Could Cell Phone Radiation Disrupting the Blood-Brain Barrier Also Be Playing A Role?
Everybody knows that smartphones are distracting and sometimes addictive. Research has also determined that exposure to all sources of wireless radiation – including from cell phones – affects the brain (see 1, 2, 3, 4) AND disrupts the blood-brain barrier which can cause it to leak and kill brain cells.
Thanks to The Hill for reporting about increased injuries and ER visits due cell phone distraction:
Modern sidewalks are filled with people who aren’t paying attention to their surroundings. Where are they looking instead? Their phones. Now, researchers estimate that the ubiquitous distraction of our cell phones has caused 76,043 emergency room visits in the United States over the last 20 years, the Washington Post reports.
When phones became smart, internet-connected devices in the mid-2000s the study found that injuries involving tripping, falling and walking into things because of phone use increased.
Half of the injuries were cuts, scrapes and bruises, but 18 percent were classified as injury to an internal organ — mostly concussions and mild traumatic brain injuries.
