Science in Seconds - Mobile Phone Dangers

Science in Seconds Know Everything RUMOURS – Mobile Phone Dangers Rheanna Sand: Mobile phones are everywhere. There are over 4 billion subscriptions worldwide representing 6 out of every 10 people and 8 out of every 5 teenagers, LOL. Does that mean the debate is over about the negative health effects? OMG. No way. Cell phones emit and receive electromagnetic waves very close to your brain. These waves are the same type used by radio and TV broadcasters and are non-ionizing, meaning they do not damage your DNA. But any form of radiation can be dangerous at high exposures, and the question is, do cell phones push the limit? Well, according to health regulations, radiation levels are always kept far below the limit of harm. But the huge, cancerous "elephant in the room" of course is brain tumors. The good news is there's no evidence that cell phone use leads to gliomas, a broad category of tumors of the brain and spinal cord. The bad news? At this point, there are no long-term studies. And there's more bad news. Rats exposed to cell phone radiation for two hours a week didn't perform as well on memory tests, even though they were shown the same text messages 50 percent faster than control rats. The most serious dangers from cell phones, though, have nothing to do with radiation. They can be carriers of superbugs or interfere with medical equipment. They can also conduct a lightning strike through your body if you're unlucky enough to get hit. And most serious though, cell phones distract drivers. Texting while driving can be just as bad as driving impaired. So be smart. Don't answer your phone when you're driving. Turn it off in hospitals. And... ...sorry, I have to take this. Hey, what's up? No, I'm not busy right now. Courtesy of Science in Seconds – All rights reserved Only for educational/non-profit purposes. (Translators are invited to put their name here)
