Anyone who lives next to a cell phone mast or has their cell phone on their ears all day will certainly have asked themselves whether cell phone radiation is actually dangerous. The conclusion of a study by the World Health Organization (WHO) is sober: Yes, cell phone radiation can be dangerous. However, only time will tell more details.
Cell phone radiation – harmful or not Anyone who lives next to a cell phone mast, or has their cell phone on their ear all day, will certainly have asked themselves at one point whether cell phone radiation is actually dangerous. The conclusion of a study by the World Health Organization (WHO) is sober: Yes, cell phone radiation can be dangerous. However, only time will tell more details.
Nothing works today without smartphones. The small devices are always with you. Either in a pocket or directly on your ear when you are on the phone. Only a few users worry about whether the associated radiation poses a health risk. According to the WHO, this question must be answered with a clear “yes”.
How dangerous is cell phone radiation?
As part of a WHO study, researchers evaluated numerous other research results relating to the risks and health hazards of cell phone radiation. The researchers came to the conclusion that cell phone radiation can be carcinogenic. The emphasis is on the last two words “can be”.
They found out that there was an increased tumor formation. However, it was not possible to verify whether there is a clear causal connection between intensive cell phone use and cancer. For this purpose, long-term studies that take a few years to complete must be used.
The consequence: In principle, you can see a health risk from cell phone radiation, but you are not sure whether it is actually cell phone radiation. It is only noticeable that intensive cell phone users get certain tumors in the brain more often. How exactly cell phone radiation could be responsible for this is also completely unclear.
Should I avoid the cell phone now?
In an increasingly mobilized and always accessible world, it would be utopian to part with any cellular technology. Of course, you can and should take this step if you are concerned about possible cell phone radiation. Even if there is no clear evidence of a connection between certain brain tumors and cell phone radiation.
However, if this is not practicable for you, try at least to reduce cell phone use and overall contact a little. Below we have put together some tips on how you can achieve this goal:
Put the cell phone down in your hand more often. Constant cell phone calls increase blood pressure and thus have a negative impact on the stress system,
Avoid cell phone calls. The radiation is always greatest when the signal has to be built up for a conversation. It is better to reduce phone calls with the mobile phone to a minimum.
Turn off the cell phone. When you don’t really need it, just turn the juice off of the device. For example, do not leave the device switched on while you sleep on the bedside table.
Do not wear the phone too close to your body. Better to put it in a backpack or handbag.
Pay attention to the SAR value of a cell phone. This indicates the radiation emitted by a cell phone. The lower the value, the better for you.
