Even if in 2015 the European Commission announced that cell phone radiation is not dangerous, the latest studies proved otherwise.
Recent research has shown that the constant contact between the cell phone and the parotid gland might lead to cancer. The parotid gland is a salivary gland situated near where people hold their mobile phones, close to the cheek.
According to Eve Plews of Full Spectrum Health, people should avoid non-ionizing radiation coming from phones by purchasing phones that have less radiation. Plus, the safest choice is to keep it away by using the speakers and advising teens to avoid sticking the phones in their bra.
Therefore, it would be best to stay away from the radiation as much as possible. For instance, we can do this by not putting the phone on the nightstand. According to John Coates, Founder of RF Safe, the bioassay released by the NTP proved that the non-ionizing radiation at cell phones levels might lead to cancer.
Plus, new studies showed that 3G and 4G technologies are riskier than 2G, so we are more vulnerable to the consequences of cell phone use. In addition to this, even cell phone manufacturers do not recommend users to hold the phone closely to their ears while speaking on the phone.
The types of diseases that are linked to malignant tumors are in the heart, known as schwannomas, and gliomas, in the brain. Scientists used lab rats to see the effects of the non-ionizing radiations on them. It turned out that after a high exposure, males developed tumors very fast but still without affecting their lifespan.
Nevertheless, many other scientists rejected this study’s results, underlining the fact that a tumor is still a tumor whether you live longer or not. Plus, it is a common fact that radiation could never be associated with something good. Even if people are oblivious to the risks, a high cell phone usage means a high exposure to non-ionizing radiations which are still linked to cancer.
Experts know that there is no lottery when we refer to health, so we should do our best to prevent cell phone radiation as much as possible instead of exposing ourselves without thinking of the possible consequences.
