In an animal study, DNA breaks occurred in rat brain cells after acute exposure to low-level electromagnetic field (International Journal of Radiation Biology, 1997). Scheduled cell death (apoptosis) which may lead to cancer, was also noted.
Studies of cell phone health hazard using pregnant mice suggest that high electromagnetic radiation exposure can affect intra-uterine development (Sunday Telegraph, Australia, 2 May 1999).
A German study found that cell phone health hazard includes a 5-10 mm Hg increase in blood pressure (Lancet, June 1998).
An American study found that learning and short-term memory were impaired in rats after 45 minutes exposure to cell phone electromagnetic radiation.
A University of Zurich study found that cell phone electromagnetic radiation disturbs sleep patterns. Electromagnetic fields from cell phone used in bed for 30 minutes increases brain activity for up to 50 minutes during early, non rapid eye movement sleep (Sunday Mirror, 15 October 2000).
A study at Nottingham University, UK found that female nematode worms exposed to cell phone electromagnetic radiation produced stress hormones, grew 10% larger, and produced more eggs (New Scientist, 7 February 2002).
This is also one of the common cell phone health hazard affecting many people worlwide.
Slows reaction time, thus can cause accidents or even death if used while driving.
How to reduce cell phone health hazard
2. Use hands-free devices
