The EMRadiation Policy Institute

Jun 16, 2013 —  Fetal exposure to cellphone radiation linked to later behavior and cognitive problems similar to ADD in mice - a controlled study (http://news.yale.edu/2012/03/15/cell-phone-use-pregnancy-may-cause-behavioral-disorders-offspring).  These findings support the findings of a large (over 13,000 child) epidemiological study that found that children whose mothers use cellphones during and after pregnancy are at greater risk for behavior problems (http://www.researchgate.net/publication/5383548_Prenatal_and_postnatal_exposure_to_cell_phone_use_and_behavioral_problems_in_children/file/9fcfd510253a3426cb.pdf).

Cell phone use in pregnancy may cause behavioral disorders in offspring
Cell phone use in pregnancy may cause behavioral disorders in offspring
Exposure to radiation from cell phones during pregnancy affects the brain development of offspring, potentially leading to hyperactivity, Yale School of Medicine researchers have determined. The results, based on studies in mice, are published in the March 15 issue of Scientific Reports, a Nature publication.
