Abstract:

Due to increase in telecommunication facilities, Ujjain, simple and holy city is crowded by number of Mobile Base Stations. Also mobile phone users are also increasing day by day due to its excessive use and dependence. The aim of the present study is to investigate the association of use of mobile phones and radio frequency exposure to base stations with fatigue, headache, dizziness, tension and sleep disturbance etc. in adolescents and adults population of Ujjain and to provide an outcome which can deal with health and social awareness. A survey was conducted among 100 teenager students of age 14-19 years and 100 middle aged people aged 30-45 years of few schools and offices of Ujjain, India. A questionnaire was developed and the primary data in the form of Yes / No was collected and studied. The study showed increased association of fatigue, sleep disturbance, dizziness, loss of mental attention, memory loss, headache, earache, tachycardia, poor eye sight and anxiety while diarrhea and constipation were associated with less frequency as per the interview of the subjects. Also environmental effects were associated in the form of bacterial burden and effect on plant population responsible for ecological imbalance. People living or stay over a long time near mobile based station to ascertain level radiation and make effort to screen the radiation if perceived danger, also individual should reduce their level of making or receiving call with their mobile to avoid some of the potential hazard mentioned conversation with text messages could be a better option. In general, it’s our duty to keep the mobile phones as far as possible from our body during our daily life.
