  Passage 1

  Questions I to 5 are based on the following passage:

  Spending 50 minutes with a cell phone close to your ear is enough to change brain cell activity in the part of the brain closest to the antenna(天线)But whether that causes any harm is not clear, scientists at the National Institute of Health said at a conference last month, adding that the study will not likely settle concerns of a link between cell phones and brain cancer.“What we showed is glucose(葡萄糖)metabolism(代谢)(a sign of brain activity)increases in the brain in people who were exposed to a cell phone in the area closest to the antenna"said DrNora Volkow of the NIHwhose study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association(76) The study was meant to examine how the brain reacts to electromagnetic fields caused by wireless phone signals

Volkow said she was surprised that the weak electromagnetic radiation(电磁辐射)from cell phones could affect brain activity, but she said the findings do not shed any light on whether cell phones cause cancer“This study does not in any way indicate thatWhat the study does is to show the human brain is sensitive to electromagnetic radiation from cell phone exposures.”Use of the devices has increased dramatically since they were introduced in the early l980swith about 5 billion cell phones now in use worldwide

  Some studies have linked cell phone exposure to an increased risk of brain cancersbut a large study by the World Health Organization did not offer a clear answer to thisVolkow’s team studied 47 people who had their brain examined while a cell phone was turned on for 50 minutes and another while the phone was turned off. While there was no complete change in brain metabolism, they found a 7 percent increase in brain metabolism in the region closest to the cell phone antenna when the phone was on(77)Experts said the results were interesting, but urged that they be understood with great care. “Although the biological significanceif any, of increased glucose metabolism from too much cell phone exposure is unknownthe results require further investigation,” Henry Lai of the University of Washington in the U.Sand DrLennart Hardell of University Hospital in Swedenwrote in an article in JAMA“Much has to be done to further investigate and understand these effects.”they wrote
