WHO World Health Organization has recently warned of the
dangers of radiation from cell phones that are classified as
"very possible risk of cancer". The agency had previously
conducted a review of the effects of electromagnetic waves
on human health.
The declaration is based on the evidence in the study of
those who use mobile phones extensively. Known, high
intensity use of mobile phones resulted in an increased risk
of glioma, a malignant form of brain cancer.
Conclusions drawn the International Agency for Research on
Cancer (IARC), the agency under the WHO, applies to radio
frequency electromagnetic radiation in general, although
most research in this area centered on the mobile phone.
The findings are the culmination of IARC meeting attended by
31 scientists from 14 countries to examine hundreds of
results of previous studies that have been published about
the cancer risks posed by electromagnetic fields.
Jonathan Samet, a scientist at the University of Southern
California, who led the group stated, "There may be some
risk, and therefore we should keep a close link between cell
phones and cancer."
In the field of radio frequency refer to as "possibly
carcinogenic", WHO has put them on par with about 240 other
harmful agents, including low-level magnetic fields, powder,
and worked as a dry cleaner.
The report found no clear mechanism for the waves cause
brain tumors.Radiation from mobile phones is too weak to
cause cancer by breaking the DNA, which led scientists to
look for other causes.
"We found some common thread that tells us how cancer can
occur but there are gaps and uncertainties," said Samet.
Christopher Wild, Director of IARC, said that in looking at
the potential implications for public health, there should
be more research on long-term mobile phone use. "Pending the
availability of such information, it is important to take
pragmatic steps to reduce exposure such as hands-free
devices or SMS," he said.
