Have you ever wondered if the cell phones that we all depend on emit radiation and are safe to use?
Check out the new information posted by EWG, who undertook a 10-month research review to understand the risks -- and thei research is receiving a lot of attention. Turns out, cell phones do emit radiation -- enough so that scientists are concerned about potential cancer risks. We'd like to believe that cell phone radiation is safe, but no one can say for sure. Much more research is crucial for scientists to reach a conclusion.
"I still use my cell phone (WITH MY EMF PROTECTORS OF COURSE) -- BUT EWG and I believe that until scientists know much more about cell phone radiation, it's smart for consumers to buy phones with lower radiation emissions.
Four billion people around the globe own cell phones. As the market for new devices has grown, so have concerns about the safety of cell phone radiation.
Recent studies find significantly higher risks for brain and salivary gland tumors among people using cell phones for 10 years or longer. The state of the science is provocative and troubling, and much more research is essential. --EWG
As a result, EWG put together the most comprehensive online consumer guide to cell phone radiation, rating more than 1,000 cell phones marketed in the U.S.
Your cell phone emits radiation to send voice and text messages from you to the other caller. Some (not all) studies of frequent cell-phone users suggest this radiation may increase risks for cancer or children's behavior problems.
Use this guide from EWG to find your phone and safer, low-radiation choices. [more tips]
