Cell Phones Cause Brain Activity

ABC News February 22nd, 2011

ABC news that covers the correlation between cell phone use and cancer. While it can’t be proven either way the simple fact remains that with every passing study that researchers can’t find proof, the danger still remains. Here is a key segment from the article:

“There have been several studies since the late 1990s trying to address whether the human brain is affected by the electromagnetic radiation from cell phones because it’s very, very weak,” said the lead author on the study, Dr. Nora Volkow of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. “The studies were very inconsistent, but we designed this study so it would be powered to detect small activity.”

“This shows that the human brain is sensitive to these weak magnetic impulses.”

Now after reading this I’m not suggesting that we all go back to pagers, I just wanted to bring this to your attention so that you can plan accordingly. I’ve started using a headset anytime I take a call when I’m at home. This at the very least cuts my exposure in half. I hope that this article helps in some way.
