A new study by UCLA and and Danish researchers has raised
another cell phone health issue.
After surveying more than 13,000 children, the scientists
have concluded that women who used a cell phone while
pregnant are much more likely to have unruly children.
While previous health studies have linked radiation from
cell phones with potential tumor formation, this is the
first research to tie cell phone use to behavioral issues.
The researchers said children of mothers who used cell
phones while pregnant, even infrequently, ran a higher risk
of developing hyperactivity and difficulties with conduct,
emotional control, and relationships by the time they
started school. The risk increased if the children
themselves used cell phones before age seven.
Since the researchers could not pinpoint a reason that cell
phone use could affect behavior, critics may suggest that
the link may not actually exist. Instead, the link might be
explained by cultural factors. The researchers themselves do
not discount that notion. They admit the results could have
other reasons, such as that mothers who tended to talk on
the phone a lot might pay less attention to their children.
They say the study "should be interpreted with caution" and
checked by further studies.
The risk of behavioral problems may pale in comparison to
the possible effects of radiation highlighted earlier this
year by British health researcher Dr. Vini Khurana.
"Mobile phones could have health consequences far greater
than asbestos and smoking," he said. Khurana a neurosurgeon
who has published more than 30 scientific papers reviewed
more than 100 studies on the effects of mobile phones. He
has written a paper based on the research, which is
currently being peer-reviewed for publication in a
There have been a number of health warnings over the years
about possible radiation risks associated with the use of
mobile phones. In case anyone is not taking these warnings
seriously, British health researcher Dr. Vini Khurana puts
it in language designed to get your attention: "Mobile
phones could have health consequences far greater than
asbestos and smoking," he said.
Khurana a neurosurgeon who has published more than 30
scientific papers reviewed more than 100 studies on the
effects of mobile phones. He has written a paper based on
the research, which is currently being peer-reviewed for
publication in a scientific journal. Is he exaggerating?
Khurana says the numbers bear him out. He points out that
three billion people around the world now use a cell phone.
That's three times the number of people who smoke, and
smoking amounts for some five million worldwide deaths each
year. But are cell phones really a serious risk? Khurana
expresses little doubt, saying "there is a significant and
increasing body of evidence for a link between mobile phone
usage and certain brain tumors."
The risks, he says, will become even more apparent in the
Khurana believes governments should act immediately, but
stops short of saying exactly what they should do.
Separating people from their cell phones, at this point,
might be beyond the reach of any earthly power.Meanwhile,
the cell phone industry remains unconvinced. Britain's
Mobile Operators Association dismissed his study as "a
selective discussion of scientific literature by one
In the U.S., exploration of a possible link between mobile
phones and health is moving at a slower pace. In January the
National Academy of Sciences reported on its review of
scientific evidence, requested by the Food and Drug
Administration, by identifying areas where more research is
needed. Among the research requested by the Academy are
human population studies of children and pregnant women,
including childhood cancers and brain cancer; and a study of
adults in the general population, comparing them with a
group with medium to high exposure to mobile phones.
