Alabama City, Alabama (PressExposure) April 12, 2008 -- Radiations from Mobile Phone May Affect Endothelial Cells That Line Blood Vessels and It May Results in Acne Breakouts
A study was conducted by Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK) to find out the effects of mobile phone radiation on human skin. In this study a small portion of forearm of 10 volunteers was exposed to mobile GSM signals or radiations for one hour.
After that, the biopsies of those skin portions were collected and examined. During the analysis, it was found that 8 types of proteins has been affected by these radiations. Some other studies also revealed that mobile radiations affect endothelial cells. Endothelial cells form lining of blood vessels including arteries to tiny capillaries. The main function of the endothelial cells is to reduce the friction of blood during its flow in the vessels.
There are a numerous causes of acne breakouts including lack of nutrients and inefficient blood flow towards hair follicles that results in decreased oxygen supply. Therefore, as mobile radiations affect endothelial cells, it causes the blood flow to decrease and cause stiffness in tiny blood capillaries that inhibit efficient supply of oxygen and nutrients towards hair follicles.
Although mobile radiations affect proteins and endothelial cells, we are unable to confirm its effects on health and does it really cause acne or any other skin disorder. More extensive studies are still needed to learn more about health risks.
