Simulated images of the brain

The study by the National Polytechnic of Metsovo showed that radiation levels absorbed by sensitive brain tissue during cell phone use may reach or even overshoot legal safety limits. This is especially dangerous for children, as the images above illustrate. (The image on the left is a child’s brain, and on the right, an adult’s.) The darker shade illustrates that the brain has become more irritated by the radiation exposure and these areas are more extensive in the child’s brain.
