The amount of radiation emitted by mobile phones could pose serious health risks to users, according to a study released by a local scientist Monday. Kim Deok-won, a professor from Yonsei University’s college of medicine, said in the study that the extensive use of wireless handsets, using code-division multiple access (CDMA) technology, increased sweat in the hands of users. The reaction to mobile-phone radio waves were found to be more significant among younger people, the study said.

Kim’s research team conducted their experiments on 41 people, 20 of whom were under the age of 18. Twenty-three were male.

The study, published on the Internet version of the U.S. journal Bioelectromagnetics, marks the first time that the biological effects of radio waves produced by CDMA handsets were confirmed by solid data, according to Kim.

“It is the first time to find that the extensive use of CDMA mobile-phones could increase hand sweating,’’ said Kim, adding that the biological reaction to mobile-phone radio waves were more significant among the younger participants of the studies.
