In August 2019 researchers from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Finland and India published their review on the effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation on the brain and behaviour. The researchers stated that the effects of this radiation, such as that produced by mobile phone technology, has not been evaluated comprehensively which is partly due to the industry’s rapid growth which has out-paced researching ability. Mobile phone technology has therefore reached the fifth generation without being screened extensively for possible effects that might occur in humans or animals. However, there is now mounting evidence that radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation may have an adverse effect on both the brain and behaviour. Some studies have concentrated on the effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation on learning, memory, anxiety, and movement and whilst a review of the medical scientific literature reveals conflicting results, there are numerous reports which suggest that radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation has an effect on behaviour. It is thought that possibly there is a neural basis for these effects.
