Don't blame the cellphone! It's in your head!

It's another study that states that electro-magnetic waves sent by cellphones and cellphones' signal towers are not responsible for symptoms such as anxiety, nauseas and tiredness.

The study (done by the Environmental Health Perspectives) tested the reaction of people when they "thought the signal was on". Oddly enough, most people said they were feeling the symptoms exactly when no electro-magnetic waves were in fact being emitted in range.

The researchers stated that most of these symptoms are due to psychological causes and to the old saying that "if we believe that something will hurt us, then it certainly will".

The best explanation for these kind of symptoms is still the psychological state that people are when usually associated with stress.
