Alarmed by news reports that cellphones could possibly cause brain tumors? Here’s what we know so far. To complete this how-to, you will need: Facts Precautions
Step 1: Understand cellphone radiation Know what “cellphone radiation” is. Cellphones emit radiofrequency energy, a form of non-ionizing radiation. Ionizing radiation, the kind produced by X-ray machines, has been linked to cancer; nonionizing radiation has not.
Step 2: Understand a research finding Understand the classification of the International Agency for Research on Cancer, which evaluates environmental and lifestyle factors for possible links to cancer. The IARC classifies cellphones as a “possible” carcinogen, meaning it’s not certain whether they pose a cancer risk. The International Agency for Research on Cancer also lists coffee and pickled vegetables as possible carcinogens.
Step 3: Understand the confusion Understand why the IARC classification is confusing. Some studies into possible links between cellphones and cancer have found a higher risk of brain tumors, while others have found a lower risk. Some scientists point out that cellphones have been in use for years with no subsequent increase in brain tumors; others say there hasn’t been enough time to determine the effect on younger generations who began using cellphones in childhood.
Step 4: Play it safe Play it safe by reducing your exposure to cellphone radiation. Use speakerphone or a wired earpiece — a ferrite bead will lower your exposure …
