During operation, mobile phones can emit energy in the form of electromagnetic fields, which can be absorbed by a user’s head. However, it is presently unclear whether this electromagnetic energy can cause biological consequences or adverse health effects. Mobile phone usage around the world is enormous and is still on the rise. Currently, it is estimated that there is over 1.7 billion mobile phone users globally. Consequently, if there were to be adverse health implications due to exposures from mobile phones, the effects could be widespread amongst vast populations. It is thus vital that all present and valid possibilities of biological effects due to mobile phone radiated fields be examined and resolved. Various studies so far examining biological effects of mobile phone exposures have included the investigation of potential connections to cancer, cell division, blood pressure alteration, induction of epilepsy, depression in melatonin levels, DNA strand breaks, effects on the eyes, and human cognitive alteration, to name a few. The overall correlation between left and right brainwaves signal for all bands shows decrement for during and after phone calls, thus reducing brainwaves balancing. Therefore, there is evidence that the usage of mobile phones affect the brainwaves.
