Cellphones are dangerous/not dangerous, low brain activity edition


Dutch scientists seem to be binging on cellphone studies lately, with their latest research pointing out that frequent mobile phones users have lower brain activity. In the study conducted by Radboud University of Nijmegen and Brainclinics Diagnostic, groups of 100 frequent, infrequent, and non-cell users were compared. Apparently the frequent user's brain activity was the lowest in the groups studied -- though top points were scored on focusing on specific issues -- but still fell with "normal" ranges. So in the future, if you see the number of typos here start to climb rapidly interspersed with fits of drooling, apparently that's the sacrifice we're here to make.
