Electromagnetic field exposure and health problems among college students

" Some students have been living close to base stations and high voltage lines (30% and 18.7%, respectively). Students had an internet network (82.3%). Mobile phone and computer usage for more than 5 years were 83% and 66%, respectively. 73.1% had electrical/electronic devices in the bedroom. Exposure time to electrical/electronic systems in 44.7% of students was more than 5 hours per day. Some health problems mentioned were fatigue (75.2%), muscle pain (39%), difficulty in concentration (51.7%), stress (36.4%), eye discomfort (28.5%), light sensitivity (21.3%), and sleep disorder (%40). Chi-square analysis showed a significant relationship between daily electrical/electronic device exposure time and headache frequency, concentration difficulties, fatigue, muscle pain (P<0.01, P<0.05, P<0.001, P<0.01, respectively). The presence of electronic devices in the bedroom showed a statistically significant relationship with a sleep disorder, concentration difficulties, stress, fatigue, dizziness, and tinnitus (P<0.01, P<0.01, P<0.001, P<0.001, P<0.05, and P<0.001, respectively)." {Credits 1}
