Hang up! Radiation from mobile phones can affect your memory

Mobile phone radiationmay affect memory performance in adolescents, according to a new study.

The rapid evolution of information and communication technologies (ICT) goes along with an increase in exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) in our daily life.

The most relevant exposure source to the brain is the use of a mobile phone close to the head.

-Media usage and brain exposure in young adults
The study found that cumulative RF-EMF brain exposure from mobile phone use over one year may have a negative effect on the development of figural memory performance in adolescents, confirming prior results published in 2015. Figural memory is mainly located in the right brain hemisphere and association with RF-EMF was more pronounced in adolescents using the mobile phone on the right side of the head.

“This may suggest that indeed RF-EMF absorbed by the brain is responsible for the observed associations.” said Martin Roosli.
