Cell Phone Use Before Bed May Cause Health Problems

Now Here's a Freaky Bedtime Story

Can talking on a cell phone before bed result in health complications? That's what the Daily Mail is reporting, repeating that old rumor that radiation from cell phones is to blame.

They say the radiation from your phone causes headaches and insomnia, which leads to lost sleep, and in turn causes a slew of health problems like depression, etc. The lead scientist of the study, which was published by MIT and funded by handset manufacturers, claims that radiation activates the brain's stress system, which makes you more alert and less likely to fall asleep.

Personally, I think a rollicking conversation about your best friend's love life can get your mind racing too, so maybe gabbing is a habit you want to drop right before bedtime, and pick up a good book instead?
