Cell Phone Radiation Effects on Babies and Fetus

A Yale study on mice came out in March of this year where they found that cell phone radiation exposure during pregnancy could lead to behavioral disorders in the offspring, leading Yale researchers to determine that en utero exposure to cell phone radiation in human fetus may also lead to behavioral disorders.  For more on the paper, read the write up from Yale News.

This study lends support to findings from a US-Danish research conducted in 2008 and again in 2010 with similar results.  Both studies demonstrated that cell phone use during pregnancy was associated with behavioral difficulties such as emotional and hyperactivity problems at age 7 in children.
