Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 What's so bad about it, anyways? People use cell phones every day. However, they have not been in existence long enough for us to know the true effects of them on our body. Cell phones emit radio waves, whichcould potentially cause cancer or other health problems in the future. What Causes These Issues? Sources - Radio mast with radio waves. Photography.

By Colin Ashenhurst Effects of Cell Phone Radiation Radio waves have the longest wavelengths in the EM spectrum. They can be rather small, but they can also be extremely large. Radio waves carry the signal of TVs, radios, and cell phones. Too much exposure to these waves may cause leukemia (cancer of blood cells), other forms of cancer, and other disorders. Exposure to cell phone radiation increases glucose in the brain. This can lead to infections that may alter the way cells and genes work. In 2011, the World Health Organization performed a study, and concluded that there is an increase in glioma (a type of tumor that starts in the brain or spine) and acoustic neuroma brain cancer (a type of brain cancer) in cell phone users. How can we Prevent These Negative Effects? Although we still don't know all the details about effects of cell phone radiation, there are still ways to protectyourself from harmful radio waves. The following will help prevent unwanted health problems:- Don't put your phone in your pocket.- Don't use your phone in an enclosed metal space, because your phone will work harder to make a connection.- Limit children's use of cell phones. Conclusion Overall, cell phones are useful, however,the effects they have on our body mayprove to be worse than not usinga cell phone at all. We will just haveto wait, as there is still a lot of researchand studying that needs to be done beforewe make an accurate conclusion.
