Cell Phones Increase Brain Metabolism

Cell phone use increases brain glucose metabolism in the region closest to the antennae as per a JAMA article of February 23rd.Whether these changes are due to heat generated by the phone or RF-EMF exposure is unclear. The significance of this finding is also unclear. Researchers are divided about the risk of brain cancer and cell phone use. Some researchers have also suggested a neuro-protective effect that exposure to electromagnetic waves in mice decreases the accumulation of amyloid in mice (the protein found in excess in the brains of those with Alzheimer's) J Alzheimer's Dis 2010;19(1):191-210
