  • Children with cell phone exposure had higher odds of migraines and headache-related symptoms than children with no exposure.

Szyjkowska A, Gadzicka E, Szymczak W, Bortkiewicz A. The risk of subjective symptoms in mobile phone users in Poland - An epidemiological study. Int J Occup Med Environ Health. 2014 Apr 1.
  • Headaches were reported significantly more often by the people who talked frequently and long in comparison with other users.  Continuous headache, persisting for longer than 6 hrs since the end of a call, was reported by 26% of the subjects.  Our results show that the mobile phone users may experience subjective symptoms, the intensity of which depends on the intensity of use of mobile phones.

  • Headache associated with mobile phone use usually showed stereotyped clinical features including mild intensity, a dull or pressing quality, localisation ipsilateral to the side of MP use, provocation by prolonged cell phone  use and often accompanied by a burning sensation.

  • A nationwide, cross-sectional study, using the computer assisted telephone interview (CATI) technique, was conducted in 2009 to collect information on children's utilization of MPs and the perceived health symptoms reported by their parents.
  • RESULTS: Mobile Phone use was associated with a significantly increased adjusted odds ratio  for headaches and migraine  and skin itches. Children who regularly used Mobile phones were also considered to have a health status worse than it was 1 year ago .
  • CONCLUSION: Although the cross-sectional design precludes the causal inference for the observed association, our study tended to suggest a need for more cautious use of MPs in children, because children are expected to experience a longer lifetime exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) from mobile phones.


"I get headaches when I use my phone too much"


Heard that before?  Research has actually linked headaches in children to  wireless radiation.  The Israeli Supreme Court is in the midst of ruling on the issue of wireless after parents raised the issue when their children became sick after WiFi was installed.
Listen to Charlene Acres describe how her daughter became sensitive to wireless radiation and the challenges her daughter has faced in school. 

"Oh My! What's in WiFi"
