Cell Phones Cancer

Monday, 6 June 2011

Cell phones cancer- Cell phone raidtaions can cause brain cancer. The announcement comes from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Like the World Health Organization, the American Cancer Society relies on IARC for evaluation of cancer risks.
The WHO advises that people use hands free kits and text messaging whenever possible.A panel of 31 experts reviewed dozens of scientific studies. They focused particularly on 10 studies done in Britain. Nine of them showed no link but the 10th one did. The panel chose to classify cell phones as a "2-B" cancer risk, meaning that they are possibly carcinogenic to human beings.
That classification puts cell phones in the same category as coffee, exhaust fumes and the pesticide DDT.
Cell phones emit radiofrequency (RF) energy, which is another name for radio waves.Research suggests that the amount of RF energy produced by cell phones is too low to cause significant tissue heating or an increase in body temperature.
The type of radiation coming out of a cell phone is called non-ionizing. It is not like an X-ray, but more like a very low-powered microwave oven.What that means is they found some evidence of increase in glioma and acoustic neuroma brain cancer for mobile phone users, but have not been able to draw conclusions for other types of cancers.
