Public Service Announcement: Cell phones and infertility

That Razr could be hurting your chances of having kids.

Put that phone down!

Here at Crave we talk about plenty of cool cell phones and PDAs that will make your life complete, or at least help your ego. But just like beer ads rightfully remind you to drink responsibly, we'd like to remind the male readers of this blog to talk responsibly. Because, as you may have read already, new study results are showing that heavy cell phone usage might render men infertile.

We'll spare you the oodles of corny sperm jokes that could potentially penetrate this blog post. We'd just like our male readership to keep this in mind (along with brain cancer, eye cancer, bad driving, and all those other things that cell phones have been blamed for). And, if you don't see kids on the horizon for you, think about how spending four hours a day on your cell phone might prevent you from buying a new iPod with the money you could obtain from selling sperm on eBay.

Just kidding on that last one.
