Mobile Hazard – Use of mobile phones affecting sleep patterns

Fonearena had covered the story of mobile phones affecting sleep patterns according to a research.

Another study funded by the Mobile Manufacturers Association, undertaken by the Electromagnetic Academy based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in the United States, has concluded that mobile phones severely disrupt sleep patterns.

“According to the study, monitoring under laboratory conditions showed the initial ‘light’ phases of sleep in the subjects were affected. In addition, “exposure to 884 MHz wireless signals, components of sleep, believed to be important for recovery from daily wear and tear, are adversely affected.” The research also found that those exposed to mobile phones during their sleep appear to have more headaches, than those not exposed.”

While France has recently become the latest country to advice against excessive use of mobile phones, particularly by children, it is clear that other countries need to follow suit.
