New Study Shows Pregnant Women Need to Avoid Exposure to Cell Phones

Researchers have found evidence that when pregnant women use cell phones regularly, their children are more likely to have behavioral problems.

The scientists examined data from 28,000 seven year old children and their mothers. Children whose mothers used cell phones while pregnant were 40 percent more likely to have behavioral problems. If the children themselves used cell phones, this rose to a 50 percent likelihood.

Reuters reports:

“[The researchers] tried to account for other possible causes, such as whether women who used cell phones were different from women who did not, especially during the time of their pregnancies when cellphone use was less common than it is now.”
