|Children born to women who frequently use a mobile phone while pregnant are more likely to develop behaviour problems, according to new research.
A team at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Public Health looked at 13,159 children whose mothers had taken part in a study early on in their pregnancy.
The mothers were asked to complete a questionnaire about their children's behaviour and health when they reached seven.
They found that children who had pre and postnatal mobile exposure were 80 per cent more likely to have problems with conduct, emotion, peers and hyperactivity.
