Cell Phone Radiation – Facts About Its Harmful Effects
The cell phone industry would want us to believe that there are no harmful effects of cell phone radiation; However, the facts tell us otherwise. There are more than 200 million cell phone users in America and this number is increasing by the day. This means that there are millions of cell phone users who are unaware of the danger of using this device.
Wireless Technology Research
The cell phone industry is never going to admit that there are serious health hazards related to cell phone radiation. In fact, when the industry set up a Wireless Technology Research in 1993, a non-profit organization, to prove to the public that cell phones are safe, the research boomeranged on them, so to speak.
The Study Found
The research team was headed by Dr. George Carlo. More than 200 doctors and researchers were involved in the WTR project. In total, more than 50 studies were conducted. Based on the studies, Dr Carlo and the scientists concluded that cell phone radiation was harmful to the user. The studies found that
- Radiation from the cell phone can cause DNA damage and damage the DNA repair process.
- The cell phones interfered with cardiac pacemakers.
- The radiation from the cell phone increases the risk of brain dysfunction, tumors, cancer, autism, attention deficit disorder and neurodegenerative disease.
- In children, the mobile phone radiation causes behavioral and psychological problems.
More Findings Against Cell Phones
More recently, a study conducted by Dariusz Leszczynski at the Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, Helsinki, concluded that cell phone radiation did affect cells in living humans. The study found that there is a strong possibility that mobile phone radiation changes the expression of some proteins in living cells in human beings. According to Leszczynski, the study has proven that our body does recognize the low-level of radiation emitted by cell phones and hence reacts to it.
More and more studies have shown that there is a very convincing link between non-ionizing radiation from the cell phone to various diseases like cancer, brain tumors, Alzheimer, Parkinson, fatigue and headache.
We Need To Ask Ourselves
Many of us would not like to believe these studies and their findings. However, if we sit down and think clearly, we will realize that there are indeed too many questions that are unanswered. For example, is it not surprising that in the last decade there has been a dramatic rise in brain cancer? According to epidemic curve projections, there would be 400,000 to 500,000 new cases of brain and eye cancer worldwide, every year.
Why are we witnessing such a significant rise in diseases like, Alzheimer, Parkinson, autism and attention deficit disorders? Some experts believe that electropollution from technology has something to do with it. And that the information-carrying radio frequencies from cell phone communications play a big part.
Although the cell phone industry goes to great lengths to claim that cell phones are absolutely safe, their actions speak otherwise. Think about it – why do many cell phone providers have their customers sign a contract stating that they would not sue the cell phone maker or participate in a Class Action Lawsuit. If the phones are so safe, why do they have this clause in their contracts? It appears that they are trying to cover their behinds, just in case.
The fact is that several studies have already shown that cell phone radiation has effects considered harmful to the user, and the customers need to know of this so that they can take proper precautions.
