Thats the ghost story from Tony Cornell, paranormal researcher and Vice Chairman of the Society of Physical Research (SPR), who says ghostly occurrences have declined greatly in the last eight years, and cell phones are to blame.
According to Cornell, cell phones emit a high volume of radiation because of their high frequency, which is forcing spirits to head into the light.
Cornell came to this conclusion after seeing the number of cases the SPR handled drop from 60 a year to maybe one.
He laments, Everything seems to have gone dead. There are absolutely no ghosts at all. Weve been going to these houses that are believed to be haunted, but were not finding anything.
Cornell is urging scientists to do research on the topic in the hopes that it will make things go bump in the night again.
