In past seven years Cell phones have become somewhat a necessity in very Dominican everyday life.

In fact cell phones has become one of the biggest consumer products throughout the Caribbean; prices of Cell phones are dropping faster than internet broadband prices.

With the all the hype on wireless technology, people are not stopping to think about the affects cell phones can have on the body, especially on your brain waves. If you’re slowing down lately at work or at school, It could be result of you using your cell phone too much.

Check out details of new research in September’s International Journal of Neuroscience. It speaks for itself, Cell phone do have advert affects on the human brain waves.

Not necessarily … if you agree that a higher focus on details makes up for slower work. Well! This trade-off still sounds a bit scary if you after a sometime reduce mental speed. Do you agree?

Studies show that long term mobile phone affects that slow human brain waves. The question left on every researcher and cellphone consumers mind…Does a slower brain wave help or hurt a person’s mental and physical health?

Could the trade-off of deeper focus benefit people more than loss of speed? I’m curious to hear your comments.
