  • 3. The attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD):  Symptoms include:  difficulty staying focused and paying attention  difficulty controlling behavior  hyperactivity (over-activity).
  • 4. Prenatal high exposure to cell phone use provokes attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in the offspring.
  • 5. To determine if the prenatal high exposure to cell phone use causes attention- deficit/hyperactivity disorder
  • 6. Raise awareness in pregnant women about the use of cell phones. Google.com

First Phase:  A big group of recently pregnant women will be asked to fill a questionnaire  Time they spent a day talking through cell phones.  Another questionnaire will be filled by these mothers about the behavior of their children  Children of 3 to 6 years old.  Questions included: Are their children using cell phones? How much time?  It will be determined how many children are diagnosed with ADHD.
  • 8. Second Phase:  Expose pregnant hamsters to electromagnetic radiation equivalent to cell phones exposure.  Frequencies:  900 MHz  1.9 GHz  2.4-GHz  5.8 GHz  Groups and time intervals:  Group 1= 3 hours a day  Group 2= 6 hours a day  Control group: no exposure
  • 9.  Propose pregnant women to use cell phones with low frequencies of electromagnetic radiation or use them for short periods.  Research about the effects of high exposure to cell phone use in the behavior or health of children, adolescents and adults.
