of the homegrown car maker. The car can also be charged using the electricity by the special induction pad at home.
