Mind Control by Cell Phone
Electromagnetic signals from cell phones can change your brainwaves and behavior. But don't break out the aluminum foil head shield just yet, writes Scientific American.
Could the electrical signals coming from a phone affect certain brainwaves operating in resonance with cell phone transmission frequencies? After all, the caller's cerebral cortex is just centimeters away from radiation broadcast from the phone's antenna.
Two studies provide some revealing news: cell phones alter your behaviour and cause insomnia.
Although this research shows that cell phone transmissions can affect a person's brainwaves with persistent effects on behavior, there is no for concern that cell phones are damaging.
The arousal effects the researchers measured are equivalent to about half a cup of coffee, and many other factors in a person's surroundings will affect a night's sleep as much or more than cell phone transmissions.
