The emergence of cellular phones in our modern lives has become a prevailing necessity. Nowadays, vast majority of the world population are hooked with this tiny yet powerful gadget. From a simple device that served only as a call and text now becomes a communication tool package that knows no limits. Mobile or cellular phones have thus become indispensable.
But little did we know of the dangers it poses to our health. Serious concern is escalating over the years on the mushrooming use of the handy mobile cellular telephone, or cell-phone. These phones are arguably the most radioactive appliance humans have yet invented. It is well known that high levels of RF (Radio Frequency) can produce biological damage through heating effects, same as how our microwave oven works.
The effect of this radio frequency (RF) is very alarming to us humans. As high frequency radio radiation penetrates the body, the exposed molecules move about and collide with one another causing friction and heat. If the radiation is powerful enough, the tissue or skin will be heated or burned. Synonymous to this is the EMF (electromagnetic frequency) radiation describes the continually flowing electrons that form invisible fields of energy all around us. EMF radiation from power lines, appliances, radars, TVs, phones, computers, microwaves, etc. are already considered by many to be potentially hazardous to both mental and physical health. Those who live or work within an electromagnetic field is at risk.
Studies have shown that cell phones have been linked with a wide range of health problems including headaches, earaches, eye and vision problems, memory loss, nausea, fatigue, brain tumors, or even DNA alteration or damage and even changes in the brain’s electrical activity. Researches particularly the effects among children and pregnant mothers are alarming.
What about Wi-Fi computer signals? Can they interfere with sleep? The scientific jury is still out, but consider this: Kevin Koym, who owns a consulting company and a software engineering firm in Austin, Tex., says of his struggles with insomnia: “I never had sleep problems until I started using Wi-Fi So now I am careful to shut off my computer at home in the evening.”
For years, much have been rake over and publicized of the many lawsuits filed against cell phone companies. Countries like US, Great Britain, Austria, Germany, Sweden etc. have undertaken measures to delve into the issue and made strong regulations for the telecommunication industry. The concern has been strong and on-going. The extent of these safety issues lies on the fact that needs not be taken for granted.

The Dangers of Cell Phone Use and Cell Phone Radiation
By Ben Needles
The electromagnetic field (EMF) has been a natural part of the earth ever since the beginning of the universe and extends throughout all of space. It is a fundamental form of nature. The most familiar form of the electromagnetic field, to us, is found in sunlight. This electromagnetic field is actually the interaction of both an electric field, which is composed of stationary charges, and the magnetic field which consists of wave like currents.
What is most interesting about the electromagnetic field is that, not only does it exist as a natural phenomenon around us, but it is also produced by a large number of the technological advances we have made and that we now tend to take for granted. For example, the microwave oven that most of us heat food or warm the babys bottle in produces EMFs. Even your computer screen and your cell phone produce EMFs. Actually, there are many electrical devices in and around your home that produce EMFs. Electrical substations and power lines are other examples of EMF producers outside your home.
Because the amount of EMF exposure has increased, as a result of technological advancement, scientific studies indicate that too much exposure can have a negative impact on human health, specifically increasing the cancer susceptibility rate. Moreover, some studies seem to indicate that children living in close proximity to overhead power lines, in combination with their still developing immune system, are more likely to develop leukemia than children who dont live near these power sources.
Additionally, due to the increase of EMF exposure there has also been a noted increase in miscarriages, birth defects, breast cancer, brain cancers, and Alzheimers disease, to note a few more of the potential hazards of EMF. EMFs have also been associated with an increase of chronic fatigue, depression, headaches, allergies and other environmental disease.
Heres how EMFs work on the human body. EMFs reduce the pineal glands ability to produce melatonin, which is a hormone that has been medically proven to control circadian rhythms and mood. EMFs also inhibit the immune systems ability to protect the body from the formation of pre-cancerous cells. When the bodys immune system is compromised the body is more susceptible to contracting any number of antigens that it cant naturally fight off.
Cell phones are also on the list of EMF producing devices. According to Australian Health Research Institute nearly one third of the worlds population is susceptible to some form of ear, eye, or brain cancer, not to mention that EMFs produced by cell phones also have the potential of causing other body disorders, such as epilepsy, heart problems, migraines, and more. EMFs are also produced by the transfer towers that assist in the signal transmission from cell phone to cell phone.
Because of the EMF threat to your health there are some things to keep in mind. First, reduce the amount of the use of your cell phone. If you are at home and have a land line, use the land line not the cell phone. Also, turn off the cell phone when you are not using it. When out and about keep your cell phone in a place other than a pocket over or near your heart. In addition, you should avoid living or working near transmission masts.
