Is it in fact dangerous to use your mobile phone or wireless devises?
Over the last 10-15 years numerous large scale studies (+500) have been completed to document the possible adverse health risks of mobile radiation. Overall, many of the studies indicate a connection between mobile radiation and adverse side effects.
Watch this clip from "60 Minutes" with brain surgeon and mobile radiation expert Dr. Charlie Teo, who warns "After 10 years' use of mobile phones the risk of developing a brain tumor is at least doubled" (7.39 min).
Health authorities call for caution
So far, authorities are reluctant to unambiguously communicate just how dangerous the use of mobile phones really is, even in spite of several hundred different acknowledged studies indicating a clear health hazard. However, the Danish Health authorities do warn about the extended use of mobile phones for more than brief conversation and they do advise against children using mobile phones in general. WHOrecommend an overall precautionary principle regarding the use of mobile phones and wireless devices. This is confirmed by many ongoing studies and thus no conclusive evidence of the long term effects of mobile radiation is yet available. However, WHO already has classified mobile radiation as a "potential cause of cancer".
Daily side effects:
- Fatigue and lack of motivation
- Memory problems
- Lack of concentration
- Sleeping problems
- Learning problems
Serious side effects:
- Increased risk of developing cancer
Scientific studies estimate young people using mobile phones have a 520% in-creased risk of developing cancer - for adults the risk is at 270%. (Source: Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, Vol. 25, Iss. 4, Dec. 2006, p. 349-360)
- Up to a 400% increased risk of deadly tumors
Mobile radiation may cause a certain type of malignant tumor called glioma. This tumor is deadly. Study results by the acknowledged Swedish researcher Lennart Hardell and his team from Ørebro University Hospital show how use of a mobile phone for more than 30 min per day over a 10 year-period increases the risk of developing this type of brain tumor with up to 400%.

- Increased heating of the brain
Mobile radiation is like microwaves: it heats up the brain in the same way microwaves heat up the food in a microwave oven.
- Negative effects on body cells, organs, tissue and DNA
Research has proven how mobile radiation disturbs the body's cells, organs and DNA which may cause imbalances and diseases. Also, mobile radiation harms the body's DNA possibly leading to biological disturbances, diseases and cancer. (Source: Professor Olle Johanson, Karolinska Universitet, Sweden)
- Weakened immune system
Research has proven how the immune system fights back once exposed to electromagnetic radiation. The immune system will defend itself as when attacked by virus or bacteria. Only, against electromagnetic radiation the immune system stands no chance and slowly deteriorates. (Source: Dr. Stephen Sinatra, Cardiologist, USA)
- Reduced fertility
Studies have proved a connection between mobile radiation and human fertility. In other words, mobile radiation may very well influence our ability to have children. (Source: http://www.sciencedaily.com/)
