This “meta-study” or study of studies published in the journal Environment International on June 10, 2014 – found that cell phone usage was associated with an 8.1 percent descent in sperm motility (how fast the sperm swim) and 10 percent change in sperm viability (if sperm can make it to the egg alive).
