Electromagnetic field and brain development

Electromagnetic field and brain development

Kaplan S. Deniz OG, Önger ME, Türkmen AP, Yurt KK, Aydın I, Altunkaynak BZ, Davis D. Electromagnetic field and brain development. J Chem Neuroanat. 2015 Dec 12. pii: S0891-0618(15)00095-2. doi: 10.1016/j.jchemneu.2015.11.005. [Epub ahead of print]


Rapid advances in technology involve increased exposures to radio-frequency/microwave radiation from mobile phones and other wireless transmitting devices. As cell phones are held close to the head during talking and often stored next to the reproductive organs, studies are mostly focused on the brain. In fact, more research is especially needed to investigate electromagnetic field (EMF)'s effects on the central nervous system (CNS). Several studies clearly demonstrate that EMF emitted by cell phones could affect a range of body systems and functions. Recent work has demonstrated that EMF inhibit the formation and differentiation of neural stem cells during embryonic development and also affect reproductive and neurological health of adults that have undergone prenatal exposure. The aim of this review is to discuss the developing CNS and explain potential impacts of EMF on this system.

In the light of results described here, the effects of species of EMFs on cell biology, apoptosis and neuronal loss are unclear. Given the wide use of mobile communications in everyday life, whether RF-EMF exposure affects brain development is a major concern. The fetus and children brain are more sensitive the electromagnetic exposure. The brain is very sensitive to external factors during this period. Referring to the studies, the cells were observed to be many adverse effects, depending on the severity and duration of the applied EMF. ELF-EMF neuro-degenerative disease was observed on some neuroprotective effects, it is stated that the 900 MHz EMF caused damage in neurons.

In this respect, made it in a variety of electromagnetic frequencies, various immunochemical, biochemical and stereological studies are needed. With advanced technology in everyday life to stay away from the EMF, is almost impossible. Therefore, particular care must be taken when using the power tool. An alternative way to reduce the negative effects of addition may benefit from antioxidant therapy.
