The biggest study in the world into how mobile phones and wireless technology have an effect on the cognitive growth of children is launching in the
”By assessing the children in year 7 and again in year 9 we will be able to see how their cognitive capability expand in relation to changing use of mobile phones and other wireless technologies,“ commented Toledano. Fears over how mobile phones affect health are centered on their radiofrequency emissions, which come in the form of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation.
How much is released from the phone depends on the device in question and things like space from phone towers. The radiation can be absorbed by tissue, and for years have been at the centre of scientific research all of which has shown no cause for instant concern.
However, studies do express incidences of biological side effects. For instance, a 2011 trail found that exposing people to a mobile for 50 minutes ”increased brain glucose metabolism in the region closest to the antenna“. Still, it finished, ”This finding is of unknown clinical consequence“.
Otherwise there has been some statistical association between mobile phone usage and brain tumors, but no biological foundations for concern have been recognized. Don’t miss
