But the reason it is able to do this was because the radiation broke down the blood brain barrier, which protects the brain from foreign substances that may injure it.

Hence it can also damage DNA, affect male fertility and change the brain`s metabolism.And that`s not all- researchers have also found mobile phone use could contribute to the development of depression, diabetes and heart irregularities.
