Experts are raising concerns about the relatively unknown idea of ‘testicle tanning’ after Fox News host Tucker Carlson promoted it in the trailer for an upcoming documentary.
Dr. Helen Bernie, a urologist who specializes in male sexual and reproductive health says that some people believe red light therapy boosts energy; there’s no scientific data to support the idea, though. Dr. Bernie isn’t alone in sounding the alarm.
Dr. Amin Herati, a professor of urology at Johns Hopkins University, says the red light could harm sperm counts and the production of testosterone instead of increasing it. Multiple doctors have come out to say the practice is, in the words of one, “a bad idea for multiple reasons.”
