Using mobile phones while pregnant could make children hyperactive

Women who use mobile phones while pregnant could end up with hyperactive children, according to a recent study.

Women who use mobile phones while pregnant could end up with hyperactive children, according to a recent study.

 
Professor Hugh Taylor of Yale University led a team of scientists studying the effects of radiation from mobile phones on the development of unborn babies' brains, revealing some unsettling findings.
 
As part of the tests pregnant mice were exposed to an active mobile phone, resulting in offspring that suffered from hyperactivity, anxiety and poor memory. Those who were not exposed to this radiation were not affected in this way.
 
 
Of course, since the study involved tests on mice, it cannot be taken as conclusive when it comes to the effects of mobile phone radiation on human mothers and children, but the scientists believe that the results are likely to be the same.
 
Taylor claims that the effects are so strong that that it might explain a growing rise in cases of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
 
However, Professor Eric Taylor of King's College London refuted the claims that mobiles were linked to rising levels of ADHD in children, so the jury is not necessarily out on whether or not mobile phones are causing damage to our kids.
