Is Your Cell Phone To Blame For Your Health Problems?

Is Your Cell Phone and laptop to blame for your Health problems?

Are you having trouble sleeping?   Do you get frequent headaches?  Do you find that you are more irritable and stressed out lately?  Maybe you should look to your cell phone and wireless laptop for answers; all the electromagnetic radiation emitted by them might impact you more than you think.

Although the cell phone industry vehemently asserts that cell phones are perfectly safe, there is a growing body of evidence proving otherwise.  Although in the past, the World Health Organization maintained that cell phones have no adverse health effects, in 2011 they reversed that pronouncement and alerted us that radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer.  The agency now lists mobile phone use in the same "carcinogenic hazard" category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.


Buried deep in the manufacturer’s inserts, you will find directions for the usage of your cell phone which specifically instructs you to keep the phone at least 10mm away from your body.   This is a good way for them to avoid litigation in the future (See, you were putting the phone to your ear, carrying it in your pocket, thus it’s your fault, you didn’t use the phone correctly!)

In 2012 we were alerted that women who kept their cell phones in their bras (and men who kept the phones in their shirt pockets) seemed to be at a higher risk for breast cancer.

A new study recently published by the British Medical Journal revealed that exposure to cell phone towers alters brain function in alarming ways, causing a lack of concentration, irritability, difficulty sleeping and lack of appetite.

The study, authored by Professor Enrique A Navarro, concluded that the severity of such symptoms directly correlated to cell tower exposure levels. In other words, the closer a person lives to a cell tower, the greater the severity of their symptoms.

Mobile And Wireless - Largest Biological Experiment

The most basic fact about cell phones and cell towers is that they emit microwave radiation; so do Wi-Fi (wireless Internet) antennas, wireless computers, cordless (portable) phones and their base units, and all other wireless devices. 

As far as cell phones themselves are concerned, if you put one up to your head you are damaging your brain in a number of different ways. First, think of a microwave oven. A cell phone, like a microwave oven and unlike a hot shower, heats you from the inside out, not from the outside in. And there are no sensory nerve endings in the brain to warn you of a rise in temperature because we did not evolve with microwave radiation, and this never happens in nature. Worse, the structure of the head and brain is so complex and non-uniform that “hot spots” are produced, where heating can be tens or hundreds of times what it is nearby. Hot spots can occur both close to the surface of the skull and deep within the brain, and also on a molecular level.

Cell phones are regulated by the Federal Communications Commission, and you can find, in the packaging of most new phones, a number called the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR, which is supposed to indicate the rate at which energy is absorbed by the brain from that particular model. One problem, however, is the arbitrary assumption, upon which the FCC’s regulations are based, that the brain can safely dissipate added heat at a rate of up to 1 degree C per hour. Compounding this is the scandalous procedure used to demonstrate compliance with these limits and give each cell phone its SAR rating. The standard way to measure SAR is on a “phantom” consisting, incredibly, of a homogenous fluid encased in Plexiglas in the shape of a head. Presto, no hot spots! But in reality, people who use cell phones for hours per day are chronically heating places in their brain. The FCC’s safety standard, by the way, was developed by electrical engineers, not doctors.

I have read so many studies and I have a hard time believing any of the studies on either side as there is just to much to lose and gain on both sides.

There could be truth to them...but I have a hard time sorting it out.

It's very good info - but we are such a technology driven society and industry we don't want to believe it. There have been experiments by kids where they place a plant near a wireless router and it dies.  I now (usually) turn off my router at night. That is the most important time as your body heals and regenerates while you sleep.  My router/modem does not have a wireless off switch. Will eventually buy my own and get one with an off switch. Am not using my ipad as much in the house - so turning it off won't matter.

 Wow, just reading this and what an excellent post, with so many references. I tried to use the cell reception site to find towers but it isn't working anymore. Great job, Mirela. Some of this I knew but not all of it.

Sharon:   I just tried that site and although it's a bit slow, it does work.   I just entered North Myrtle Beach, SC and it gave me this:

Hi Mirela; This is not info we like to think about - since they are such necessary tools! I almost always put mine on speaker phone. I don't keep either my iphone or ipad in my bedroom. And I try to remember to turn off my modem/wireless at night!

Posted by Eileen Begley, Monterey Real Estate (Coldwell Banker, DelMonte) almost 5 years ago

Eileen Begley All good steps to protect yourself.  I always turn off my wireless router at night and I use the speaker, never putting it to my ear.

Hi Mirela.  I am scared to use my cell phone after reading your blog

Mirela,  I have known many people with brain tumors.  Beginning tonight, I am turning off my computer, phone and router and leaving all three in my office.
