What does science say about using smartphones and wifi?
When it comes to demonstrating the negative effects of prolonged use of smartphones and wifi, scientific studies are not what is missing! Several researchers around the world agree that they have very negative effects on the health of children, fetuses and even animals.

According to a study conducted by a team of researchers at the University of Utah in the United States, electromagnetic fields emitted by smartphones, and wifi receivers have a negative impact on the mental abilities of children, because they are more sensitive to radiation. The image below shows the brain of a 5-year-old child exposed to electromagnetic fields (left), the brain of a 10-year-old child exposed to electromagnetic fields (in the middle), and finally the brain of a adult person exposed to electromagnetic fields (right).

Another study by the Brookhaven national laboratory in the United States has also shown that a 50-minute exposure to the electromagnetic fields of smartphones is capable of causing an increase in glucose metabolism in the brain. This can cause several dysfunctions such as: impaired mental abilities, concentration problems, stress and insomnia.
