All cell phones, once powered on, emit certain amounts of electromagnetic radiation in the microwave radio frequency range. During the past 15 years or so, when mobile phone use has become phenomenally prevalent worldwide, the effects of this radiation on human health has come under intense study and has been the subject of numerous heated debates. These past years, we’ve seen report after report that associated prolonged mobile phone use and exposure to differing amounts of cellular phone radiation to brain tumors, cancer, stress, headaches, cognitive problems, and sleep disorders.
Most of these studies, however, have either been disputed by other scientists or deemed as biased by other groups who also produced evidence to the contrary. As such, there’s no definitive, undisputed conclusion, as of yet, about cell phone dangers. Scientists warn, correctly, that there’s so much that we don’t know about the effects of cellular phone radiation, and that the full impact may actually be known years from now when it is too late to reverse any damage.
The latency between exposure and brain cancer could be 20 or 30 years, observes Professor Devra Davis, at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute. By using cellular devices without any clear understanding of the dangers, we are basically treating ourselves like lab rats in an experiment without any controls
To mitigate potential cell phone dangers, experts recommend certain safe practices in using wireless devices. Some of the most common recommendations are: Keep your mobile phone away from your body, text more and talk less, use headset or speakerphone function, use your land line, turn off your mobile phone while charging, keep cell phones away from children, and purchase or use phones that have been certified or tested to emit the least amount of radiation.
It is with the intention of educating the public about the dangers of mobile phone radiation that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has conducted an exhaustive study, covering over a thousand cell phone models in the market, detailing the amount of radiation that each mobile phone emits. The EWG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in 1993 by Ken Cook and Richard Wiles, that aims to “use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment.”
Here are the 10 least radiation-emitting cell phones, according to the EWG report:
1. Samsung Impression (SGH-a877) AT&T
2. Motorola RAZR V8 CellularONE
3. Samsung SGH-t229 T-Mobile
4. Samsung Rugby (SGH-a837) AT&T
5. Samsung Propel Pro (SGH-i627) AT&T
6. Samsung Gravity (SGH-t459) CellularONE, T-Mobile
7. T-Mobile Sidekick T-Mobile
8. LG Xenon (GR500) AT&T
9. Motorola Karma QA1 AT&T
10.Sanyo Katana II Kajeet

As pointed out by the CTIA, the wireless industry’s lobbying group, there is yet no conclusive and fully substantiated study about cell phone dangers. However, it is no secret that government agencies in some countries have started to post warnings and direct cell phone manufacturers to clearly indicate the amount of radiation that each model they sell to the public actually emits.
Until we’re finally able to bridge that gap in our knowledge on the dangers of cell phone radiation, we can only take precautionary measures to protect ourselves. One important way to protect our health, is by buying or purchasing mobile phone models that have the least amount of radiation.

Is Your Cell Phone Slowly Killing You?
By Ben Needles
For years now, people have been using cellphones, and thinking nothing of it. In fact, there is a plethora of data to back up the fact that these phones emit very low levels of electromagnetic radiation; far less than an x-ray or MRI, and are therefore safe. Yet, what about the long-term effects of this radiation? It is a known fact that sun is good for you – you get vitamin D from exposure to it, but too much will give you a sunburn. Plus, over the years, the cumulative effects of too much sun can lead to skin cancer.
So, what about cellphones? Okay, it is true that they emit very little radiation, but there is the issue of the cumulative effect. There is also a great deal of data to support the contention that these cumulative effects can be quite detrimental to peoples health. In recent years, we have seen a rise in various types of cancers – brain, ear and eye, and other ailments related to the brain: migraines, epilepsy and impotency, to name only a few.
As if that is not bad enough, there is the issue of childrens health. It is well known that children are very susceptible to all manner of health problems. As their small bodies are growing and consuming vast amounts of nutrients, they can also consume things that are not good for them; and their cells and organs can be damaged by many things. This is where cellphone radiation can cause a great deal of trouble.
It is for this reason that you should follow some basic precautions. First off, try to avoid cooking food for infants and children in a microwave oven. It may be easier to warm a babys bottle in a microwave, but it is not in the childs best interest. Next, do not leave your cellphone lying around where your children can get hold of it, and do not let them talk on it too much. What is really best; turn your cellphone off when you do not need it. Then there is where you keep your cellphone. Try to avoid carrying it on your person. If it is near your heart, that can lead to trouble. Down at your waist, there is ovarian or testicular cancer to be considered. And, if you are a woman, and you are pregnant, be sure to keep the phone away from your belly!
By following a few simple precautions, you can greatly reduce your chances of ill health as a result of cellphone radiation. When you consider some of the medical problems that can result from too much exposure, you will see that these steps are in your best long-term interest.
