Technology will always be part of the human culture as it makes our life easier than the way it used to be. However, you might also need to notice that it also has its own risk as we speak about the life, especially the health risk like what the cell phone is shown for us. Cancer could be one of many effects that is given by the cell phone as well as the mobile telephone and it becomes main concern for many people. Radiofrequency is one important factor we should know as the reason why cell phone could be really dangerous for our health. Radiofrequency energy that it is emitted by these phones is kind of dangerous and it is important for you to concern much more about that. What do you know about the radiofrequency energy? Have you ever heard of it before?
Form of electromagnetic radiation could be the simplest definition of what radiofrequency is and it can be divided into two big forms, which are ionizing (e.g., x-rays, radon, and cosmic rays) and non-ionizing (e.g., radiofrequency and extremely low-frequency or power frequency). By the time you get so close with that kind of radiation, the chance you get the cancer becomes much bigger than the way it used to be. Non-ionizing might be not dangerous as you see that there are no significant effects that thing to the human health. The general consensus has been that there is no consistent evidence that non-ionizing radiation increases cancer risk.
Based on the research of WHO (World Health Organization, Radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer. Through that fact, this world agency started to make lists mobile phone use in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform. There are number of scientists who conducted the research find out that there are enough evidences to categorize personal exposure as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” This study is conducted by 31 scientists from 14 countries, including the United States and they used the method of peer-reviewed studies in order to make the finding of cell phone safety.
Moreover, the research got the real data that cell phone could cause Glioma and acoustic neuroma brain cancer. Other types of cancer might not found yet as they are still looking for possibilities any kind of cancer that can caused by the cell phone. How such a thing could affect your whole body? Non-ionizing is kind of type the radiofrequency that comes from the cell phone and it’s kind of different from the X-ray, but closely same as a very low-powered microwave oven. You could imagine the effect of microwave as you put the food into it which is kind of amazing as it cooks the foods.
You might take the simple description for it as the waves that come from the cell phone are leading to a development of cancer and tumors. I might say that based on those researches; there could be a whole host of other effects like cognitive memory function, because the memory temporal lobes are where we hold our cell phones.
