Weaker Bones and Mobile Phone Use Linked in Study

A small study out of Argentina suggests that mobile phone users might be at heightened risk for a weakening of bone in the hip area. Researchers measured bone mineral content and bone mineral density in the left and right hips of 24 men who carried their mobile phone on their right hip for at least one year, and 24 men who did not use mobile phones. The men who carried mobile phones on their right hip had lower mineral content in the area near the top of the thigh bone.
