Our cellphone injury lawyers were deeply concerned by the recent study that revealed that 50 non-stop minutes of cell phone use affects brain metabolism in the brain’s region closest to the phone’s antenna.

Using PET scans during cell phone use in both the on and then off position showed that metabolism increased in both the orbitofrontal cortex and the temporal pole areas of the brain. Both are areas that are close to where phone’s antenna meets the head.

Until more definitive information is known our South Florida dangerous product lawyers recommend using hands-free devices or the speaker-phone mode to avoid direct contact with the head.
