We're not really sure if this is good or bad news, but a
recent government-funded study shows radiation emitted after
just 50 minutes on a mobile phone increases the activity in
The actual effects of this activity are unknown, but the
researchers findings are enough to call for more studies.
Published in the Journal of American Medical Association,
this is the first study to specifically look at how
electromagnetic radiation from cell phones affects glucose
metabolism, a normal function, in brain the brain.
The study's lead author, Dr. Nora Volkow, says:
"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
Unfortunately, the study doesn't say whether this increased
cellular activation has a negative effect on our brain.
However, do not fear. The CTIA, the wireless industry trade
group, has found no evidence that cell phones are a danger
to our health. John Walls, the group's vice president for
public affairs, said in a statement:
"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. 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.'"
Phew! So if there is no negative effect…maybe there will be
a positive! Maybe cell phones are actually increasing the
activity and making us super smart!
Or, maybe not.
Researchers are now looking at long-term cell phone usage,
as Dr. Volkow explains:
"We need to rule out that there is a not long-lasting effect
in healthy people. We don't know what repeated exposure and
artificial activation of the glucose will have on the
So the question remains: What are the long term effects of
radiation emitted from cell phones on our brains?
Only time will tell as the research continues, but for now,
we'll take comfort in knowing cell phones aren't going to
make our brains explode anytime soon.
