Cell phones' electromagnetic radiation is said to cause brain cancer. Is it true? People are concerned about the fact that high levels of microwave radiation pose harmful hidden dangers and realize they demand protection that will ensure their safety and help them keep in a healthy and good condition. Although there are many shields available on the market the don't protect them against radiation from towers, antenna or masts. So what can we do to prevent ourselves from emission that kills our brain cells?
Mobile phones radiation
Mobile phones are used worldwide these days, the invention of pocket sized mobile phones startled the implementation of mobile phones into our daily lives. As far as I'm concerned, there are people who have a kind of emotional attitude to their mobiles, they would rather die than not use mobile at all. To make things worse, there are scant numbers of people who can imagine life without mobile phones and being in touch with their family or friends 24/7. Since mobile phones depend greatly on radiation there is a concern if they have any harmful effect on people's health. The industry tries to con the public and make them believe in lack of any negative effect of mobile phone industry as it brings billions of dollars every year.
So far, numerous studies and tests have been conducted to check whether mobiles are harmful or not. The controversy and debates over the effects of usage mobile phones and their possibility to cause brain tumors are of special interest of scientists, communication workers and ordinary people. The reason for such an interest is that cell phones belong to the group of products that emit electromagnetic radiation e.g microwave oven, electric clocks, computers or other appliances. This is non ionizing radiation which is claimed not to cause any damages to the cells. Ionizing radiation e.g. x-rays damages DNA of the cells, results in mutations and birth defects.
According to some researchers using a mobile phone has no direct effect on getting malignant brain tumors. The harmful effect of mobile phone is achieved through their thermal effect. This type of radiation causes dielectric heating which heats up living tissue - your one part of the head will be warm. This could be called microwave radiation - according to The Journal of Cellular Biochemistry this radiation interferes with DNA and destroys its repair mechanisms. Apart from that microwave radiation make cells age rapidly or cancerous cells grow quicker, as Italian scientists demonstrated.
Even tiny, minimal doses of radio frequency accumulate and lead to harmful effects and damage the brain cells. Although it is the antenna which is said to emit the biggest amount of radiation the mouthpiece and keypad also leak radiation, penetrates the brain, ear and eye tissues.
