Being away from your mobile phone can ruin your concentration, boost your blood pressure and even make you feel sick

  • Team found moving away phones resulted in poorer cognitive performance
  • Resulted in an increase heart rates and blood pressure levels 
  • Participants also reported feelings of anxiety and unpleasantness

Mobile phone addiction has become a major problem – and being away from our handsets can impair our cognitive functions and even make us feel physically unwell, researchers have found.

One of the the first major studies to look as what happens when people are separated from their phones has found we perform poorly on mental tasks when our is not nearby.

It found separation can result in an increase heart rates and blood pressure levels as well as feelings of anxiety and unpleasantness.

Researchers studied a number of iPhone users in the test.

‘Our findings suggest that iPhone separation can negatively impact performance on mental tasks,’ Russell Clayton, a doctoral candidate at the University of Missouri School of Journalism and lead author of the study in the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication said.

‘Additionally, the results from our study suggest that iPhones are capable of becoming an extension of our selves such that when separated, we experience a lessening of ‘self’ and a negative physiological state.’ 


Binaural Beats

If you play 2 sound waves that are very close in frequency (but not quite exactly the same), you’ll get a phenomenon that causes beat frequencies between the 2 sound waves. As it turns out, if you play these 2 frequencies separately into your 2 different ears, your brain tries to resolve the difference between the 2 frequencies and “hears” the beat frequency even though it isn’t there.

Early research indicated addictive nature of microwave exposure

Following is a 2001 New York Times interview with Eleanor Adair….

“I would say this indicated an addictive reaction that could have led to further research if it had been followed up on. For example, if a population of monkeys were chronically exposed to microwaves what would be their social reaction with each other when exposure was stopped?”
“Microwaves, she points out, are at the other end of the electromagnetic spectrum from high energy radiation like X-rays and gamma rays. And unlike gamma rays and X-rays, which can break chemical bonds and injure cells, even causing cancer, microwaves, she says, can only heat cells. Of course, if cells get hot enough, they can die, but the heat level has to be closer to that in an oven than the extremely low level from cell phones.”
