A new study has shown EEG changes due to 3G mobile phone radiation is real. The brain wave disrupting activity only takes 15 minutes of “talk time” when the phone is held to the ear.
The research tested 31 healthy women who were measured twice. First when the phone was attached to the ear, and then when it was attached to the chest.
Findings were published online in the June 8 edition of PLoS One.
The women in the test showed significant radiation effects for the alpha, slowbeta, fastbeta, and gamma bands when the phones were placed at the ear, but no measurable impact was recorded when the phone was placed on the chest.
Conclusions support that EEG alterations are associated with mobile phone usage, and the effect is dependent on site of placement.
The paper notates previous research that has found mobile phone exposure impacting alpha brain wave activity, and can lead to insomnia, this study was the first placebo-controlled, single-blinded study of its kind.
Furthermore, this study shows that 15 minutes of 3G cell phone technology exposure directly to the ear can increase activity of the alpha, beta, and gamma frequency bands in nearly every brain region.
In summary, 15 minutes of mobile phone exposure results in measurable electrophysiological brain wave changes in nearly the entire brain’s structure and function.
