Spending hours on a cell phone each day may affect the quality of a man's sperm that's according to new research.The study at the Cleveland clinic found the more hours men spent on their cell phones each day the lower their sperm count.

Men who said they used their phones for more than four hours each day had the lowest average sperm count and the fewest normal, viable sperm.

Researchers say more studies are needed before they can prove a cause and effect relationship between cell phones and sperm quality.
