Mobile Phone Emissions Have An Effect

The safety of mobile phones is under fresh scrutiny following the discovery that their emissions have an unexpected effect on living creatures.

Microwaves similar to those emitted by mobile phones have been found to increase the likelihood of nematode worms producing eggs. The research by British scientists does not suggest mobile phones can affect human fertility, but the results are potentially far-reaching. The researchers say the effect is nothing to do with the way microwave radiation heats up cells, and they are still looking for an explanation. But the results provide the first clear evidence mobile phone radiation may have biological effects without warming tissues. Mild heating would normally make larval worms infertile as adults.
