Cancer Institute Warns of Cell Phone Risks
For the full article click on the link below
The head of a prominent cancer research institute has issued an unprecedented
warning to his faculty and staff: Limit cell phone use because of the possible risk of cancer.
The warning came from Dr. Ronald B. Herberman, director of the University of Pittsburgh
Cancer Institute. Herberman says his warning is based on early unpublished data. He argues
that people should take action now -- especially when it comes to children.
"Really at the heart of my concern is that we shouldn't wait for a definitive study to
come out, but err on the side of being safe rather than sorry later," Herberman said.
There are many simple precautions that you can take to reduce your exposure to
information-carrying radiowaves and the emitted from
your cell phone – both of which are hazardous to your health. Here are my best guidelines:
* Children Should Never Use Cell Phones: Barring a life-threatening emergency,
children should not use a cell phone, or a wireless device of any type. Children are far
more vulnerable to cell phone radiation than adults, because of their thinner skull bones.
* Reduce Your Cell Phone Use: Turn your cell phone off more often.
Reserve it for emergencies or important matters.
* Use A Land Line At Home And At Work: Although more and more people are
switching to using cell phones as their exclusive phone contact, it is a dangerous
trend and you can choose to opt out of the madness.
* Reduce or Eliminate Your Use of Other Wireless Devices: You would be wise to
cut down your use of these devices. Just as with cell phones, it is important to ask
yourself whether or not you really need to use them every single time. If you must
use a portable home phone, use the older kind that operates at 900 MHz.
They are no safer during calls, but at least they do not broadcast constantly even when no call is being made.
* Use Your Cell Phone Only Where Reception Is Good: The weaker the reception,
the more power your phone must use to transmit, and the more power it uses,
the more radiation it emits, and the deeper the dangerous radio waves penetrate into
your body. Ideally, you should only use your phone with full bars and good reception.
* Turn Your Cell Phone Off When Not In Use: As long as your cell phone is on,
it emits radiation intermittently, even when you are not actually making a call.
* Keep Your Cell Phone Away From Your Body When It Is On: The most
dangerous place to be, in terms of radiation exposure, is within about six inches
of the emitting antenna. You do not want any part of your body within that area.
* Use Safer Headset Technology: Wired headsets will certainly allow you to
keep the cell phone farther away from your body. However, if a wired headset
is not well-shielded -- and most of them are not -- the wire itself acts as an antenna
attracting ambient information carrying radio waves and transmitting radiation directly
to your brain. Make sure that the wire used to transmit the signal to your ear is shielded.
The best kind of headset to use is a combination shielded wire and air-tube headset.
These operate like a stethoscope, transmitting the information to your head as an actual
sound wave; although there are wires that still must be shielded, there is no wire that goes all the way up to your head.
I hope you enjoyed this research.
