Study: Cell Phone Radiation Stirs Brain Activity, but Health Effects Unknown

The study provides perhaps the strongest evidence yet that the weak electromagnetic energy emitted from cell phones can affect the brain.

As PBS NewsHour explains in this story, researchers examined brain scans of people making 50-minute cell phone calls.

The story includes an image of a brain scan and a video including neuroscientist Nora Volkow, the head of the National Institute on Drug Abuse and a lead author of the new study.

CELL PHONE EMISSIONS

Hey! Every electronic device has emissions of electro-magnetic energy [/ radiation]. The key to dissipating this energy is not spending so much time exposed to it. And, [I'm fairly certain] physical activity combined with a 'healthy lifestyle'. Bottom line, don't spend so dang much time using your phone, especially when using it at the side of your head.
