Are mobile phones capable of ‘nuking’ your ears?

Useful info: WHO states that to date, no harmful health effects have been established from mobile phone usage.

PETALING JAYA: Some people may feel earache when using their mobile phones, but such cases are uncommon, says physician Dr Mohammad Shazli Abdul Rahman.

“Mobile phones emit radio, electromagnetic and thermal waves. Research published in journals indicate that radio and electromagnetic waves can trigger responses from the nerves in the ears, face and scalp during use, causing dysesthesia, an unpleasant nerve pain,” said Dr Mohammad Shazli.
