Introduction: Today, we are dealing with the waves including, the waves emitted from wireless devices connecting to the Internet, which can have a different negative impact on human health. The aim of the present study was investigated the effect of electromagnetic waves emitted from the tablet connected to internet on the movement and number of sperm in adult male rat.
Materials & Methods: 40 male rats were divided into two control and treatment groups with electromagnetic radiation emitted from a tablet connected to the Internet, respectively. Sperm count and sperm motility in both groups were analyzed by T-test.
Results: The results showed that the electromagnetic waves emitted from the tablet connected to the Internet caused a significant decrease in the total number of sperms and had a significant effect on sperm motility. In the treatment group with electromagnetic waves from tablet, the number of healthy and damaged sperm had significantly decrease and increase respectively compared to the control group, but there was no significant difference between semi motile sperms in the two experimental groups.
Conclusion: It can be concluded that the electromagnetic waves emitted from the internet-connected tablet lead to reduced count and motility of sperm.
Keywords: Electromagnetic waves, tablet, internet, sperm motility
