A new study conducted by the National Institutes of Health links cell phone use with increased brain activity. Apparently less than one hour of exposure to an active cell phone can result in increased glucose production in brain regions closest to the phone’s antennae. Joining us to explain the findings is Lauren Emberson, cognitive neuroscientist and researcher at Brown University.
Dr. Devra Davis, founding director of the toxicology and environmental studies board at the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, discusses the recent and long-suppressed research on the dangers of cell phone radiation. In Disconnect: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Has Done to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family, Davis reveals the dark side of these ubiquitous gadgets and the trillion-dollar industry behind them.
