Cell Phone Radiation May Affect Teens’ Memory
[Source: Psych Central]
The rapid rise of information and communication technologies in our daily lives comes with increased exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF). The most common source of exposure to the brain is when a cell phone is held close to the head.
Now a new Swiss study finds that RF-EMF may harm memory performance in the specific brain regions exposed while a person is talking on a cell phone. The study, which involved nearly 700 adolescents in Switzerland, is published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.
