    Default Schoolchildren Suffering Memory Problems From Using Their Cell Phones

    Bryan Hubbard
    August 1 2018

    Teenagers are always using their cell (mobile) phones—but the radiation from the devices could be affecting their memory and their ability to study at school, a major new study has suggested.
    Memory problems are being seen in adolescents after they've been using a cell phone for just a year, say researchers from the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute.

    Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from the phones affect a non-verbal type of memory known as figural, which is located more on the right-side of the brain.

    All technology comes with risks as well as benefits. I'm glad I'm not raising children any more; these are difficult decisions.

    Memory problems for teenagers who texted & posted on social media were "marginal." Almost all the teenagers I know (my grands & their friends) hate talking on the phone. They rarely talk to each other, or me, on the phone. Their most preferred mode of communication is texting. If I call them, I get their voicemail box, which is almost always full. However, if I text them, I usually get an immediate response. So, perhaps, not as many schoolchildren impacted as the headline seems to suggest.

    Kids today don't even bother with voicemail; the major means of communication remains texting. There appears to me to be a distinct advantage in that you aren't holding your phone to your head. I conduct most of my business via text most of the time. Even adults my age are using it!
