Quote:

Basically, guys, all that YouTube browsing could be killing off your little soldiers.

I don't care - I've done all the reproducing I'm going to to do!!

Shawn, I read the article. As the author says it is not yet proved in human beings.

Can I compare this to a mobile phone threat?

Nowadays we are using mobile phones more than wi-fi and I am sure mobile phones emit more electromagnetic radiation than wi-fi chips in laptops.

Yeah, I would say it's one of those things that's not completely proven yet, but could be a possibility.

With some people, it might be a good thing to reduce their ability to pass on their genes.

The lesson here is that your laptop should never be your pillow, especially during sexy time.
