C4ST urges Canadians to keep their sperm safe this Valentine's Day
TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Citizens 4 Safe Technology is urging men
of all ages - and the people who love them - to create a buffer zone
between their "junk" and their mobile devices. The grassroots advocacy
group today released a video highlighting the dangers of radiation on
The group is also sharing some simple tips that will help men safeguard
the quality of their sperm. The video, titled "Don't Kill The Love,"
contains footage that replicates the results of a seminal study linking
cell phone radiation to a decrease in sperm motility.
"People are in a romantic frame of mind on Valentine's day," said Frank
Clegg, CEO of C4ST. "It's the perfect time for couples to decide on
some safety precautions for their sperm."
C4ST's timely message will resonate with a surprisingly large number of
Canadians. Nearly one in six Canadian couples is currently experiencing
infertility, according to a 2012 study published in the journal Human Reproduction. In 40-50% of those cases, the problem lies with the man - and not the
woman. Poor semen quality is the largest culprit in male infertility.
"The video is funny, but the issue is deadly serious," says Clegg, the
former president of Microsoft Canada. "We're living in a world where
electromagnetic radiation - from cell towers, Wi-Fi and of course cell
phones - is everywhere. The effects are beginning to show. We want
people to do everything they can to stay safe and lead productive
lives. In this case, men need to remain vigilant about protecting their
sperm." Infertility among Canadian couples has nearly doubled over the
past two decades, according to the 2012 study in Human Reproduction. C4ST is a grassroots advocacy group pushing for stricter safeguards on
radiation-causing wireless technology.

Five Tips to keep the Love alive this Valentine's Day:
Think with your head. Keep your phone away from it.
A little less talk and more action: Replace a phone call with a sexy
text message whenever possible.
Put a protective barrier between your two favorite things to play with
in bed: Your lap and your laptop.
If no other option, keep your cell phone in your outside jacket pocket,
rather than your pants pocket.
If getting romantic this Valentine's Day, put your cell on airplane
mode. Don't Kill the Love!
