Scientists have found that using wireless Internet on a laptop could harm a man's fertility.

A study by doctors from Argentina and the U.S. found that sperm were significantly damaged after only four hours of exposure to Wi-Fi. The sperm were less able to swim and had changes in the genetic code they carry.

Experts say the research is preliminary and they are recommending more studies.
