Melbourne: People these days are practically glued to their smartphones, but you should place some distance between yourself and your phone and avoid keeping them in bras and trousers.
Dr. Devra Davis, an American scientist who has been studying the effects of mobile phone radiation for many years, has warned mobile phones could be doing more harm than good, reports News.com.au.
The scientist said mobile phone-like radiation was being used positively in the medical field to treat liver cancer, detect cancer and enhance the absorption of drugs in the brain.
But the reason it is able to do this was because the radiation broke down the blood brain barrier, which protects the brain from foreign substances that may injure it. Hence it can also damage DNA, affect male fertility and change the brain’s metabolism.
And that’s not all- researchers have also found mobile phone use could contribute to the development of depression, diabetes and heart irregularities.
