After reviewing data from previous studies, the International Agency for Research on Cancer released a statement Tuesday asserting cellphones are possibly carcinogenic toward humans. The report was put together in Lyon, France, after a week-long conference with international experts for the IARC, which is the cancer arm of the World Health Organization. They analyzed previous studies to determine links between radiation and cancer when using mobile devices like cellphones.
Wow guys, cell phones are NON-IONIZING radiation. That means they cannot cause any genetic damage, only heating. Our bodies have an incredible ability to move heat.
Our blood vessels open up to move heat to the surface of our bodies. We sweat, we breathe hard. We can be put into a 220 degree room, HIGHER THAN THE BOILING POINT OF WATER, and survive. OK it isn't comfortable, but it works.
How hot is a 1 Watt bulb? Heck, how hot is a 40 Watt bulb?
A hand held cellular phone runs at a MAXIMUM of 0.6 Watts, and most of that energy is RF that goes out, not into our heads. Even so, 0.6 Watts is not going to be a heat level that is going to be impossible for our bodies to remove.
These alarmist "studies" are just stupid.
How can we get people to accept science, not this crap?
I always to wait till my cell phone connects before I put it up to my ear. Radiation is a fact of life in today's WIFI enabled society. The best thing you can do is to just make sure you and your family are not being harmed by it. http://thehealingfrequency.com/cell-phone-radiation-get-emf-protection/ Cell Phone Radiation can be made less harmless by just taking a few simple precautions.
The Healing Frequency dot com is a SALES web site, not a science web site.
The product they sell that they state you should buy to protect yourself is the "Quantum Shield," ... "that uses scalar or quantum energy (like a quantum pendant) can offer you a great deal of protection."
Show me the science!
Cell phone energy MAY cause some heating, but it is not nearly as easy to measure as they state, but the W.H.O. does correctly state it.
The W.H.O. is stating there MIGHT be a POSSIBILITY that the heating may cause problems over long periods of time, as in decades of heavy use. The US EPA says no,
And, while it is somewhat correct that "microwave" ovens heat food by the same method, it isn't nearly the same thing. First of all cellular phones operate around 860 MHz, which does not have much effect on water molecules. PCS phones, which are now included in all cell phones, operate at 1900 MHz, which also has little effect on water. The phones operate at 0.6 Watts MAXIMUM, and most of the time at much lower power, which is controlled by the cell site (tower). They also operate in free space, so the signal just keeps going,
Microwave ovens, on the other hand, operate at 2400 MHz, keep the energy contained in a metal box until it is absorbed by the food, heating it, AND THEY OPERATE AT AS MUCH AS 1200 OR EVEN MORE WATTS!
That is 2000 times more power, in an enclosed box instead of free space. The metal box increases that absorption by more than a factor of 100. Open the door on your microwave oven, defeat the interlocks and try to heat something up. Your success will be very limited, you will send too much energy at your body, and you will interfere with a whole lot of WiFi data.
I'M NOT SERIOUS ABOUT DEFEATING THE INTERLOCKS.
Microwave ovens don't operate at microwave frequencies, by the way. They operate at UHF, or Ultra High Frequencies. The definition of microwave is from 3 GHz (3,000 MHz) to 300 GHz.
Yeah, its always so useful to use old, uncertain, studies to produce warnings of danger of something. Seriously, if you want to know if there is danger, you need to do **good** studies, not fumble through the data on old ones, which have a lot of problems, not the least of which being that can't even say if *every* sort of EM radiation is a problem, or just some frequencies, or if what correlation did happen wasn't chance. Statements like this are not helping to answer the questions, they only, potentially, feed nut cases, or spread fear, in cases where it turns out, when additional studies produce a negative, it was all incorrect. Its unprofessional, and imho, unethical.
