What would you do without your cell phone?! Well, you might be a bit healthier sans phone, according to a new study.
The European Research Institute for Electronic Components in Bucharest found that cell phones may lead to heart disease and kidney stones, according to Switched.com.
How is this possible? The study found that cell phones emit radiation, which causes red blood cells to leak hemoglobin, according to Softpedia.com. The hemoglobin then accumulates in the body, which can lead to health complications including heart disease or kidney stones.
This new study is just one in a series of studies about the ills of cell phone use. Researchers at Sweden's Lund University found that exposure to cell phone radiation could cause proteins and toxins to leak into the brain, according to Softpedia.com. This can lead to Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's.
And here's something even more disturbing: average cell phone ownership is up to two per person, according to Switched.com. That's a lot of extra radiation!
The Federation of the Electronics Industry claims that there is no conclusive proof that cell phones are a health hazard, according to Softpedia.com.
