Medics have been coping for 15 years in a row

People who are used to carrying mobile phones in their pockets should listen to the conclusions of scientists. tubes can reduce bone density in the area of ​​the pelvis where bone grafts are commonly used, researchers in Turkey say. Turkish experts used x-rays to perform absorptiometry (absorption capacity measurement) to determine bone density in the iliac wings of 150 people who are used to wearing mobile phones on their belts.

On average, these people kept their cell phones on their belts for about 15 hours a day, and used cellular communications for an average of six years. In the area of ​​the body where they wore mobile phones, bone density was reduced. True, the degree of decrease in this density was insignificant, it cannot be compared with those bone changes that occur during osteoporosis. However, the subjects were quite young (mean age 32) so that their bone density may decrease even further over time.

Turkish scientists reassure that their conclusions are only preliminary. In addition, every year new generations of mobile phones go on sale, the harmful effects of which on the body can decrease even more. But still, doctors advise keeping cell phones away from our body during work and leisure.
