Cell Phone Radiation May Cause ADHD-Like Symptoms
A recent study has found that cell phone radiation may interfere with sleep, which may cause added health problems--including ADHD-like symptoms.
Monday January 21st - 1:58pm
The findings of a study sponsored by the Mobile Manufacturers Forum (an industry group that represents cell phone makers) indicate that the radiation produced by cell phone may cause sleep disturbances. The researchers found that, when they are used before bed, cell phones may delay and shorten the deep stages of sleep.
These deep sleep stages are important in allowing the body and brain to recuperate from daily wear and tear. The interference in the sleep cycle caused by late-night cell phone use may cause depression, mood swings, and ADHD-like symptoms, especially in children and teens.
The study, done by researchers at the Karolinska Institute and Uppsala University in Sweden, in conjunction with colleagues at Wayne State University in Michigan, is the most comprehensive to date. It will be published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium.
