Is Your Cell Phone Slowly Killing You?

  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.

Cell Phone Dangers – Protecting Our Homes From Cell Phone Radiation

By Mike Arms

  There are over 4 billion cell phone users throughout the world today – that’s about 4 people out of every 6 living on this planet and owning a cell phone, subscribed to a cellular phone plan, or living with someone who owns a mobile phone. The ubiquity of wireless phones brings to the fore certain issues related to this device, like cell phone dangers to human health.

All mobile phones, when turned on, emit electromagnetic radiation in the microwave radio frequency range. It is this cell phone radiation, as it is absorbed by human tissue (most commonly in the head, as you place the phone next to your ear when you talk) that has come under intense scrutiny this past decade. Several epidemiological and experimental studies have associated prolonged cell phone use to sleeping disorder, cognitive problems, headaches, stress, brain tumors, and cancer.

Experiment Without Controls

On the other hand, studies with opposing results and observations have also been published. CTIA, the wireless industry’s lobbying association pointed out to studies or statements from the World Health Organization (WHO), the American Cancer Society, and the FDA downplaying potential cell phone dangers, “all have concurred that wireless devices are not a public health risk.”

But, as Professor Devra Davis, at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute explains, “the latency between exposure and brain cancer could be 20 or 30 years” and by using cellular devices without any clear understanding of cell phone dangers, “we are basically treating ourselves like lab rats in an experiment without any controls”

The verdict is still out, obviously, but are you willing to take the risk?

Protect Yourself

Today, at the Consumer Electronics Show 2010 in Las Vegas, a company called Pong Research has announced the availability of a product called Pong BlackBerry Curve Case which claims to reduce users’ exposure to mobile phone radiation by 60%. Until this product is introduced by other manufacturers to cover other brands and will be marketed widely, however, we all just have to take certain precautionary measures to protect ourselves from suspected cell phone dangers:

Keep your cell phone away from your body. The greatest exposure to cellular phone radiation is when it is 6 inches or less from any body part.

Text more, talk less. Take only the most important calls or make the least amount of calls on your phone and transmit messages through SMS.

Use headset or speakerphone function. wireless phone radiation is emitted directly from a unit’s built-in antenna. Using a headset ensures that the actual cell phone is located away from your head, which can easily absorb EMF radiation.

Use your land line. It’s definitely safer to talk on the land line than on a mobile phone, because this lessens your exposure to radiation.

Turn off your cell phone while charging. Not only will you charge your phone faster, it will also cut down on radiation emission from your cell to which everyone in your house or office is exposed to.

Purchase or use phones that have been certified or tested to emit the least amount of radiation. The Environmental Working Group has prepared an exhaustive list covering over 1,000 phones currently in the market, and they have come up with a list of the 10 best phones (with least radiation output) to use.

Keep cellular phones away from children. Children’s skulls are thinner and their brains are less dense than adult brains, radio frequency signals can penetrate deeper into a child’s brain than in an adult’s.

Theres a greater concern for children because the life-time exposure will be much higher, says Jane Houlihan of the Environmental Working Group. In the United States, as many as seven in ten children between the ages of 12 and 17 own a mobile phone, and half use them daily, according to the New York Times.

At the moment, there is no conclusive, peer-reviewed evidence that points to cell phone dangers from radiation exposure. The science is evolving on this subject, but if we must err, it should be on the side of caution. When it comes to our health and those of our children, nothing should be left to chance, let’s always protect ourselves.
