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

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
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
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

Some of the Cell Phone
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
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
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
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
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.
