Radiation alert: Cellphone exposure can weaken bones

WASHINGTON: A new study has revealed that electromagnetic radiation from cellular phones may adversely affect bone strength.

Men who routinely wear their cellphones on their belt on the right side have reduced bone mineral content (BMC) and bone mineral density (BMD) in the right hip, according to the study by Dr Fernando D Sravi of National University
of Cuyo, Mendoza , Argentina.

He said, “The different patterns of right-left asymmetry in femoral bone mineral found in mobile users and nonusers are consistent with a non-thermal effect of electromagnetic radiofrequency waves not previously described.”
Dr Sravi measured BMC and BMD at the left and right hip in two groups of healthy men: 24 men who did not use cellphones and 24 men who carried their mobiles in a belt pouch, on the right side, for at least one year.

Test results revealed average hip BMC and BMD measurements were not significantly different between groups. However, men who did not use cellphones had higher BMC in the right femoral neck (near the top of the thigh bone), a normal left-right difference that was absent in cell phone users. Thus, men who wore their cellphones on the right side had a relative reduction in femoral neck BMC in that hip.
