Cell Phones and Health Danger
Since the very first cell phone production, people have been suspecting that these devices, which we use on a regular basis, are potentially harmful to our health. Namely, people fear that the electromagnetic radiation from cell phones is capable of causing brain tumors, cancers and many other health issues.
Recently, with the enormous growth of the cell phone industry during the last 5 years, people are becoming more and more aware of the dangers of the kind of life we are living. Therefore, just as it is the case with alcoholic beverages and cigarettes, many people desire for warning labels to be placed on every mobile phone produced, indicating that this device is potentially dangerous for your health and that it may cause many different illnesses.
Until this happens, however, let us look further into the matter and try to shed some light on this ever-dwelling question of whether cell phones can truly kill you in the long run or not.
Lethal or Plain Useful?
Numerous researches have been conducted on the subject of the safety of cell phones. However, some quite discouraging results have reached the surface. Namely, if you use cell phones actively for more than 10 years, you have increased chances of suffering from brain tumors.
Quite naturally, the cell phone industry begs to differ. Moreover, many cell phone companies have carried out researches which all have shown that there are no health dangers related to cell phone usage in the long run. In some tests, even 400,000 different people were participating.
Another dispute is caused by the question of the frequency on which these devices work. Namely, some claim that this sound, when played closely to our ears during our cell phone usage, can be dangerous and harmful. Again, the cell phone industry says that these frequencies are carefully controlled and regulated during production guaranteeing the safety of all users. However, doctors and health experts claim how these things should not be standardized by engineers, but rather by medically experienced staff, which is rarely the case.
Finally, we are left to be cautious,
since the battle still rages on and there are no definite results to confirm the truth yet.
Keep it safe, send text messages instead of calling whenever you can. Also, when you do make phone
calls, use headphones and handsfree items, keeping yourself protected from
radiation caused by the device.
