Cell Phone Radiation Changes Brain Metabolism
USA Created: 23 Feb 2011
A well-regarded and influential team of researchers from the National Institutes of Health and the Brookhaven National Lab is on the brink of resolving a long-standing dispute with enormous implications for public health.

In a paper due out tomorrow in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Nora Volkow and coworkers are reporting that a 50-minute exposure to cell phone radiation can affect the normal functioning of the human brain.

What is particularly remarkable about the new work is that those regions of the brain that were most highly exposed to phone radiation had the largest increases in metabolic activity.

Whether these short-term changes will lead to health consequences (and what they might be) is far from clear -- though Volkow already has preliminary indications of a long-term effect.

Importantly, this new finding upsets the current orthodoxy because such low-levels EMF effects are thought to be impossible.

Nora Volkow, the lead author of the JAMA study, is the director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. She told Microwave News that she recommends using a wired earpiece when on a mobile phone. She is most senior U.S. health official to come out for precaution.
