Mobile Phones Decrease Bone

A small study done at the National University of Cuyo in Argentina tested the bone mineral density (BMD) and bone mineral content of men (BMC). Half wore cell phones on their hips and half did not.

The results stated that men who wear cell phones on their hips showed a reduction in both BMD and BMC over a 12-month period. This could have far-reaching consequences for both men and women; more research is being done.
