Study Shows Cell Phones May Harm Unborn Kids!

There's more scary information coming out about cell phone exposure by the second!

pregnant woman holding mobile phone on her belly reports that a new study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, has found that children exposed to cell phones in the womb and after birth, up to age 7, are more likely to experience behavioral problems such as hyperactivity, attention and social issues than those who aren't exposed.

After looking at more than 28,000 children, researchers learned that the more frequently a mom (or mom-to-be) used her cell phone, the greater the risk that her child would develop a behavioral problem. Mind you, as the data was self-reported, there's no way to gauge exactly how much the mothers used their cell phones. Still: Yeeks!

Although scientists have yet to understand exactly how a mom's cell phone use might create behavioral problems in her child, one speculation links cell phone use to an excessive secretion of melatonin, which affects the mom's metabolism and thus the development of the unborn baby's brain. (FYI, factors such as the inattention of the mom and a family history of behavioral problems were ruled out.)

Moms -- especially you pregnant moms out there: Has all this information about the dangers of prenatal exposure to cell phones made you change your phone habits? Do you try not to use your cell phone around your kids? Have you banned your kids from using them?
