Mobile phone radiation keeps our phones working but it also has some pretty serious side effects. More and more people are looking at the effects mobile phones are having on their health. Can phone radiation cause headaches? Is this something to be worried about?
Some people experience an extreme reaction to electromagnetic fields. This can include headaches, migraines, nausea, dizziness and palpitations. These people go to extreme lengths to avoid phone radiation, like insulating their homes or moving to the countryside.
Most people won’t have symptoms that severe. But if you have regular headaches you might want to think about whether your phone is at fault.
EMF – electromagnetic frequencies – like phone radiation are all around. Most household appliances emit EMF. Mobile phones are a bit different because we carry them with us nearly all day, put them to our heads and many people even sleep with them.
The students who did a famous experiment showing the effect of wifi signals on the growth of cress said that they could feel the difference when they slept with their phones. They had trouble sleeping and found it hard to concentrate in class the next day. Keeping a phone under your pillow or next to your bed means that you are within the field of radiation.
In Italy, a man was awarded a landmark judgement in a legal case, that said that his mobile phone was responsible for causing a tumour in his brain. Although it didn’t lead to cancer he did lose the hearing in one ear.
Given some of that evidence, “can phone radiation cause headaches?” is a good question to be asking.
