Use of cellular phones has become so important part of our lives that we do not want to part with this tiny device even while driving, watching movies, visiting friends or even while resting. Women take more time on the cellular phones than men, studies reveal.
But the findings of a new study may be a FORE WARNING for expecting mothers. as per the research carried out on expecting mice, the unborn offspring of mice which were subjected to the radiation of cellular phones, showed signs of ADHD when they grew up.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or commonly known as ADHD is a problem with inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity, or a combination. For these problems to be diagnosed as ADHD, they must be out of the normal range for a child's age and development. ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed behavioral disorder of childhood. It affects about 3 - 5% of school aged children. ADHD is diagnosed much more often in boys than in girls.
The tests showed that the mice had lower memory capacity and were more hyperactive than the control group. The areas of the brain that control these functions were impacted by the radiation, say the researchers. They concluded that cellphone radiation negatively impacted brain development of offspring, and could potentially cause developmental disabilities including ADHD.
It may be added that Cellphones have been linked to causing everything from the mass death of bee colonies to a willingness to sacrifice one’s sex life and relationships. Dozens of studies and researchers have debated the issue of whether or not radiation from cellphones causes cancer. It’s an issue still up for debate.
