“Are cell phones having an impact on our brains?
The answer just got a little clearer when a February study in the Journal of the American Medical Association asserted unequivocally that, yes, cell phones change brain activity.
“This study shows that the human brain is sensitive to electromagnetic radiation coming out of cell phones,” study author Nora Volkow told The Wall Street Journal. “Our finding does not tell us if this is harmful or not.” Like a similar study backed by the World Health Organization last May, Volkow’s study concluded it will take more research to ascertain just how harmful. Regardless, since four in five American adults already own one, it’s urgent that we take precautions with cell phones.”
