New Study Shows Cell Phone Use Found to Affect Your Brain

After just 50 minutes on a cell phone, the emitted radiation increases the activity in your brain cells, according to a new U.S. government-funded study.  The effects of that brain activity are as yet unknown.

The study was the first to look at how electromagnetic radiation from cell phones affects glucose metabolism in the brain.  When glucose metabolism goes up, it activates cells.

CNN reports:

“Brain activity means that the cells are using glucose to create energy ... Compared with subjects whose phones were turned off, the group whose phones were on had ‘significantly higher’ brain activity in the area closest to the telephone antenna.”
