I knew it! I have always felt my brain frying when I use a cell phone for even a short conversation. Like I spoke in my last post about my dislike of cell phones, now I have even more reason with this study by the WHO. The report doesn’t blow a knock out punch, but it did prove an increased risk for heavy users.
I think years later this will come to light. Remember in the 50’s when even pregnant mothers smoke and drank unaware of any ill effects? I think there is just not enough data at the moment as mobile phones have just been in use for 15 years.
Although conclusive human evidence hasn’t been found yet, I think it’s just a matter of time. Even my favorite TV doctor, Dr Oz, thinks that it is harmful for these reasons:
Cell phones expose us to a form of electromagnetic radiation called radiofrequency (RF) energy. Scientists have suspected that this radiation might increase the risk of brain cell damage leading to tumors, and in 1995 they found this to be the case in rats.
