Family Jewels Protection Against Wireless Device Radiation

Dell laptop computer - RF CafeThis being a family-friendly website prevents me from showcasing the actual merchandise that is the topic of this feature. A regular RF Cafe visitor and contributor sent me a hyperlink to a company called Wireless Armour which manufactures a line of clothing that addresses and solves the problem of a fairly recently identified and verified issue facing the future of the human race. Indeed, I have posted a large number of news stories on the subject in the past decade.

RadiaTex® material detail - RF CafePer the company's website, "Wireless Armour is a new line of 'smart, wearable tech' Wi-Fi shielding men's underwear that aims to protect male fertility against 99.9% of harmful electromagnetic radiation emitted by Wi-Fi devices including smartphones and laptops." Further, "Since 1989 men's sperm counts have dropped by over 1/3rd, this correlates surprisingly well with the first mobile phone widely available from 1983 and increasing from 12.4 million in 1990 to 6 billion in 2011. Whilst this correlation has not been verified there have been even more worrying studies showing a 25% drop in sperm counts after just 4 hours of Wi-Fi exposure. At Wireless Armour we do not want to wait around whilst the government and scientific community confirm 100% whether it is harmful to our health, we would rather protect ourselves now and find out later. Don't Be A Test Subject!"

A debate persists as to whether a hazard really does exist, but a lot of people liken the battle to how tobacco companies originally argued that smoking does not cause cancer*. I have yet to see a Surgeon General's warning label on laptop computers to admonish people against placing them on their laps when using Wi-Fi. As a public service, I suggest the one below.

Interestingly, it was difficult to find a photo of a guy sitting with a computer on his lap - especially on a computer manufacturer's website. The one shown from Dell was the only instance I could find after looking on Apple, HP, Lenovo, ASUS, Dell, Toshiba, and Samsung websites. I wouldn't be surprise if they have purposely purged all such examples of suggested use modes.

Does the lack of similar protective undergarments for the female persuasion indicate a 'war on women' on the part of the industry?

* BTW, have you noticed the utter lack of CDC-sponsored anti-smoking commercials and print advertisements since the big push for legalization of pot has become popular?
