A new clinical study has found that just 15 minutes of cell phone talk time and the radiation that this exposes you to can alter the structure and function of the brain. This includes brain wave activity that is connected to cognition, mood and behavior.
Thirty-one healthy females took part in the study. EEG activity and radio frequency radiation were measured and recorded during each assessment. Each of the women was measured twice. On one of the days, the mobile phone was attached to their ears and a dummy (sham) phone to their chest. On the other day, the dummy (sham) phone was attached to their ears and the real cell phone to their chest.
SIGNIFICANT RESULTS WERE FOUND WHEN THE CELL PHONE WAS PLACED NEXT TO THE EAR
The results were significant but hardly startling. Dependence of the results on where one places the cellular phone while talking should be underlined.
It should be noted that this is the first placebo-controlled, single-blind study of its kind to show that as little as 15 minutes of 3G cell exposure directly to the ear is associated with increased activity of the alpha, beta and gamma frequency bands in nearly every brain region.
The implications of this research are far reaching. Since brain waves are believed to determine behavior, altering brain wave activity could affect behavior and consciousness. The ability of cell phone radiation to affect behavior has been suspected for a long time.
A real estate agent named Alan Marks suffered a seizure caused by a brain tumor located next to where he held his cell phone. He began to exhibit behavioral changes several years prior to the incident. The behavioral changes were thought to be caused by the tumor developing in the part of the brain related to empathy and reason.
Previous research from Brain Science Institute, Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, found that cell phone radiation significantly boosted alpha waves in the brain. Another study carried out by the Loughborough University Sleep Research Center in England found that not only could cell phone radiation alter a person’s behavior during the call, but also brain-wave patterns continued to be disrupted long afterwards. Some of the test subjects had difficulty falling asleep.
FEARS ABOUT THE HEALTH EFFECTS OF 4G PHONES
Lucky for us living in Turkey that our illustrious president said NO to going from G3 to G4; he imposed G4.5 on the country. Does G4.5 even exist??? Could it be less harmful than G4????
Kidding aside though, fourth generation (G4) cell phone technology is gaining popularity rapidly. The increased performance, relative to G3, may, however, come at a price to your health.
A 2013 study found that 30 minutes of exposure to 4G-cell phone radiation might alter brain wave activity even more than 3G technology. The 4G radiation exposures were found to effect activity on both sides of the brain.
WHY HAS THE PUBLIC BEEN KEPT IN THE DARK ABOUT THE POTENTIALLY LETHAL EFFECTS OF CELL PHONE RADIATION?
Many of the studies on cell phone exposure come up either null or inconclusive. WHY, you might ask. According to an INDEPENDENT study carried our by Dr. Andrew Marino, 87 % of such studies looking at the effects of electromagnetic radiation from cell phones were/are funded by the telecommunications industry.
This should ring a bell for most of you.
- Big Agro and High Fructose Corn Syrup, GMO labeling, etc.,
- Big Pharma and Statin Drugs, Chemotherapy, etc.
Other examples abound. This is the ugly face of SAVAGE CAPITALISM.
LETS SEE WHAT WE CAN DO TO MINIMIZE THE DANGERS OF CELL PHONE USE
1. Use ear phones/plugs
2. Don’t carry your cell phone over your heart
3. Don’t carry it in such a way that it touches your skin
Many cases of breast cancer have been reported on this.
5. Try to minimize its use and keep it charged all the time because it emits more radiation when the battery is lo.
