Cellphone Safety

On this page you will find links to articles about cellphone safety, electromagnetic fields, and answers to questions about cellphones and cancer.

Cellphones emit an electromagnetic field, which is a form of microwave radiation, that enters the brain when the cell phone is held against the ear, and there’s good research showing that the field does affect brain function.

Cellphone radiation falls into the microwave range and as such it generates heat. The human brain is very sensitive to heat and has bony structures behind the sinuses that are thought to specifically protect the pituitary gland from becoming overheated

Large population studies of the effect of cellphone use have almost exclusively focused on cancer and neglected the many other types of harm that electromagnetic radiation could potentially have on the human body.

The conclusion is clear: we know a little bit about possible harmful effects of cellphone radiation on humans, but there’s a lot more we need to know. In the meantime, it’s important to be cautious about cellphone use.
