Cell phone exposure could increase the activity in brain
cells, according to a new study.
The study, published in the Journal of American Medical
Association, looks at how electromagnetic radiation from
cell phones affects glucose metabolism in the brain.
"When glucose metabolism goes up, it activates cells. The
findings are an indication that exposure to cell phones
activate the brain much more easily than we previously
thought," said Dr. Nora Volkow, National Institutes of
Health neuroscientist and lead study author.
The study found that exposure causes the brain cells to use
glucose to create energy. Typically, the brain produces the
normal amount of glucose it needs to function properly.
However, exposure could activate the cells to produce
The study did not determine whether artificial activation of
glucose had a negative affect on health. Phones that were
turned off did not generate brain activity.
The peer-reviewed scientific evidence has overwhelmingly
indicated that wireless devices, within the limits
established by the FCC, do not pose a public health risk or
cause any adverse health effects," said a statement from
John Walls, the vice president for public affairs at CITA,
the wireless industry trade group. "In May 2010, the
Interphone project, coordinated by the International Agency
for Research on Cancer, which was the largest study of cell
phone use and brain tumors ever undertaken and included
substantial numbers of subjects using cell phones for ten
years or longer, found that 'overall, no increase in risk
was observed with the use of mobile phones.
Researchers say the study raises a key question. What are
long-term affects of repeated increased brain activity due
to exposure to cell phone radiation?
"Think of all the millions of cell phone users. Many of them
aren't healthy to begin with, and many others have smaller
brains than the adults in this study. What does it mean for
them?" asked epidemiologist and environmental-health expert
Dr. Devra Davis.
