Mobile Phones: What is the risk for children’s health?

Especially pregnant women and families with small children should know about how prejudicial to the health of their children may be an intensive use of mobile phones. Children and mobile phones: dait simply does not belong together, and you should already be careful during pregnancy to keep the phone as far away from the baby bump. The small brain of the child may take the radiation damage. Above all, thereby increasing the risk of ADHD and conduct disorder to develop.Phones and children

The Study.

An animal study indicates that the increasingly frequent neurological disorders in children – diseases such as Attention Deficit Disorder, Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) – with exposure to high-frequency radiation that mobile phones are connected, created in the womb.Researchers at the “Yale School of Medicine” positioned a mobile phone via a cage of pregnant mice. With this phone an uninterrupted transmission of active calls for the entire 17 days of pregnancy was carried out.

As the offspring of these mice was tested later, showed these signs of ADHD, including reduced transfers in the prefrontal cortex of the brain.

To the researchers, and the study results:

The prefrontal cortex (PFC) is responsible for such functions as, distractions and maintaining the attention and goal-directed behavior. A reduction of PFC leads to dysregulated behavior and disturbance of emotions such as in ADHD led the researchers from:

Mice that were exposed to cell phone radiation during pregnancy, show memory impairments , were hyperactive and had reduced fears , which indicates that an in-utero exposure to radiofrequency radiation is a possible cause for various neurological disorders. This exposure, arising from the use of mobile phones in pregnancy, a comparable effect on the fetus as others, also occurring often neurologically acting toxins.

It is well known that children are more susceptible to damage caused by a cell phone use than adults because they have:

  • Thinner skull bones
  • Smaller brains
  • Soft brain tissue
  • Very many rapidly dividing neurons.

During the critical period of neurogenesis (regeneration of neurons) the brain is particularly vulnerable to many environmental problems, including the most common medically relevant exposures:

  • Ionizing radiation (including electromagnetic radiation)
  • Alcohol
  • Tobacco
  • Drugs
  • Stress.

What health problems are associated with mobile phone radiation?

In 2008, the researchers analyzed data from nearly 13,000 children and found that exposure to mobile phones in the womb in children leads to more behavior problems.

The study found that children of mothers who had used cell phones during pregnancy, often by 54 percent suffer from behavioral problems were.

80 percent more likely to have behavioral problems.

25 percent show a higher risk of emotional problems.

35 percent were hyperactive likely.

Then, in 2010, the researchers examined in a larger group of children – nearly 29,000 – and additional variables.

How can you reduce your mobile phone use as a (expectant) mother:

You can help to minimize the exposure of your family to electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones and other wireless devices by observing some guidelines. We acknowledge compliance with these rules is not easy but certainly possible. It requires time and consistency and above all you have to bear in mind that this is about the mental health of children. The rules to reduce cell phone radiation, we have put together for you on the blog:

How is cell phone radiation can reduce easily and significantly: a “to-do list”

Here are some examples of the anti-radiation-to-do list:

  • Children should always avoid the use of mobile phones: Apart from a life-threatening emergency, children shouldn’t play with a mobile phone or a wireless device.
  • If you can leave your phone more often.
  • Reserve the use for emergencies or truly important matters: As long as your mobile phone is turned on, it emits radiation intermittently, even if you do not really have a conversation. If you are pregnant, your cell phone use the prevention or reduction is particularly important.
  • Use at home and in the workplace a landline.
