Your mobile phone is not only a possibly carcinogenic radiation emitting device, but may alter the structure and function of the brain, including brain wave activity that is intimately connected to cognition, mood and behavior.
Ever since the World Health Organization admitted in 2011 that cell phone radiation is “possibly carcinogenic,” and may be contributing to the global increase in brain cancer cases, it’s not so easy to be labeled a hypochondriac for being concerned about the health consequences of exposure.
While the brain is technically microwaved through cell phone exposure, few consider it a significant health risk. New research indicates that cell phone usage by pregnant women could be damaging the neurological health of their unborn children. On the flip side, solid research exists showing that, for those who are exposed regularly to these wavelengths, there are natural substances -- one particularly interesting one produced exclusively from bees -- that can reduce their harmful effects.
New peer-reviewed research finds that 30 minutes of exposure to 4G (LTE) cellphone radiation affects brain activity.
Most of us are too busy to notice. We have texting to do, and constant important information to exchange. But something invisible could be harming us. More people are experiencing headaches, tinnitus, brain fog, ear pressures, sleep disorders, neurological symptoms, cardiac, and cancer risks, plus more. There are even mysterious hums that people hear.
The cellphone companies insist the answer is no, and so far the research has offered both sides room for debate. Two new studies shed some light on the issue - providing evidence of a long-term effect for extended cell and wireless use.
