Cell Phone Exposure Tied to
Misbehavior in Kids
Home Radiation Protection
Study conducted on pregnant women in Denmark, who regularly
used mobile phones, found that they were more inclined to
have children with abnormal behavioral problems.
The risk was higher when the kids themselves began using
cell phones at a very early age, researchers reported in the
Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
Leeka Kheifets of the University of California at Los
Angeles and colleagues examined the health records of 28,000
seven-year-olds and their mothers enrolled in the Danish
National Birth Cohort.
The survey, which included nearly 100,000 women between 1996
and 2002, was designed to track the long-term health of the
Mothers supplied detailed information about their
lifestyles, diet and habits during and after pregnancy,
including cell phone use.
When their kids reached the age of seven, moms were again
quizzed on their own and their children's health and
The researchers found that kids who had been exposed to
mobile phones both before and after birth were 50 percent
more likely to have behavioral problems.
The findings held true even after factors that might have
skewed the outcome were taken into account, they said.
Kids exposed to cell phones only while in the womb were 40
percent more likely to show abnormal behavior, with the
percentage dropping to a fifth for children whose first
access to the devices occurred after they were born.
The results mirror an earlier study by the researchers of
13,000 other mothers and their kids enrolled in the same
