Cell Phone Radiation Facts

The fact that the use of cell phones facilitates communication it becomes almost indispensable for most people. There is no doubt that cellular phones are now an integral part of modern telecommunications. It is estimated that more than 50% of the population in certain countries use mobile phones and the market is growing rapidly. According to WHO (the World Health Organization), at the end of 2009, there were an estimated 4.6 billion cell phone subscribers globally. 

 

In fact, isn’t it nice to be able to not only talk but also text while walking or doing other things? But all cell phones emit radiation that can cause serious health problems; although some are more dangerous than others - for more information see cell phone radiation levels by manufacturers. Keep reading this article for some serious cell phone radiation facts.  

    

It is important to mention that not only cell phones but also the cell phone towers of various service providers emit lot of radiation into the atmosphere. In fact, some researchers believe that even birds are victims of exposure to radio frequency energy from cell phone towers.  One critic   says “it is one of the most significant reasons behind the fast dwindling number of birds and the recent mass deaths of avians as the radiation from these service towers is causing more and more flight birds to develop cancer.” Read more about dangers of cell phone towers for more information. 


Suspicion about 
health risks associated with cell phone radiation has circulated for years, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has denied the facts, stating that scientific evidence does not indicate negative health outcomes from exposure to radio frequency energy from cell phones. But nowadays, with the avalanche of information and rumors about cell phone radiations and the resultant serious harmful effects on users and the environment in general, the truth can no longer be hidden. Cell phone users are showing concern over knowing more about cell phone radiation levels and ways to incorporate cell phone radiation protection measures for themselves and their surroundings. 

 

Olga Naidenko, a senior scientist of the EWG ( Environmental Working Group, a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group, declares concerning devastating effects of the cell phone signals, “We would like to be able to say that cell phones are safe," but we can't. The most recent science, while not conclusive, raises serious issues about the cancer risk of cell phone use that must be addressed through further research. In the meantime, consumers can take steps to reduce exposure." To learn more about serious facts of radiation from cell phones visit cell phone radiation health risks. 

 

Some of the Cell Phone Radiation Facts: 

  • Signals emitted by modulated cell phones have been scientifically proved to drain the surface of the brain of vital calcium, thereby, weakening the brain membrane and making the brain vulnerable to various undesirable biological conditions such as cancerous growths. 
  • The brain is where the damage starts but it is not the only part of the body that gets adversely affected by cell phone radiations. Damage to retina, joints, muscles, nerves, skin and various other tissues that can lead to brain damage. Too much use of cell phones also results in a decreased white blood cell count in the body, lowering the body's defense against diseases. 
  • The radiations that are emitted by cell phones have a much deeper effect upon our biology than just attacking and degenerating various organs. Exposure to these radiations, over a long period of time, eventually leads to degeneration of our DNA structure and robs the DNA of their ability to repair themselves. 
  • Mobile phone radiation can also lead to behavioral and psychological issues in children whose brains are still in the developmental stage. 
  • Long term or extensive exposure to cell phone radiations is also known to cause fertility issues. 
  • Although the rumor about cooking an egg by placing it between two activated cell phones may just be an urban legend, the modulated radio waves emitted by cell phones do have the ability to fry our brain cells. These modulated radio waves cause the neurons of the brain to leak, inducing unnecessary and harmful nerve impulses that can lead to sleep disturbances, loss of concentration, mental fogginess, migraine and stress headaches and seizures. 
  • The same mechanism that is mentioned in the preceding point causes dermal and cardiac membranes to leak, leading to various skin infections and serious heart conditions such as abnormal palpitation and cardiac arrhythmia. 
  • Compared to modulated radio waves, unmodulated radio waves are a lot safer, their only effect on the body upon long term exposure, being an increase in the body temperature. 
  • The modulated radiations of cell phones also lead to the leakage of hemoglobin from blood cells. Extensive exposure leads to a heightened vulnerability to asthma and various allergies due to accentuation of the production of histamines in mast cells. 
  • Cell phone radiation leads to various digestive and metabolic abnormalities and is an active agent in raising the harmful cholesterol levels in blood. 
  • These radiations also put a lot of pressure on our endocrine system, leading to abnormal function of the glands. 

What You Can Do? 

 

These days you can find cell phone radiation shields. All of them claim to be effective in neutralizing cell phone radiations and various other forms of electromagnetic radiations emanated by Wi-fi routers. Do your research to find one that really works to protect yourself. As long as you can, use land line phones for conversation. You can also text when it’s not necessary to have oral conversation. Cell phones must be used when needed; therefore, take as much precaution as you can to decrease their use.
