The article is short so I'll post it all.

"LONDON (Reuters) - Mobile phones are killing off ghosts, an expert who has spent years researching the occult has said.

Tony Cornell, of the Society for Psychical Research, told the Sunday Express newspaper that reports of ghost sightings had started to decline when mobile phones were introduced 15 years ago.

"Ghost sightings have remained consistent for centuries. Until three years ago we'd receive reports of two new ghosts every week," said Cornell, of Cambridge in Eastern England.

"But with the introduction of mobile phones 15 years ago, ghost sightings began to decline to the point where now we are receiving none."

According to the paper, haunted tourist attractions in Britain could be under threat if the number of cellphones continues to grow from the present figure of 39 million

Apparently paranormal events, which some scientists put down to unusual electrical activity, could be drowned out by the electronic noise produced by phone calls and text messages. "

Can you scare me now?.. Good!

I wonder if they go somewhere else where there are no cell phones.

But then they wouldn't be able to haunt places?

Interesting story though, indicates a link between radio frequencies, magnetic waves and paranormal activity.

Makes sense to me.

Wonder if it harms the ghost, or cancels out their signal, anyone have any ideas?

could do so if they have some kind of radio freuquency like ive heard when people go through the bermuda triangle major radio freuquency troubles could be the same way mobile phones affect ghosts

Seems like he has holes in his theory. My ghosts have not been scared off by my cellphone. In fact, after I got the phone, activity in my home was the same if not more present.

That's a giant leap, but who really knows? I've read of some investigators using infrared video, noticed that ghosts seemed to scatter when other investigators were taking pictures with their flashes on. Is it possible that the flash 'hurts' them, so to speak? We can't even acknowledge that ghosts exist, so I'm sure this type of research won't take place anytime soon.

I don't think the ghosties would be affected by Verizon cell phones since they hardly work half the time anyway.

This isn't JUST mobile phones, it's everything in this dumbass society. Ghost can only manifest in ballanced enironment. With polution and other # everythwere no wonder the run

People are too busy talking on their cell phones to even notice any ghosts presant.
