While driving down any American roadway it is not an unusual sight to see electrical lines, telephone poles, and cell phone towers. You may notice, however, that there do not seem to be enough cell phone towers in comparison to how many cell phone customers exist. This phenomenon is caused by the fact that you are not looking in the right places. Cell phone towers have gone into hiding, disguising themselves as trees, church steeples, and even gas station signs in an attempt to preserve the look of the landscape.
Cell phone towers are a necessary element to allow us to transmit our signals from cell phones and must be placed at appropriate intervals along the highway. Unlike other utility towers and poles, these structures are wireless and usually solitary. The number of towers needed in an area is directly proportional to the density of cell phone users. As different cell phone companies use different antennas that are all located on the same cell phone tower, these structures can be quite unsightly. Thus the cell phone tower began to be disguised.
Cell phone “trees” have become the most popular disguise that these technological giants assume. These “plants” come in every shape and form depending on what species of trees are close by to help them blend in. This disguise is usually part of a landscape theme or a forest. In the Pacific Northwest, Douglas firs are a popular species that are “planted” among the thick woods and forests in this mountainous region.
In southern California, different species of “palm trees” blend in with their natural counterparts along the streets and boulevards. In the desert of Arizona, “cacti” are springing up in the most remote regions. While birds do not nest in these “trees, other wildlife call these towers home, such as various bugs and insects who do not seem to be able to distinguish these “plants” from the natural ones.
There are several advantages to these cell phone “trees” that natural trees do not have. The cell phone species do not lose their leaves and maintain their color indefinitely. They never need pruning or trimming and maintain their original shape in and out of season. Cell phone “trees” are also immune to diseases, tree parasites, and drought. These “trees” do not require watering or even soil for that matter. They can survive just as easily in concrete and can be “planted” anywhere. If you are a hay fever sufferer, there is also no pollen present.
Opponents argue that these cell phone “trees” are dangerous to the surrounding environment. These individuals point out the fact that was previously mentioned that birds do not nest in these “plants”, explaining that the birds may know something that we do not and claim that these “trees” are a potential health hazard. While there has long been a debate about cancer being linked to power lines and electrical towers, a possible link between this disease and cell phone towers is being hotly debated.
Opponents also point out that while these cell phone “trees” look better that the traditional towers, the public may be exposing themselves to potential health hazards without even knowing that the towers are there. Of course, when these individuals are out locating these health-threatening towers, they are probably calling the locations in to their bosses on their cell phones.
Cell phone towers are a necessity to modern life, and if by disguising these mechanical monstrosities as beautiful trees can help us preserve the natural look of the surrounding environment, most people would agree that it is a beneficial policy.

The boss of one of the Westcountry’s leading food companies has called for more research into claims that mobile phones could cause cancer.
Brian Stein says early research is increasingly indicating the danger of excessive mobile phone use and Wi-Fi networks to some users, especially children.
Earlier this year, the World Health Organisation (WHO) classified radiation emitted by mobile phones as a possible cancer risk, with a similar threat to lead and the banned pesticide DDT.
And the European Commission also issued a warning saying that individuals should be protected from low-frequency radiation emitted by cell phones, masts and Wi-Fi systems.
Mr Stein, 62, said: “Much more research is needed.
“Meanwhile, people should be protected from this potential hazard in public places, schools and their homes.”
Mr Stein, the chief group executive of Samworth Brothers, a partner company of Tamar Foods and Gingsters
in Callington, South East Cornwall, began suffering the effects of low-frequency radiation six years ago when he experienced pain when using his mobile phone.
“I began getting weird sensations in my ear if I went near a computer or TV, any electrical equipment with a microchip” he said.
“I took the view that I was a freak and kept quiet, but it was difficult because I couldn’t drive a modern car with computers on board.”
Mr Stein’s research eventually led him to the diagnosis that he is electro-sensitive, a condition he shares with several thousand people in the UK.
Electro sensitivity is caused by the thousands of magnetic fields that surround us, from mobile and cordless phones to other wireless devices, including car sat-nav kits. The symptoms include sleep problems, headaches, tinnitus and earache, chest pains, loss of memory, poor concentration and depression.
Fellow sufferer and top DJ Steve Miller, who lives near Falmouth, says he has had to cancel lucrative gigs around the world due to the condition, including sets this year at Glastonbury and Ibiza.
Mr Miller, known to fans of club music as Afterlife, gets headaches and dizziness near Wi-Fi signals and now carries a detector grading the danger levels from one to five.
He said: “A Wi-Fi signal between one and two causes me to feel depressed and irritable, but between three and five gives me a splitting headache followed by dizziness and slight nausea.
If I walk down the main street these days I feel light-headed and can’t stop or go into any of the shops so have decided to give that part of town a wide berth.”
According to Mr Stein, who spoke at the annual conference of support group Electrosensitivity UK on Saturday, the issue is taken more seriously in Europe and other parts of the world.
In May the European Parliamentary Assembly issued a report which recommended the use of Wi-Fi be restricted in public places and schools.
It urged a precautionary
approach and a revision of the current thresholds in order not to repeat past mistakes made with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco.
The declaration that low-level radiation is a cancer risk was based on evidence in published studies that intensive use of mobile phones might lead to an increased risk of glioma, a malignant form of brain cancer.
Luxembourg Socialist MEP Jean Huss said the resolution “delivered a clear wake-up call” that EU member states should take precautionary measures.
The UK Health Protection Agency (HPA), while acknowledging the previous international studies, has stopped short of admitting that low-level radiation causes cancer.
An HPA spokesman said there was “no clear scientific evidence” of a cancer risk at levels below international guidelines, but admitted that “the possibility remains”.
“Given the possibility of long-term cancer effects, excessive use of mobile phones by children should be discouraged,” the spokesman added.
“Exposures from Wi-Fi are much less than from mobile phones, and well within
international guidelines, so there is no reason why schools and others should not continue to use the technology.”
Mr Stein said he was not calling for a ban on mobile phones or Wi-Fi networks, but that sensible precautions are taken, including the siting of mobile phone masts.
“In many European countries Wi-Fi is banned from schools. Children can still access wireless, but it is hard-wired into their classrooms, so they are not exposed to radiation.
“When we officially recognise that electromagnetic fields do cause cancer, then we may find a solution.”

Its Those Subtle Adverse Effects You Need To Watch Out For
Electrosensitivity, like any chronic disease brings with it its share of hardship and suffering. But this pales in comparison to what Steve Cooper endured.
Steve spent more than 40 hours a week building power microwave amplifiers for the base stations of cell towers. He developed numerous, seemingly unrelated, symptoms, which eventually lead to Toxic Encephalopathy (brain damage due to toxic exposure), a brain tumor and cancer.
Sadly, aged just 48 years old, Steve Cooper succumbed to his symptoms.
Desperate to determine whether a link existed between her husbands exposure and his illness, his wife Carleigh Cooper began researching the effects of cell phone radiation on the human body. She wrote a book on her findings called Cell Phones and The Dark Deception. In it she states:
“ I realize that Steve’s exposure was greater than any you might experience. Nevertheless, research reveals that even the smallest injuries resulting from this type of exposure can eliminate and progress. In other words prior to developing any permanent, recognizable damage from cell phone use, such as cancer, brain tumors, brain damage, or Alzheimer’s disease, other adverse effects slowly and subtly creep in under the radar.”
It is precisely these subtle adverse effects that we all, given that pretty much everyone on the planet is exposed in some way to EMFs, need to keep our eye on.
Here is a brief (all too) interview with Carleigh Cooper and the transcript is shown below:
Cell Phones and the Dark Deception
Gary: “Our guest’s late husband, for 16 years, tested and repaired the power microwave amplifiers for the base stations of cell towers. He developed numerous, seemingly unrelated symptoms which eventually lead to brain damage, brain tumor, cancer. Desperate to determine whether a link existed between her husband exposure and his illness, our guest Carleigh Cooper began researching the effects of cell phone radiation on the human body and what she found is the basis of an eye opening book. It’s called Cell Phones and The Dark Deception.
Nobody wants to talk about this including those of us who use the phones because we don’t want to put our phones down. Joining us today and I hope I’m pronouncing your first name right. Usually, it’s the last name I get wrong. Carleigh Cooper, welcome to News Talk online on the Paltalk News Network.
(So do I really have to worry about the cell phone that I use constantly on the go here in New York City?) You know what Gary, yes I’m sorry to tell you that you do have to worry about your cell phone and being on it all the time, and you also need to be concerned if you are keeping your cell phone on your belt and in your pants pockets. (Well, why is that? I’m not holding it up to my head and the concern is about brain tumors, right?) Well there are a lot of deceptions and a lot of concerns. The one that seems to be most prominent all the time is the work of brain tumor and brain cancer, and I think the reason why that has always been the focus is because that may never happen for 20 even 30 years.
Early Danger Signs
I think one of the deceptions is that you are not being told what symptoms you need to look for prior to ever developing cancer. I mean, you may or you may not develop cancer. Of course the risk is greater if you use your cell phone a lot more. But there are precursors that take place as it was with my husband. Prior to ever developing damage, or brain cancer and most people don’t realize that there is a link. That 70% of cell phone users experience 1 of 7 common side effects from cell phone use.
Common Side Effects
(And what might those be, I would imagine blurred vision might be one of them?) You know what, cell phone radiation is absorbed readily in the eyes, and like you mentioned before the brain absorbs a lot of radiation. After 3 to 5 years. Well let me back up. One of the deceptions of cell phones is that you can use your cell phone; you can be on it for 15 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour and there are no responses from your body for that use. It’s a cumulative effect. So although your brain has no pain receptors, and you are not feeling any kind of response, no headache, you assume that it is safe.
Well what happens, like with other toxic exposures, is this exposure accumulates. As you continue the exposure, then adverse health effects start to occur, you just can’t relate it back to what the cause or what the source was. Just like smoking when you get cancer, you’re not thinking back to a cigarette you had necessarily or you weren’t before you were told.”

There is still confusion in the minds of many as to the adverse health effects of cell phone radiation.
Thanks to one of my readers,
now, here in one place,
in one little downloadable pdf file you can print out graphs and charts on 13 important cell phone studies.
Here is the link for the printout and below is my interpretation. Sometimes its nice to just let the facts speak for themselves….
Effects of Cell Phone Towers
San Francisco, Tower built in 1970s
Looking at data from 1973-1988, a study was carried out in San Francisco to investigate how the risk of cancer was associated with the distance from the Surto cell phone tower that was built in the 1970’s.
The study found that the cancer risk increased 10 fold for residents who lived less than 2kms from the tower. There was a 2 fold increase in cancer risk for residents that lived 6kms away from the tower. The study found that children who lived less than 2 km from the tower were 100 times more at risk of brain cancer. The risk of lymphoma and leukemia increased 8 times for residents that lived less than 2kms away from the Surto tower.
Salzburg, Austria Tower built 1984
A study done in Salzburg, Austria investigated the relationship between a tower built in 1984 and increased cancer risk. The study found that residents who were exposed to more than 1000 microwatts per square meter (µW/M2) were 8 times more likely to have all types of cancer, 121 times more likely to have brain cancer and 23 times more likely to have breast cancer. The study found there was no increased risk to cancer when residents were exposed to less than 10 µW/M2.
Naila, Germany Tower built in 1993
In Germany, a study was conducted to access the relative risk to cancers for residents who lived near a tower built in 1993 in Naila. The study found that after 5 years or less, there was no marked increase in cancer risk. However, after 6-10 years of exposure, there was a 3 fold increase in the cancer risk for residents who lived less than 400 meters from the tower. For residents who lived more than 400 meters away from the tower, there was no marked increase in cancer risk.
Netanya, Israel Tower built in 1996
In Netanya Israel, a study investigated the increased risk to cancer from a tower built in 1996 for men and women. They used a neighboring town with no tower as a control group. The study found that men who lived less than 350 meters from the tower had no marked increase in cancer risk. However, women who lived less than 350 meters from the tower were 10 times more likely to have cancer.
A meta-analysis of studies data on childhood Leukemia published in 2000 found that children were 2 times more likely to have leukemia if they had been exposed to more than 0.4 µT (microtesla) of electromagnetic frequencies. There was little or no increased risk of leukemia if the children were exposed to less than 0.2 µT of EMFs.
Effects of Cell Phone Radiation
The interphone study was published in 2010 and was aimed at accessing the health effects of cell phone use. The study found that for subjects who had more than 1640 hours of cell phone use in their lifetime, whom they labeled as the “high risk group”, were 2 times more likely to develop a brain tumor in the temporal lobe. The temporal lobe is the part of the brain closest to a cell phone antenna when it’s held next to the ear. The study also found brain tumors were twice as likely to be found on the same side of the head as phone use.
How Long Before In High Risk Group?
Data published on average minutes of cell phone use per month in USA shows that it takes colored people on average 6 years to accumulate more than 1640 hours of cell phone use and enter the “high risk group.” It takes Hispanics 10 years, Asians 12 years and Whites 13 years to accumulate 1640 hrs of cell phone use.
Latency Period before Diagnosis
It takes on average 40 to 50 years from when you start smoking before you’re diagnosed with lung cancer, 30-40 years from exposure to asbestos before you are diagnosed with mesothelioma, and 20 to 30 years from exposure to occupational dyes before you’re diagnosed with bladder tumors. Infants who were exposed to radioactive radiation from the Chernobyl accident took on average 10 years before they were diagnosed with thyroid carcenoma.
Mobile Cell Subscriptions per 100 Inhabitants (World)
In the year 2000, 12% of the world population had cell phone subscriptions. In the year 2010, 78% of the world population had a cell phone subscription. It’s estimated that by the year 2030 close to 100% of the world population will have a cell phone subscription.
Meta-Analysis Cell Phone Research Bias
A study published in 2009 by Moskowitz et al in the Journal of Clinical Oncology investigated the research bias in blinded and un-blinded studies. In blinded studies, the study is done in such a way that the patients or subjects do not know what treatment they are receiving to ensure that the results are not affected by a placebo effect. In blinded studies, the meta-analysis found there was on average a 1.35 times increase in cancer risk for subjects who had more than 10 years of cell phone use. For un-blinded studies, the meta-analysis found a lower increased cancer risk.
Meta-Analysis Cell Phone Funding Bias
Another meta-analysis published in 2005 investigated the “funding bias” between industrial and independently funded research. The study found that most, if not all, independently funded research found an increase risk of gliomas. Conversely most industry funded research reported decreased risk to gliomas.
Brain Absorption of Cell Phone Radiation
Images of the brain of a 5 year old, 10 year old and an adult reveal that children absorb far more RF radiation from cell phones than adults.
US Cell Phone Subscriptions
Data collected in 2000-2004 from different States in the US revealed that there was a strong positive correlation between the number of cell phone subscriptions and the incidence of brain tumors in the States. The correlation was found to be independent of income, age and population.
Blood-Brain Barrier Leakage in Rats
A study was conducted in 2003 to investigate how SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) affected the brain barrier leakage in rats. The study found there was a marked decrease in brain barrier leakage as the SAR was reduced from 200 mW/Kg to 0 mW/Kg.
Cell Phones and Male Fertility
In January 2008, a study done on a group of men undergoing infertility evaluation that looked at the relationship between number of hours the men had a cell phone and their fertility. The study found that as the number of hours with a cell phone increased from 0 to 4, sperm count and motility decreased in all user groups. Sperm count decreased from 85million/ml to 50 million/ml and motility decreased from 67% to 44% in the 0hrs and 4hrs of cell phone usage.
120 Studies Showing The Adverse Health Affects of Cell Phone Radiation
If the above has whetted your appetite then here is another great resource. This is a listing of 120 (the heading says there are 139 but I count 120) peer-reviewed scientific studies showing biological effects from RF radiation exposure of cell phones at levels below the recommended SAR levels. Click here for the link. The actual links in the document don’t seem to work, but they are correct. You can either type in manually the URL to find the study or do a Google search.

Senator Mark Leno: “I am Senator Mark Leno and I appreciate you joining us as we introduce this bill. It is on a new subject to be discussed here in the capital so I hope you bear with me as we walk you through the thought process that led us to the introduction of this bill. It has to do with cell phones which we know are ubiquitous. They are in our lives to stay, they have enriched our lives, they have bettered our lives in ways that we are only beginning to understand. Over 4 billion people on the planet now are using cell phones regularly and that includes over 270 million Americans. Cell phones emit radio frequency radiation which does have human health effects.
FCC SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) Standard
In 1992 the Federal Communications Commission adopted the industry designed standards of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, the IEEE, and the standard is that the maximum level of radiation emitted from a cell phone and absorbed by the human brain and body would be the Specific Absorption Rate. This is a term you will get to know. The SAR was set to be 1.6 watts per kilogram. So that is the federal standard that the FCC set. So clearly if there is a standard, there was a concern that if it is above the 1.6 there is very serious or more serious health concerns. This 1992 decision by the FCC was based on animal studies conducted in the late 1970′s and 1980′s. So we are using tests that were done many decades ago, a standard that was set almost 2 decades ago. So this standard was adopted decades before the concept of smart phones and devices so convenient that we carry them on our bodies continually and use them for hours on end and this standard has not been revisited since then.
Recent Studies On Cell Phone Radiation Dangers
Many recent studies in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and England have shown serious concerns and health risks in both extended use and especially for children. I think we can say definitively that there are no industry studies that can prove that there are no health concerns for use extended over 10 years. So when you hear the industry say that, “no this is safe we have looked at it and all of these federal agencies have.” None of them have worked with studies that go beyond 10 years and that is the concern because we know, especially with younger people who are starting to use them at 10 or 15 years of age, they are going to be using them for 3, 4, 5 decades and clearly even people my age approaching 60 have considerably been using them a couple of decades.
The San Francisco Ordinance
As a result of all this new information there were congregational hearings held in September of 2008. Subsequent to those congressional hearings, the San Francisco department of Environment, which is represented here today, passed a resolution at the local level urging the mayor and the board of supervisors, which the mayor has now done and I want to recognize Mayor Garvin’s leadership on this issue, having introduced a local ordinance which does that which the bill we are going to discuss today will do. It will require that this SAR be disclosed to consumers at the point of purchase, both on their website and at the retail location; that this SAR will also be disclosed on the packaging, not on the cell phone itself, but on the packaging of the cell and also on all instructional materials. This is the point I want to make, if there is reason enough for the FCC to have set an SAR standard 18 years ago and require in that SAR law that manufactures must notify the FCC what that SAR is, why shouldn’t we not require also that be disclosed to the consumer? Let consumers make informed choices and if there is no health concern whatsoever the question has to be asked why 18 years ago did the FCC set a standard?
Cell Phone Legislation In Other Countries
So I want to share with you what some of these other nations have done. Nation after nation have taken steps. The Scandinavian nations, Israel, Great Britain, Germany, France, and Canada have all taken steps to inform their consumers at the Federal level in all of these countries that parents should limit cell phone use for their children. They are also have recommendations for safe cell phone use. In France there is pending legislation which would outlaw marketing of cell phones to children. So, many of our trading partners have also already taken very significant steps forward, I think what we are proposing here today is very modest.
United States National Cancer Institute Statements
And then I just want to share with you a couple of statements made by the United States National Cancer institute and this was updated in September 2009. So this is the statement of the United States National Cancer Institute: “There is concern that the radio frequency energy produced by cellular phones may affect the brain and nervous system tissue in the head because the hand held cellular telephones are usually held close to the head.” The United States National Cancer Institute also said: “cellular telephone use is increasing rapidly in children and adolescences and they are likely to accumulate many years of exposure during their lives. In addition, children maybe at a greater risk because their nervous system are still developing at the time of exposure…..”
Given the power of the cell phone lobby there is every chance that the Bill will be scuppered.
But whether it is this Bill or another one I have high hopes that legislation along the lines of SB932 to make users aware of the dangers of cell phone radiation before they buy will find its way on to the statute books.

Cell phones emit a form of radiation called radio frequency energy. FACT.
In the US the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has established maximum exposure limits to limit the health effects from this radiation. FACT.
These exposure limits require that the cell phone must be used with a minimum of 1.5 cm (0.16 in.) separation from the body. FACT.
Cell phone users who put their phones in their pockets or hold their cell phones directly against their bodies are very likely to exceed the established safe levels. FACT.
This fact, however, is typically buried deep in the cell phone’s user manual and sealed in the retail packaging.
Senate Bill 932 requires that the safety information currently included in cell phone user manuals be posted on point-of-purchase display materials and on the manufacturer’s website.
This Bill makes sooo much sense. Will it be passed?

It’s one of the signs of the approaching food collapse our world will soon be facing: Honeybees are disappearing at a truly alarming rate all around the world. Up to 30 percent of the honeybee population is collapsing in North America every year, and there’s no end in sight to “the silence of the bees.”
Honeybees, of course, pollinate about a third of all the food consumed by first-world nations. Without them, the global food supply crashes and food prices skyrocket. The human population, not surprisingly, would plummet. Honeybees are absolutely crucial to the chain of life on planet Earth, and they are dying in record numbers.
Efforts to understand the cause of the honeybee population collapse (sometimes called “Colony Collapse Disorder”) have so far pointed to pesticides, air pollution and even GMOs. All of those are no doubt important factors, but new research carried out at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology may have unveiled the real key: Cell phone signals.
How cell towers cause honeybee hives to collapse
Researcher Daniel Favre and his colleagues performed 83 experiment recording the reaction of honeybees to cell phones in their off state, standby state or active talking state. It turns out that when cell phones are in their “active” state (sending or receiving signals), honeybees are strongly disoriented and suffer from widespread miscommunication that causes them to stop seeking out food and begin swarming.
Specifically, their “worker piping” activity increases by 1000 percent (ten times).
As Favre explains in his paper, entitled “Mobile phone-induced honeybee worker piping:”
Worker piping in a bee colony is not frequent, and when it occurs in a colony, that is not in a swarming process, no more than two bees are simultaneously active. The induction of honeybee worker piping by the electromagnetic fields of mobile phones might have dramatic consequences in terms of colony losses due to unexpected swarming.
Favre went on to tell Fast Company.
“Among other factors such as the varroa mite and pesticides, signals from mobile phones and masts could be contributing to the decline of honeybees around the world. I am calling the international scientific community for more research in this field.”
Of course, by the time additional studies are done, it may simply be too late. If the honeybee population collapse continues for just a few more years, pollination of the global food supply may become nearly impossible. That will lead to the great die-off of human beings.
Funny how that works, isn’t it? Imagine the narrative of future historians: Humans multiplied and expanded their cell phone towers to the point where the pollinators all died. Then human civilization collapsed and the cell towers went silent. Within a decade, the honeybees were once again prolific and healthy…
Honeybees don’t need humans, you see. But we need them.
The arrogance of science and technology
In Rome, the scientists manufactured the municipal water delivery canals and pipes out of lead, thereby causing the widespread lead poisoning of the population without even knowing it. Science and technology has always come with a heavy dose of arrogance and willful ignorance. Today, the pesticide chemical companies keep producing toxics that poison our planet, and they keep doing it in the name of “scientific agriculture.”
See my related documentary – The God Within – to understand just how dark and deep this abandonment of life by the scientific community reality goes: http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=E3B38…
Whether it’s pesticides, cell towers, GMOs or some other technology, scientists always insist their technologies are harmless to the natural world, even while the sixth great extinction is now under way on planet Earth. But no one can deny that the collapse of the honeybees is indeed taking place, and the beauty of Mother Nature is that when so-called “scientific advancements” get completely out of balance with the natural world and actually become a threat to life on Earth, the world has a way of keeping the expansion of the human race in check. It’s called population collapse. And it’s coming soon.
If we could turn off the cell towers, halt the GMOs, stop the spraying of pesticides and end the mass pharmaceutical contamination of our planet, then our honeybees (and other important animal species) might have a chance. But human beings are too shortsighted to understand their role in causing almost anything that impacts the delicate web of life on Earth. So humans will deny any responsibility for their actions, cover up the truth about what’s really going on, and even accelerate their own global population collapse.
Science cannot turn a seed into a living food plant
It will all be led by “science” and “technology,” of course.
And yet all the science in the world can’t create one scrap of real food that will keep you alive. Only Mother Nature can grow a plant from a seed, pollinate it, produce a flower and then a vegetable or fruit. Only Mother Nature can keep us alive, not science and not technology. And in the end, when the history of our modern world is fully written, it will show how the scientists nearly wiped out the human race through their arrogance, their mass poisoning of the world, and their complete disregard for the value of life.

It seems we’re talking each other to death. The latest scaremaking the rounds — really, it’s just an old bugaboo revived andrefurbished — is the theory that talking on a cell phone will giveyou brain cancer.
Now, I’ve involuntarily heard enough cell phone conversations tofully believe that too much time on the cell can rot the brain — atleast the brains of the folks who discuss their intimate lives inthe checkout lanes at WalMart.
Still, the loquacious manifestation of cerebral insufficiency isa long, long stretch from glioma. one is annoying. The other isdownright scary.
Cancer can kill you.
And given half a chance, it will.
So when the New York Times starts running stories that implythat time on the phone with your brother-in-law could do more thanjust bore you to death, folks notice. and when the organizationmaking the claim advises the World Health Organization, peoplestart thinking about reinstalling land lines and writingletters.
But this is a case where reading the whole story goes a long waytoward untying the knots in your stomach. The International Agencyfor Research on Cancer has classified cell phone use as a“possible” cancer cause.
Also on that list are fuel oil, gasoline, coffee, pickledvegetables and talcum powder.
“Possible” means just that — they can’t rule it out but there’snot enough evidence to say it will, or even that it’s likely to. Inshort, it ain’t necessarily so.
Still, in a lot of ways, possibility is more frightening thancertainty. The verdict is in on cigarettes and asbestos, so we knowwell enough to avoid them. But baby powder?
That’s the spooky thing about cancer. On film, Ingmar Bergmanfamously depicted Death as a chess player. Cancer, I would venture,is closer to playing the slots: Hit on a certain combination offactors and claim the jackpot no one wants to collect.
Some diseases are easy — dodge the bug, kill the bug and you’rehome-free. keep your cholesterol down and your arteries clean andthe ticker keeps ticking. If we know the cause and can predict theeffect, we feel we understand, that we have some control, even whenthere’s little or nothing to be done.
So when the phone rings we can’t help but wonder if there isn’ta better reason not to answer than to avoid an unpleasant talk withanother bill collector. We eat broccoli and drink green tea with anappetite fueled by hope and fear in equal parts. We get scoped andprobed, irradiated and examined, hoping to tilt the scale just atad in our favor.
And just when we think we have things figured out, we read thatsomething else is “possible.”
Something else to make that daily wager more complicated. Anagging reminder that nothing in life is a sure bet.

With the popularity of mobile phones, is now basically a cell phone, but phone not leave the body, many people prefer to phone in your pocket, some people like to get suspended from the chest, and some people even sleep at night, do not shut down, but you know that cell phone radiation? how do we stay away from it, the following 10 ways to tell you a little!
steps / methodsanother phone into the bedroom to sleep, not the phone on the pillow. melatonin will reduce the radiation secretion not only affects the quality of sleep, the body will accelerate the damaging effects of free radicals, ultimately leading to cancer and other diseases.

If you have a young child at the moment, then you will probably have been asked whether they can have a mobile phone or not. If you are worried about the fact that the radiation might be damaging their brains, then you should take into account the fact that not everything means that they will have radiation damage.
Firstly, if your child uses text messaging more than phone calls, then you should rest assured that this is not as dangerous. Because your child is not holding the phone near their head, the radiation is not getting to their brain so this is a much safer way to communicate with them.
Even if they wish to make phone calls, then you can buy them a hands free device which means that they won’t have to hold their phone next to their ear.
In addition to the health issues that are involved with having a mobile phone, then you should also make sure that your child is not spending too much money on their mobile phone. You should be able to set limits on their phones so that they don’t have to spend more money than you’re happy for them to spend on phone calls.
The final issue that you need to be aware of is the fact that you can get internet on most phones these days, so you should make sure that you know who your child is talking to. Encourage them to be open with you about who they’re chatting to, and you should be sure that your child can use their mobile phone healthily and safely.
So, if your child is insisting that they want a mobile phone, you can rest safely in the knowledge that you should be able to allow them to do this and stay healthy at the same time.
