Impact of Stress and Radiation of Cellular Phones on Heart and its Functions

Ali Hussein Faraj Alnasraui ;

Abstract

The furious rate of technological change and growth in mobile products has made it very popular for users to get occupied in these devices. Smartphone revolution has made the users to use cellular phones more frequently which often results in stress factors causing severe impact over brain cells and heart functions. This article deals with the stress affecting heart. The research was conducted on a group of students under normal and vibration modes of mobile phones. Different types of phone modes and the stress generated by them which affects the heart are analysed. It is noted that human heart is sensitive to stress generated by Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) emitted from cellular phones in normal mode rather any other modes resulting in drastic changes of heart rate. Strong artificial EMFs can enter the body and interfere with the natural way the body works. This can affect virtually any system within the body from stress levels to DNA. The investigations are done by an electrocardiogram unit which depicts the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) i.e., the fluctuations in the heart rate from the average heart rate. HRV is regulated by the autonomous nervous system which decreases as the heart rate increases. The variation in heart rate is determined by means of ECG which records the electrical activity of the heart. Based on the results, significant analysis of stress recovery factors is performed.
