If you’ve been reading any of my articles, you know how important hormones are to your health, fitness, and longevity. And for men, testosterone is the “king” of all hormones.
In fact, it’s been said that a man without testosterone is like a car without gasoline.
Sadly, today more men suffer from low testosterone than ever before in history and it’s now considered an epidemic! Low testosterone (also called low T) can cause symptoms ranging from lack of sex drive, erectile problems, depression, and fatigue to irritability, memory loss, hair loss, and enlarged breasts and prostate.
The Cause Of Low Testosterone
Of course, the #1 cause is just simple aging. However, the fact that things are getting worse and worse each year, shows that lifestyle is playing a major role in this problem.
Now, in the past, I’ve spoken about improvements you can make to your diet, exercise, and supplements…. That will make instant improvements in your testosterone levels.
However, today I want to focus on another major cause of lowered testosterone levels that most people don’t talk about and that’s your mobile phone and laptops. Basically, any device that’s on “wifi”.
During the past decade, while men’s Testosterone levels have rapidly been declining, there’s been a proportionate increase in the use of laptop computers and mobile phones. In fact, 92% of men own cell phones these days, while back in the year 2000, it was only 28%
And the problem with these devices is that they’re a major source of electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radiation, which can wreak havoc on a man’s testosterone levels.
Not only that, but they also cause a significant decrease in sperm motility and decreased fertility.1,2,3
Anyway, there’s no denying the fact these devices are castrating men. So, what’s the solution?…
Basically, you need to stay away from WiFi connections.
Laptop & “Tablet” Solutions
Men should never put their laptop on their lap unless there’s a 12-inch cushion under the notebook, as this is about how far the EMF field transfers. EMF shields are also available to put under laptops, which protects the body from these dangerous frequencies. You can search online or on Amazon for one of these devices.
This ALSO includes tablet devices, so keep that in mind as well.
To keep cell phones from killing your testosterone, men should avoid storing their mobile phones near their groin area, unless it’s on airplane mode.
It’s best to store the phone far away from the testicles, either in a briefcase, car console, back pocket, front shirt, or coat pocket.
Keep in mind that EMF radiation is twice as strong when in an area where reception is bad. The more power your phone uses to search for a tower, the more radiation it emits.
Now, I’ve heard about special “shields” you can put in your phones, to protect you from these EMF waves… but, I don’t know how effective they are.
So, there you have it.. Do your best to stay away from WiFi connections.
Now, these suggestions are good for preventing the decrease in your testosterone. But they do NOTHING for increasing your testosterone levels. Especially if you’re over the age of 30.
