Neurological effects (including motor neurone disease) links
Mobile phone effects on children’s event-related oscillatory EEG during an auditory memory task, Krause et al., 2006. (Note Schumann frequencies)
Cell phone emissions excite the brain cortex. Yet another study showing significant and health-related biological interactions.
Acute mobile phone operation affects neural function in humans, RJ Croft et al., 2002
Effect of electromagnetic fields emitted by cellular phones on the latency of evoked electrodermal activity. Esen and Esen, 2006; ‘the findings point to the potential risks of mobile phones on the function of CNS and consequently, possible increase in the risk of phone-related driving hazards’
Washington University: the story around the Lai and Singh research: the industry doesnt like it. Well worth reading all pages of this article (2005).
Electromagnetic fields and epilepsy. Gautier, Gougeon, Santini (translation from French wanting, but interesting)
Pineal-hypothalamic tract mediation of picotesla magnetic fields in the treatment of neurological disorders, Jacobson: ‘These studies begin to point to the explanation of the mechanism of interaction between non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation and biological systems. Furthermore, the evaluation of the pineal gland as an magneto-sensitive gland may help us understand fundamental conditions in magneto-receptors of biological systems in terms of their piezoelectric nature.’
Does this help explain Nicola’s story?
Nerve Cell Damage in Mammalian Brain after Exposure to Microwaves from GSM Mobile Phones, Salford et al., 2003
Increase in nitric oxide and cyclic GMP of rat cerebellum by radio frequency burst-type electromagnetic field radiation. This indicates that radiation activates NO synthase and ultimately induces vasodilatation. Link to nosebleeds?

Alzheimer mortality: why does it increase so fast in sparsely populated areas? Hallberg and Johansson, 2005. A striking correlation.
Mobile Phone Turns Enzyme Solution into a Gel. Another clue as to how brain damage is caused by mobile phones.
Electrical sensitivity: a growing global concern. How wireless technology may impact child development and central nervous system functioning.
Mobile phone use in rural areas carries three times the cancer risk. Lennart Hardell, Sweden in the Journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine
Mobile phone use and acoustic neuroma, Karolinska Institute press release of Hardell & Mild
EM Fields On Brain Tumor Incidence Chemicals And Cell Phones. This paper is a must read for those interested in non thermal effects EMF (Electromagnetic Fields) particularly the collective cell/neuron response/behavior/properties to stimuli. It is an eye opener and very useful when dealing with vested interests who continually ignore non-thermal effects to promote their wares with self serving rhetoric.
Cell phones and human health. Lloyd Morgan, Brain Tumour Registry, Berkeley CA
No such thing as a benign tumour. Lloyd Morgan, Board of Directors, Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States and the North American Brain Tumor Coalition
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Caused by EMF? Kobe, Japan, study shows 30 seconds mobile phone exposure halves blood flow to the optic nerve. See also our nitric oxide links on why blood flow may be affected
Responses of neurons to an amplitude modulated microwave stimulus, Beason and Semm, 2002
