Unborn Mice Memory Affected By Phone Radiations, Says Report

Unborn Mice Memory Affected By Phone Radiations, Says Report

It has been revealed according to a recent report that unborn mice, which were exposed to the radiations of phone, had a poor memory status when they were born. The scientists have, however, stated clearly that this is the sort of effect only seen on mice and there isn’t evidence seen yet that it could have the similar sort of effect on humans.

The study was conducted by a team from the Yale University and they have conducted this study to make findings about attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in kids. There are many children suffering from the same in the world and there is dire need for finding a proper cure for the same. There were rumors that the same might be caused due to excessive exposure to mobile phone radiations.

For the same, there were tests conducted on 33 pregnant mice and it was found that when they were exposed to electromagnetic radiations, the behavior of the unborn offspring was affected by it.

The radiations were exposed to that part of the brain of these mice which is responsible for sending memory signals to the body. The authors of the study were of the view that though the gestation period in mice is merely 19 days, the offspring was affected by this brain disorder. It might then tend to have a great impact on the human brain if the exposure was made and the findings were true for humans as well.

"We don't know if there was a difference in the amount of radiation between the exposed and the control, and it is quite likely the metal apparatus housing the mice took some of radiation away from them”, revealed Professor Croft, the former Executive Director of the Australian Centre for Radio Frequency Bioeffects Research.
