Cell Phone Radiation – Should we be Worried?

By | January 19, 2013

Not enough people are asking, about the potential effects of radiation coming from cell phone radiation.   With over 300 million men, woman, and children, using cell phones;  I think we need to know, the extent of the risk, and whether or not it causes cancer. to our health.

Many billion-dollar industries are not quick to tout the inherent dangers of using their products.  For years, the tobacco, industry, claimed that their brand cigarettes were made of finest tobacco. They failed to mention, the chemicals added  to tobacco, that made them more addictive, nor that fact, they may cause cancer.

So, the question is, why hasn’t the government insisted cell phone companies, warn the public, of the possible dangers, associated with cell phone use?  The fact that cell phone companies introduce blue tooth technology, ear pieces, and speaker, lead me to believe, they know the dangers and effects of cell phone radiation exposure

Creating  these accessories, to lessen effects of radiation, without  causing a panic by broadcasting a warning to the general public.

Protecting Consumers

Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, has introduced H.R. 6358, the Cell Phone Right-to-Know Act.  His belief is, consumers have the right to know, if long term cell phones use, is harmful to our health.   Armed with the proper information, we can then govern ourselves accordingly.

Wireless technology  is not going  away, so we have to find ways to make it safer to use.  As the cell phone uses become more aware, of the possible dangers and the effects of cell phone radiation, they will demand a safer product.



Possible Effects of Radiation from Cell Phones

With the successful passing of the bill into law, like cigarettes, it will become mandatory to put warning labels on cell phones, and the amount of radiation emitted from the phone. The consumer will have the option of choosing a phone with minimal radiation levels. The World Health Organization, as well as other have done research on  cell phones and have determined, they have the potential to cause cancer in humans.

    It is important to take every precaution possible as the tech gadjets we use all emit some level of low level radiation.
