    EMF influences on depression

    Following is an article from irishhealth.com reported by Sylvie in France about an Austalian study! I have not heard about this study but here is what the Irish are saying about it.

    While we are on the topic, about a year ago I had the opportunity to ask Yuri Grigoriev, chairman of the Russian National Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (RNCNIRP) about the possibility that cell phone use by teenagers may be linked to a rise in teenage depression. He verified that this was a known problem from their understanding.


    Can mobiles cause depression?


    [Posted: Mon 12/12/2005]

    An electromagnetic ‘smog’ from mobile phones and electronic goods could be contributing to depression, according to a new study.

    The study, carried out on nearly 70,000 people in Australia between 1968 and 2002, supports the hypothesis that a person’s mood can be influenced by disturbances in the electromagnetic field in our environment and that this can affect our mental health.

    Man-made disturbances in the electromagnetic field are those caused by power distribution grids and electrical devices, such as microwaves and mobile phones.

    The researchers said suicide rates increased during ‘geomagnetic storms’ during the years covered by the study.

    They found that blood pressure was shown to increase significantly for males and females when there was an increase in geomagnetic activity.

    A positive trend was also noticed between geomagnetic activity and subjective psycho-physiological complaints.

    Some commentators, however, feel the results of the Australian study are inconclusive and that there is not enough evidence to date that magnetic field exposure is a cause of depression or suicide.
