A threat to health? Oh no, radiation levels are too low to be a problem we are assured by the mobile phone industry. However, some medical researchers are adamant that we are exposing ourselves to electromagnetic fields and radiation that wreak havoc on everything from bone density to sperm quality.

An article in naturalmedicinehouse.com
(http://naturalmedicinehouse.com/?p=208) warns that heavy cellphone use can be lethal as radiation interferes with DNA repair and can lead to a wide array of ailments including cancer.
“One lady, who had no predisposing risk factors for cancer, had a bad habit of carrying her cell phone in her bra. After some time doctors revealed breast cancer. The cancerous cells lined up perfectly with the shape of her cell phone.
“According to research published in 2009, men who carried their cell phones on their belts (15 hrs/day, 6 days/week) had their bone mineral density lowered on the side of the pelvis where their mobile phones were carried because of the emitted electromagnetic fields. While another research project proved that it affects men’s sperm and its quality too.
“Another study by Dr. Siegal Sadetzki from Israel explained that you have a chance of getting salivary gland tumor (located on the place where you hold your cell phone) and the risk can be increased” the more you use your phone (5,500 calls during your lifetime gives you a 58% risk).
“The World Health Organization/International Agency for Research on Cancer issued a report back in 2011 that these devices might cause brain cancer, thus people should try to avoid using it as much as possible. Instead, text or use hands-free devices.
“Professor Lennart Handrell from Sweden says that teenagers who use cell phones heavily have 4 to 5 times risk for brain cancer since their thinner skulls allow a greater penetration of the radiation that enters their midbrain where tumors are more deadly. Moreover, pregnant women are advised to avoid cell phones since it increases the possibility of their children developing hyperactivity while in the womb.”
