How Safe Are Mobile Phones?

Millions of people own a mobile phone these days, and ever since they have been around
scientists question the fact of they are safe or not. Do they cause tumors, earaches,
mercury poisoning? All these health risks are mentioned in every article I found. But
nowhere could I find anything that was sure if mobiles did cause all of the above. This is
where science fails us. The problem is that mobile phones are still too new to know the
long-term effects on human. Mobile phones give of a radiation of radio frequency round
10MHz to 300Ghz. But so do other appliances. Why does mobiles especially get put in the
picture of being hazardous? Soon it will be clear whether the radio frequency emissions
from mobiles cause health effect.


Drivers who use there mobiles whilst driving are the only "health risk" that can be
proven, the drivers get distracted and lose control over the vehicle. Technology invented
something for this, hands-free sets. But now the question is do those hands free sets
really solve the problem? Researchers now are looking at if the hands free sets don't
cause other problems. A report from the magazine "which?" said that hands free kits raised
levels if radiation to the head from mobile phones by up to three and a half times. The
consumer association immediately stressed that it had done no research into this whether
this radiation could cause damage to the brain. That just proves that whenever there has
been research a report is released to prove that research wrong. Probably is done not to
cause any chaos.


Mobiles are said to cause brain tumors, they say this because there was found to be more
tumors of the same kind amongst mobile phone users. Mobiles cause memory loss, radiation
sickness. Mobiles can disturb your sleep pattern, according to the researchers from the
university of Zurich, mobile phones increases brain activity during our sleep. A really
strange result of the use of mobile phones is that mobile phones can release the poisonous
mercury from fillings causing brain damage, scientist say this is due to the electrical
fields given off by mobile phones can activate the mercury, giving off a gas. The fumes
attach the nervous system causing conditions from depression, asthma to Alzheimer's
disease and multiple sclerosis.


Some studies have suggested links between Radio frequency radiation and lymphoma,
microwaves and memory loss, mobile phone use and a rare type of brain cancer, mobile phone
radiation and DNA destruction, and mobile phone use and damaged scalp nerves


The world health Organization has asked for more and more research, but all the time and
money spent results in the same answer over and over again. When the press publishes such
reports, that these studies came up without result the scientists will report that their
data suggest it is unlikely mobile phones cause cancer, perhaps even highly unlikely. They
