No such thing as 'a quick call'

Using a CATEEN scanner, Dr. Michael Klieeisen and colleagues at the Spanish Neuro Diagnostic Research Institute in Marbella produced the first images showing:

  • how radiowaves from mobile phones penetrate deep into the brain, not just around the ear
  • that a mobile phone call lasting just two minutes (Ed.- often recommended as pretty safe, at least for adults) can alter the natural electrical activity of a child’s brain for up to fifty minutes

Previously it was thought that any interference of brain chemistry and brain waves stopped when the call stopped.

Michael was concerned that regular exposure to mobile phone radiation might damage children’s immune systems, and could cause psychiatric problems, aggressive behaviour, lack of concentration and memory loss, all of which reduce the ability to learn. He also feared that using mobiles during break times might disrupt behaviour in the classes which follow.

Dr. Gerald Hyland, a UK Government adviser on mobiles, found the results “extremely disturbing”: “It makes one wonder whether children, whose brains are still developing, should be using mobile phones,” he stated. “(It) could lead to things like aggressive behaviour, lack of concentration and memory loss, affecting their learning ability in the classroom if they have been using a phone during break time, for instance.”


This was not a formally published study.
