Yes, it’s true we finally got a proof that Cell Phone Radiation has an influence on our health. This is however not new there were studies and counter-studies to proof or deny it but the recent study seems really shocking, it not only has a negative effect on your overall health it also increases the risk to get brain cancer by up to 40% when you use your smartphone only half of an our per day.
Cell Phones and Cancer: What are the Risks?
Cell phones emit a form of electromagnetic field called radio frequency (RF) radiation. We have long been led to believe that this radiation is harmless because of the low power levels involved, and because it’s non-ionizing. Unfortunately, this cell phone radiation has the ability to penetrate our bodies and cause untold damage.
“The signal couples with those cells, although nobody really knows what the nature of that coupling is. Some effects of that reaction can be things like movement of calcium across membranes, the production of free radicals or a change in the expression of genes in the cell.
Suddenly important proteins are being expressed at times and places and in amounts that they shouldn’t be, and that has a dramatic effect on the function of the cells. And some of these changes are consistent with what’s seen when cells undergo conversion from normal to malignant.”
Can Cell Phones Cause Breast Cancer and Other Cancers?
There have been multiple studies into whether or not cell phones cause cancer. In addition to brain cancer, these studies link cell phone radiation exposure to many other types of cancer, including:
- Cancer of the Pituitary Gland
- Thyroid Cancer
- Melanoma Risk
- Stem Cell Cancer
- Parotid Malignant Tumors
- Lymph Node Cancer
- Multifocal Breast Cancer
- Eye Cancer
Cell Phone Radiation Protection Tips
The most effective method of protection from cell phone radiation is complete avoidance. If you’re willing to accept that your cell phone can cause cancer, but aren’t ready to give it up… your best bet is to incorporate these precautionary steps into your daily routine:
- Limit cell phone calls to those that are absolutely necessary.
- Avoid making or receiving calls in places with bad reception.
- Put your phone on airplane mode when you are not using its wireless functions.
- Avoid carrying your cell phone in your pocket or anywhere on your body when it’s switched on.
- Use earphones, preferably an airtube headset, so you won’t have to put your cell phone close to your head. Note: Do NOT use a Bluetooth headset which also emits radiation.
- Do not take your cell phone into your bedroom at night. If you must, keep it in airplane mode and as far from your head as possible.
- Choose to text instead of calling whenever possible.
- If a long conversation is in place, opt to meet the person directly or call on a land line.
