Pnm-27: The Effect of Wi-Fi Waves on Adolescent Fertility


Background
Due to the advancement of technology and communication, mobile and Wi-Fi have become as an integral part of human life, particularly young population. Thus, a review of EM wave’s effects on the reproductive health has become one of the critical matters of researches in medical field. The accession of using Wi-Fi around the world now has made it possible that about 450 million family members to have access to it in the year 2014, which the most part of those people are adolescents.
Materials and methods
This study was performed based on iterative searches, reviewing of texts and searching on various sources. According of examination that carried out in the year of 2010 in India on the male rats that exposed in the time intervals of 35 days and every day 2.1/2 hours on the vicinity of mobile waves it was determined that their sperm have been reduced considerably. And in another survey the Argentina scientists has examined the effect of Wi-Fi waves on the sperm during of one 4-hour time intervals, which in this probe 25% of sperms were inactive and 9% of them showed DNA rupture . As well in the other probe 28 rates of female along with Wister strain divided into 4 groups which the number of the secondary follicles of each three groups exposed on the waves with different times indicated of significant reduction as compared with the control group.
Results
Radiation exposure of mobile phone and Wi-Fi waves can result in the reduction of movement speed and sperm number with various mechanisms .However, it is not only men that are on the exposure of infertility, but Wi-Fi waves can also effect on women`s fertility.
Conclusion
There is a considerable correlation between radio frequency waves and fertility of people but as Wi-Fi has changed into one of the elements of social life to escape out of it is impossible. The only solution that can be done is that we ought to take away from the resources of Wi-Fi waves and for the duration of not using of apparatus as modem and other instrument connected to it, turned them off.
