First Study on 4G/LTE Cell Phone Radiation Shows It Affects Brain Activity
In a controlled experiment, researchers exposed the right ear of 18 participants to LTE cellphone radiation for 30 minutes. The source of the radiation was 1 centimeter from the ear, and the absorbed amount of radiation in the brain was well within international (ICNIRP) cell phone legal limits. The researchers employed a double-blind, crossover, randomized and counter-balanced design to eliminate any possible study biases.The resting state brain activity of each participant was measured by magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at two times — after exposure to LTE microwave radiation, and after a sham exposure.
The results demonstrated that LTE exposure affected brain neural activity not only in the closer brain region but also in the remote region, including the left hemisphere of the brain. The study helps explain the underlying neural mechanism for the remote effects of microwave radiation in the brain.
This is considerably believable as I've seen several others posts regarding cellphone radiation. I would have never guessed cellphones could be at all dangerous to our health (of course, I was a teen then and thought the world was just against me). However, ever since my mother started getting these circular burn markings on her thighs (all she carried around was her phone in her pocket), I realized that the whole "cellphone radiation" theory wasn't too far off. Good thing I hate talking on the phone all together!
