Can cell phones cause brain cancer?
After evaluating several studies on the possibility of a connection between cellphones and glioma and a noncancerous brain tumor known as acoustic neuroma, members of the International Agency for Research on Cancer — part of the World Health Organization — agreed that there’s limited evidence that cellphone radiation
How can you reduce the risk of getting cell phone cancer?
Cell phones and brain cancer—tips for reducing even the possibility of risk
- Make like a teenager and text instead of talking.
- Use the speaker phone feature.
- Try a Bluetooth wireless headset, but turn it off (and take it off) when it isn’t in use.
- Switch to a wired headset.
- Hold the phone an inch from your ear.
How cell phones affect the brain?
The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies cell phone radiation as a “possible human carcinogen” due to an increased risk of brain cancer from long-term and heavy use of cell phones. Human brain cells communicate via electrical impulses, which can be detected by non-invasive EEG (Electroencephalogram) measurements.
Do cell phones give off radiation?
Cell phones emit radiofrequency radiation (radio waves), a form of non-ionizing radiation, from their antennas. Parts of the body nearest to the antenna can absorb this energy. The number of cell phone users has increased rapidly.
