Mobile Phone Exposure Harmful for Unborn Mice, Do Humans Face the Same Risks?

Mobile-PhoneNoticing that an unborn mice has suffered severe effects after being exposed to mobile phone radiation, scientists doubt that if the same findings can be translated to humans as well?

In their recent research, the scientists noticed that the unborn mice showed increased risks of behavioral and memory disorders after they were made exposed to mobile phone radiations. The mice became hyperactive adults with poor memory after ran procedure, says researchers, but the concerns here are that these findings could not be translated to even humans.

Concerns regarding the increased number of affected children from behavioral disorders prompted the researchers to run the above Yale University study.

The reports are suggesting that a big population of children is today suffering from childhood behavioral disorders like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with doubts that the increased risks could have some links with the increased mobile phone use.

In order to clear similar doubts, scientists ran an experiment in which they exposed total 33 pregnant mice to electromagnetic radiations that are emitted from a mobile phone. The researchers continued the exposure with an uninterrupted call for 24 hours, the results of which, were later matched to their offspring's behavior and that of a control group as well, which was not a part of any such exposure.

It was noticed from the findings that the exposed mice performed very badly in a series of memory tests than the other group. Researchers concluded that the brain part that is responsible for all these behaviors in mice showed decreased efficiency levels of nerve signals in the group of mice that was exposed to the radiations.

Regarding the situation, senior author Professor Mr. Hugh Taylor said, “We have shown that behavioral problems in mice that resemble ADHD are caused by mobile phone exposure in the womb. The rise in behavioral disorders in human children may be in part due to fetal cellular telephone irradiation exposure”.
