My Research Topic
My research paper is going to pretty much be focusing on the effects of radiations fom mobile phones. More specifically, what the effects using a cell phone may have on an unborn child. A team led by Dr. Hugh S. Taylor, professor and chief of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences at Yale, conducted an experiment using mice and a 3 cell phones, one active, one on mute, and a deactivated phone for the control. According to the recent study, mobile phone radiation exposure in the womb of a pregnant mother can affect the brain development of the child and potentially lead to behavioral disorders such as hyperactivity. Indeed the definition of ADHD is based on behavior instead of a neurological disease, a developmental lag in the brain has been linked with magnetic resonance.
There has also been a global study on link between cell phones and brain cancer; however the studies came up inconclusive. I will go into further details about the studies in my paper along with my opinion and future possibilities to avoid the ehealth risks which come along with an everyday gadget like the cellophone.
