Do mobile phones harm your brain?

Using mobile phones does affect your brain but the changes were no bigger than what happens when you are actually just using your brain, according to US research..

So we are no nearer knowing whether or not there are health implications in the constant use of mobile phones.

In experiments at the US National Institute for Health where mobile phones were attached to people’s heads whilst their brains were scanned the brain metabolism was 7% higher in that part of the brain nearest the phone’s antenna.

Scientists in the UK at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London said that larger fluctuations can be cause by just thinking.
