Pregnancy and Cell Phones

This seems ridiculous to me, but if that's what the studies are showing, I guess we should take note and stay off our cell phones while pregnant. I think kids who are typically developing have enough behavioral problems of their own. I wouldn't want to make things worse!

FROM NBC: Pregnant women who regularly use their cell phone may be increasing the chance their child will have behavioral problems. A study of 28 thousand Danish seven year olds finds those who were exposed to cell phones before and after birth were fifty percent more likely to have behavioral problems.

This finding persisted even when researchers took factors like mother's age, prenatal alcohol exposure, and the baby's birth weight into account.
An earlier study of thirteen thousand children had similar results. Experts say it is too early to say cell phones *cause* behavioral problems - they are planning more studies.
