Radiation alert: Cellphone exposure can weaken bones

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

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.
