Does powerful electronic device that emits electromagnetic frequencies have any effect on our electromagnet brain is a question we all need to know the answer .
We all love our phones and we would willingly use them (at least I will ) even if I see an evidence that it caused cancer in 25 percent of the population.
There are only 3 in 4 chance of not getting cancer right ?
Here are the latest facts…
Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority in Finland – the home of mobile phone giant Nokia –announced that one hour of mobile radiation triggered potentially harmful changes .
The radiation made the cells in blood vessel walls shrink and potentially harmful substances in the blood to ‘leak’ into the brain.
Repeated exposure,makes the blood-brain barrier more permeable and will increase brain damage.
‘Repeated occurrences of these events on a daily basis, over a long period of time, could become a health hazard due to possible accumulation of brain tissue damage.’
After years California Department of Public Health finally released a draft document outlining concerns about cell phone radiation like multiple cancers and infertility.
Joel Moskowitz of U.C. Berkeley’s School of Public Health said :
“We have evidence of brain tumors and other head and neck tumors. We also have evidence of sperm damage in males, infertility in females,” .He sued the state in 2016 under the California Public Records Act to obtain the information.
Department of Public Health ultimately chose not to publish the document — both pages have since been emblazoned with “Draft and Not for Public Release” — its import to cellphone users .
San Francisco affiliate ABC7 :
“Moskowitz says there’s been a lot of pressure from the wireless industry to keep any negative report on cellphones hidden from the public.They’ve done a very good job at it, essentially following the same playbook that the tobacco industry used.”
Ellie Marks of the California Brain Tumor Association for ABC7:
“People need to know, people are unaware that cell phones, as they are used now, are not safe.”
Environmental Working Group (EWG) eight years ago released set of guidelines for safer cell phone operation, with studies like :
“World Health Organization that linked cell phone radiation to brain cancer, and other studies that linked cell phone radiation to diminished sperm count and sperm damage.”
In 2011, the World Health Organization declared cell phone radiation a possible carcinogen:
“Animal studies support the findings in people. A multi-year study from the U.S. National Toxicology Program found that male rats exposed to radio-frequency radiation from before birth through two years of age had a greater chance of being diagnosed with a brain cancer called malignant glioma, as well as developing a tumor found in the heart. The radiation levels to which the rats were exposed included levels that current cell phones are allowed to emit.”
CDPH’s Division of Environmental and Occupational Disease Control :
“Cell phones, like other electronic devices, emit a kind of energy called radiofrequency EMFs (electromagnetic fields). Health officials are concerned about possible health effects from cell phone EMFs because some recent studies suggest that long-term cell phone use may increase the risk of brain cancer and other health problems…
Several studies have found that people with certain kinds of brain cancer were more likely to have used cell phones for ten years or more. Most of the cancers were on the same side of the head that people usually held their phones. Although the chance of developing brain cancer is very small, these studies suggest that regular cell phone use increases the risk of developing some kinds of brain cancer. Some studies have also linked exposure to EMFs from cell phones to fertility problems. As more studies are done, and we learn about possible risks for cancer and other health problems linked to cell phone use, the recommendations on this fact sheet may change.”
More research and study must be made but cautioned sufficient evidence had been found in previous studies to make us more careful.
Several simple guidelines will help prevent the development of brain and other cancers,like holding the phone at a distance, switching to speakerphone, or using headphones for conversations.
