Question: Can Cell Phone Radiation Hurt You?

Mobile phones emit and receive radio and microwave radiation in the range of 800 to 2600 MHz depending on your country and network.

Excessive exposure to ionising radiation can damage our cells and DNA, potentially causing burns, sickness or cancer.

Do cell phones emit harmful radiation?

Cell phones emit low levels of non-ionizing radiation when in use. The type of radiation emitted by cell phones is also referred to as radio frequency (RF) energy. As stated by the National Cancer Institute, “there is currently no consistent evidence that non-ionizing radiation increases cancer risk in humans.

Are cell phones too harmful?

There are certain harmful health effects, which might be caused by the immoderate use of cell phones. Apart from cancer risk, mobile phones influence our nervous system. They may cause headaches, decreased attention, shortness of temper, sleep disorders and depression, mostly among teenagers.

How much radiation does your phone give off?

The numbers refer to the rate of radiofrequency energy your body absorbs from the phone. The lower the number, the lower the radiation exposure. Most phones on the market fall between 0.35 and 1.59 watts per kilogram, which is the maximum level allowed by the U.S. government.

Is cell tower radiation harmful?

“At very high levels, RF energy is dangerous. It can heat the body’s tissues rapidly. However, such high levels are found only near certain equipment, such as powerful long-distance transmitters. At ground level, exposure to RF from sources like cellphone towers is usually very low.
