The United Nations’ health agency, the World Health Organization, now lists mobile phone use in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.
But no adverse health effects have been established, the agency explains.
The decision to list cell phones as a cancer hazard came after a team of 31 scientists from 14 countries examined peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety.
“The biggest problem we have is that we know most environmental factors take several decades of exposure before we really see the consequences,” said Dr. Keith Black, chairman of neurology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Numerous studies indicate prolonged cell phone use is hazardous. The European Environmental Agency has pushed for more studies. It says cell phones may be as big a public health risk as smoking, asbestos and leaded gasoline.
In 2009, WHO reached the same conclusion. A decade-long, $30 million study into cell phones found a link between long term use and brain tumors.
The WHO’s Interphone investigation’s results showed “a significantly increased risk” of some brain tumors “related to use of mobile phones for a period of ten years or more,” the Telegraph reported.

The study showed participants in the study who used a cell phones for 10 years or more had doubled the rate of brain glioma, a type of tumor. To date, there have been no long-term studies on the effects of cell phone usage among children.
In response to a number of studies revealing the dangers of cell phones, the industry now advises consumers to hold the devices away from their bodies.

What could be worst? One of our best means of communication produces cancer. What a price to pay.

If something is of great utility (usage, etc), it will surely have its own problems as well; cell phones are no exception. Asking a person never to use his cell phone will seem ridiculous in today’s world in spite the common buzz of the various cancers that might arise due to excessive usage of the mobile phones. With the cell phones penetration into every corner in life where this kind of connectivity was not even thought off during the wired days, the mobile phone is a part and parcel of life that is equivalent to your personal vehicle. The cell phones are a handy device in case of emergency that’s inevitable in the present scenario. However, I think, if using a Bluetooth or a earpiece that moves away the user’s head from the antenna can reduce the RF(Radio Frequency) electromagnetic waves, then it’s worth a practice to keep ourselves at bay from the carcinogenic effect.

The reality is that until very recently, the main sources of time-varying electromagnetic (EM) fields were animals themselves and fields generated by solar winds. Consequently, it is reasonable to assume that all evolution has happened under conditions of isotropic space, meaning that space is electromagnetically the same in all directions and biologically relevant molecules are free to rotate and translate in all directions. But in the presence of man-made EM fields, that assumption is no longer true and this has really profound implications. So, for example, polar molecules in a field rotate to align with the field and this has implications for things like receptor binding efficiency and intracellular signaling mechanisms which require rotational freedom to function properly.

We've known this information ever since we have had cell phones. But, it is such low of a risk that most humans don't really care. As you said, yes, hands-free alternatives are probably better - over time. But, as for myself, I'm not too worried. I usually text rather than speak.but thanks for the info anyway,it’s a help.thanks for sharing this.

I think this is kind of issue is nonsense. The WHO is mistaken. Cell phones do not produce enough radioactive energy to do any damage. And as far as I know, no study has ever shown any negative impact from cell phone use. If there were any danger of cancer, we’d have seen a huge spike in such cancers given the increased cell phone usage over the last two decades. There has been none. I can’t explain the WHO announcement, but will wait for more know legible people to comment. Right now, I think its garbage.

Quack products that are supposed to prevent cellphone-induced cancer. Loss of access to a highly useful and occasionally lifesaving or democratizing device. Public cell phone bans.

Mobile phones don't give you brain tumors. There is no mechanism by which they *could* give you brain tumors. It just simply cannot happen. Mobile phones do not make your brain heat up, except in as much as they get warm in use because they're drawing more power from the battery. Holding an insulated plastic box to your ear makes your brain heat up, because it insulates one side of your head. You'd be amazed how much heat your head radiates off. If you block that heat radiation, your head will warm up. This is how hats work. It's not exactly difficult, you know.

Obviously there is a small probability that cell phones cause cancer. However, there's no known mechanism for them to contribute to cancer and there's no good statistical evidence that they have anything to do with cancer.

Seduction Secrets Revealed said...

Some advocacy groups contend the study raised serious concerns because it showed a hint of a possible link between very heavy phone use and a rare but often deadly form of brain tumor. I know professional people are also doing their job to research more about this issue. This is not a joke and we're talking here our health. But we also can't deny the fact that cellphone is already part of people’s daily lives. Thanks for sharing this!

There seems to be a lot of "maybes" and "perhaps" and "a possiblity"s surrounding this idea of cellphones causing cancers. I don't know...I'd like to have some more concrete evidence linking cellphones to cancer, but...I also really don't want to get cancer, lol. I'll probably just stick to using the headset, instead of holding the thing to my ear, makes me feel better.
