A study conducted by researchers at Yale University showed the effects that cell phone radiation could have on mice that were still in the womb. The researchers found that upon exposure to the cell phone radiation, the mice had developmental disabilities when they were born, including Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. The study appeared in the March 15th edition of Scientific Reports. The way the researchers conducted the study was they used a silenced phone in active call mode as well as an inactive cell phone as a control. They placed both these phones on two different cages with pregnant mice. The mice then gave birth and over time, the researchers used a number of tests to monitor brain activity on the mice who had been exposed to cell phone radiation when they were foetuses. The results were that the mice that were exposed to the active phone showed lower memory capacity and were more hyperactive. The researchers concluded that the areas of the brain that controlled these functions were affected by the radiation. They also concluded that these results could be applied to humans and that being exposed to cell phone radiation when gestating could cause ADHD in human offspring.
