FC: Cell Phone Radiation Triggers Insomnia
1: Extensive cell phone use prior to going to sleep disrupts sleep patterns.
2: Mobile phones release a radiofrequency, which researchers at Uppsala University in Sweden have found that mobile phones release radiofrequencies that lead to insomnia, headaches, and difficulties in concentration.
3: An experiment was conducted with 35 males and 36 females. Some were exposed to 884 MHz wireless signals at different times. The results showed that the adults that reported headaches, longer time to fall asleep, and not sleeping well through the night, were the adults who were exposed to the wireless signals.
4: This is important to me because I need to be informed of the risks or consequences of my cell phone use. As a student, I need to be sure I am getting a sufficient amount of sleep. I cannot do this if I use my cell phone frequently.
5: In this time period, teenagers are always on their cell phones in some way. Students' grades may suffer due to a lack of sleep. Also, health problems could occur if no one is imformed of the dangers of extensive cell phone use before bed.
6: Insomnia- inability to obtain sufficient sleep. Radiofrequency- frequency of waves being transmitted. MHz- megahertz; one million cycles per second. Collaboration- act of collaborating; comprimise. Critical- of decisive importance.
