The number of headaches, vertigo and sleeping problems per month were significantly associated with the total time Enzalutamide concentration mobile phones were used in talk mode. When all self-reported symptoms for each student were taken into account and a total severity score was
calculated, all students were classified in four groups according to their total score. Again the frequency of students with strong or very strong symptoms among mobile phone users was significantly higher than what was expected. These findings are somehow in line with a recent report which concluded that Inhibitors,research,lifescience,medical mobile phone use was associated with changes in cognitive function in young adolescents.23 Altogether, results obtained in our study
are in line with those of some groups (sponsored by some European governments), which have advised that children should be Inhibitors,research,lifescience,medical discouraged from using mobile phones at all. For example, in December 2000, the Stewart group from the United Kingdom reported that the widespread use of mobile phones by children for non-essential Inhibitors,research,lifescience,medical calls should be discouraged.9 The group also recommended that the mobile phone industry should refrain from promoting the use of mobile phones by children. Stewart group believed that children were more vulnerable to health effects of radiofrequency because of their developing nervous system, the greater absorption of energy in the tissues of the head, and a longer life time of exposure. Based on the results obtained in our study, children may be considered a relatively high risk proportion of the population. It should be noted that according to a recent report, although there is no clear evidence of adverse health effects associated Inhibitors,research,lifescience,medical with RF fields, continued Inhibitors,research,lifescience,medical research is recommended to address health effects of exposure to RF fields emitted by mobile phones among children.24 Another report states that children, depending on their age, should be considered at a relatively higher potential risk compared to adults. They concluded that if adults are advised to minimize
their exposure, such an advice is even more justified for children.15,25 Results obtained in our study generally confirm the reports recommending a restriction in the use of mobile phones in high-risk groups such as elderly, children and ill people.26 Conclusion Lack of ionizing radiation and the low energy level emitted from Electron transport chain mobile phones had initially led to the public perception that mobile phone was safe. However, the dramatic increase in the use of mobile phones, especially among children and adolescents, has caused great concerns about its potential adverse effects. An increasing number of people report subjective symptoms and hypersensitivity to a wide variety of electromagnetic sources including power lines, radio and TV broadcasting stations, mobile phones, and computer monitors.
