New research has concluded that women who use mobile phones when pregnant are more likely to give birth to children with behavioural problems.
A study of more than 13,000 children by the universities of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Aarhus, Denmark found that using the handsets just two or three times a day was enough to raise the risk of their babies developing hyperactivity and difficulties with conduct, emotions and relationships by the time they reached school age.
The study involved scientists questioning the mothers of 13,159 children born in Denmark in the late 1990s about their phone use in pregnancy, and their children's use of them and behaviour up to the age of seven.
