Is Your Cell Phone Putting You at Risk? by Dr. Mercola

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones. Depending on which side of the argument you listen to, there’s either nothing to fear, or your phone is causing grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Where does the real truth lie?

Source Added commentary by Ed in red.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile (cell phone) devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behavior that surrounds them:

  • Nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults own a smartphone and over 250 million of them use their phones an average of six days a week
  • The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour
  • A whopping 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
  • As of December, 2015, 47 percent of homes used only cell phones
  • More than about half of U.K. cell phone users suffer from “nomophobia,” or the fear of being without their phone (and the number may be even higher for American users)

Clearly, cell phones aren’t going away anytime soon. I use my smartphone every day, too. But how I use mine most likely differs from how the typical user uses theirs…

The Enigma of Cell Phone Safety

Most conventional experts don’t view cell phone exposure as a problem, mainly because they only look at one component of cell phone safety.

Their focus is on the thermal effects of cell phones and how your body absorbs the radiofrequency energy. The industry insists that because the energy of the fields is too low to cause heating of tissues, it can’t have any biological effect.

These thermal or tissue heating effects are measured and assigned a rating known as SAR, which stands for Specific Absorption Rate.

Industry suggests you compare SAR ratings, but the numbers are meaningless

When buying a wireless phone, the industry suggests you compare ratings and purchase one with a lower rating.

Please understand that the SAR rating by itself is virtually worthless.

The SAR level only estimates the heat from the radiation penetrating into your head from a cell phone – just ONE component of concern!

The SAR level does not measure the risk from the frequencies of the cell phone, the erratic pulsing and modulation of the signals, or the magnetic fields created by the batteries.

Scientists now know that many of the effects from cell phones are non-thermal. In other words, they occur at levels too low to cause significant heating to tissues.

What You Need to Know About Cell Phone Radiation

The frequency of a cell phone’s waves falls between those emitted by FM radios and those from microwave ovens, all of which are considered “non-ionizing” forms of radiation.

When you make a call, text, or use data on your cell phone, here’s what happens:

Your phone sends radiofrequency, or RF waves from its antenna to nearby cell towers, and receives RF waves in return to its antenna.

If you are holding the phone next to your face, as most people do, then about 70 percent of the energy from the antenna is absorbed straight into your head.

As you can see from the diagram below, age makes a difference in how much of this energy can be absorbed into the tissue. A younger child’s skull is much thinner than an adult’s and still developing, therefore more radiation is able to penetrate the brain.

It’s not until around age 20 that your brain is fully developed.

These visual images should serve as a powerful reminder to parents that it’s never a good idea to allow a child to talk on a cell phone held close to the head!


As you move your cell phone away from your head, this radiation decreases rapidly. So, clearly, the further away from your body you can keep your phone, the better.

Incidentally, the manufacturer of one of the top-selling cell phones advises against direct body contact with their phones. This is what they say right on their website:

“To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as the built-in speakerphone, the supplied headphones, or other similar accessories. Carry phone at least 5mm away from your body to ensure exposure levels remain at or below the as-tested levels.”

One of the most important bits of advice I can give you is to avoid holding your phone directly against your head, especially while your call connects which is when the power surge is greatest.

Using your speakerphone function or a safe headset to keep your phone a safe distance away from your body is a much better option.

But Why Does the Wireless Industry Still Insist Cell Phones Are Safe?

You can search online and find study after study that says cell phone usage is safe. The wireless industry claims that thousands of studies have failed to pinpoint adverse effects.

But, is that really true?

First you need to dig deep and find out who funded the study. If it’s an industry-funded study, the results presented are just about guaranteed to favor the industry. Why would they publish results that didn’t?

But just because countless studies might conclude “no risk found,” it doesn’t mean those were the real scientific findings of the investigation!

The earlier one starts using cell phones, the more harmful its potential effects can be

Dr. Henry Lai, a University of Washington scientist in cellular and molecular engineering, reviewed 85 papers on the DNA-damaging effects of cell phone radiation. He and his colleague had found from their own research that cell phone radiation could cause DNA damage in brain cells.

What did he find when he took a closer look at these studies?

A whopping three-fourths of the papers that showed no toxic effects were funded either by the wireless industry or the military. Eighty percent of those that showed potential negative effects were not linked to the industry.

Even Time reported:

Independent studies on cell phone radiation found dangers at more than twice the rate of industry-funded studies.

We’re talking about a very lucrative industry here… The total revenue of the U.S. mobile wireless industry is over $171 billion!

Could it be that the wireless industry may be twisting science just enough to dodge or at least postpone regulation? They do have a lot at stake…

The 2011 Ruling That Delivered a Major Blow to the Wireless Industry

As cell phone usage around the world expands, evidence continues to mount against their safety, even though the industry still insists cell phones are safe.

Possibly the biggest blow to the industry came in 2011 when the International Agency for research on Cancer (IARC), an arm of the World Health Organization (WHO), declared cell phones a Class B carcinogen.

This classification puts cell phones squarely in the same category of certain pesticides and heavy metals as well as engine exhaust.

But that’s not all… There are now more than 20,000 publications in the scientific literature that show significant biological effects at exposures well within safety standards. Including about 4,000 that include non-thermal effects.

How Cell Phones Impact Your Cells’ Energy Centers – Your Mitochondria

Cell phones have been shown to harm your cells’ mitochondria

Your body uses electrical fields to communicate between your cells. The electromagnetic fields emitted by the phones are far more damaging to your body. Because they interfere with your body’s own cellular communication.

Another major way cell phones can potentially impact you is through their effect on your mitochondria within your cells.

Most of your cells have several hundred mitochondria. Over 90 percent of the energy that your body needs to function properly comes from the mitochondria. So their well-being is essential to your energy production.

Not only are they your body’s primary source of energy. Your cells’ mitochondria determine the speed at which your body ages. If your mitochondria are working optimally, your body ages at a normal rate.

Researchers have discovered that the radiation from cell phones can harm your mitochondria, including flipping certain genes within the mitochondria.

As important as your mitochondria are to your health, this potential damaging effect on genes is very concerning to me.

Is the Newest Technology Any Safer?

Industry tries to assure us that third and fourth generation cell phones are safer in terms of non-ionizing radiation.

But are they really?

There’s no proof that 3G or 4G is any safer. And if anything, the preliminary research suggests they may be even less safe.

Here’s the problem…

Today’s standards for radiofrequency emissions weren’t designed for cell phones.

Rather, the current federal standards were developed to guard against thermal effects. But remember, as I explained above, that’s not the issue. As we’ve already seen, most of the studies on cell phones show non-thermal effects.

What’s worrisome now is that evidence is suggesting exposure to cell phone radiation can have biological effects without raising temperature.

Radio frequency waves from cell phones have also been shown to produce “stress” proteins in human cells. Proteins that the body produces for self-protection.

I agree that getting rid of your cell phone is probably not an option these days. Today’s cell phones are much more than phones.  They’re often your camera, video recorder, hand-held computer, and your lifeline to staying in touch with your work and family.

But with all this distressing data and questionable research, there must be something we can do to help minimize exposure. I believe there is… Continue reading on

A Warning For All Parents Backed By Science: What WiFi, Cell Phones & More Are Really Doing To Our Health

Source | Collective Evolution

*This article only represents a very small fraction of the research regarding the dangers associated with these devices. We encourage you to further your own research, and just wanted to provide a base to let you know that it’s something more of us need to pay attention to.

Did you know that a child’s brain absorbs much more radiation than that of an adult?

Dr. Martin Blank, Ph.D., from the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics at Colombia University, has joined a group of scientists from around the world who are making an international appeal to the United Nations regarding the dangers associated with the use of various electromagnetic emitting devices, like cells phones and WiFi.

Below is a video of him outlining the various dangers associated with these devices.

Multiple studies have revealed that cell phone radiation can cause cancer. Did you know that The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified radio frequency fields (including those from cell phones) as a possible carcinogen in 2011? (source)  The dangers of cell phone use gained a lot of mainstream credibility in 2011 when the World Health Organization (WHO) admitted that cell phone radiation may cause cancer. The statement was based off of a cumulative decision made by a team of 31 scientists, from 14 different countries, after reviewing evidence that suggested this to be the case. You can read more about that HERE. It’s pretty startling news, especially given the fact that a child’s brain absorbs much more radiation than that of an adult.

The first cell phone generation is now  growing up, so if you are a parent, hopefully this gives you something to think about.

Wireless radiation causes cancer, according to the latest scientific findings

Wireless radiation causes cancer, according to the latest scientific findings

cell towers( The National Association for Children and Safe Technology (NACST) is calling on children’s health and cancer prevention organizations to make the issue of children’s exposure to wireless radiation in educational facilities a priority for 2015.

A 2014 study on wireless radiation, by the Hardell Group in Sweden, found a 3-fold risk with twenty-five years or more of cordless and cell phone use. Perhaps more worrying is the finding that people who first used cell or cordless phones before the age of twenty had the highest risk.

The science is clear: Cell phone use increases our risk of cancer

Another study by the same researchers found a correlation between wireless phone use and lower survival rates for people diagnosed with the most malignant form of brain tumor, gliomas. These two studies followed the CERENAT study which found that, “risks were higher for gliomas, temporal tumors, occupational and urban mobile phone use. “

The biggest wireless study carried out, the $25 million Interphone Study, found that: “regular use of a cell phone by adults can significantly increase the risk of gliomas by 40% with 1640 hours or more of use (this is about one half hour per day over ten years).” Given the established and emerging science, the NACST calls for students to be provided with a safe learning environment, free from wireless radiation.

Wireless technology – in educational settings – pose a serious threat to children’s health

The nations schools are now rife with wireless exposures because, as the NACST states, “there has been a national movement to digitalize learning in our schools”. The NACST points out these high exposures in classrooms are caused by:

  • Industrial strength routers
  • Thirty or more handheld devices or laptops – which all emit radiation

These exposures represent an unprecedented health risk to children because they are being exposed 6 hours a day, 5 days a week, for their entire school careers. This is in addition to their exposures outside of the educational setting, which given that most children now have cell phones and most homes are equipped with Wi-Fi is not inconsequential.

Children absorb up to ten times more radiation than adults

Children are more vulnerable than adults to the effects of wireless radiation for a variety of reasons:

  • Their bodies are still developing and the impacts of chronic exposure to radiation are more profound.
  • Research shows children absorb up to ten times more radiation than adults.
  • Safe limits for children have never been established.

This is an urgent ‘call for action’.

The National Association for Children and Safe Technology wants to see the following changes – immediately:

1. All new school technology should be hardwired.

2. All existing wireless systems should be replaced with hardwired systems.

3. The implementation of primary prevention efforts. The public needs to be educated as to the simple steps they can take to reduce exposure.

EMF exposures linked to a long list of chronic diseases

We forget that electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are all around us because we can’t see them, touch them or taste them. These exposures are linked to a long list of adverse biological effects including DNA damage and many serious diseases including cancer, brain tumors, and cardiovascular disease. The Bioinitiative Report details these adverse effects extensively.

EMFs come in different shapes and forms. There are 3 common forms of EMFs present in our homes, schools and places of work:

  • Magnetic fields – wherever current flows magnetic fields are present. The more current that flows the higher the magnetic field that is generated.
  • Electric fields – created by variations in voltage, these EMFs are present even if no current is flowing.
  • Radio frequency radiation – commonly known as wireless or cell phone radiation.

How dangerous are the EMF fields lurking inside your home?

Many common household devices emit all three forms of EMFs to a lesser or greater extent. For instance cell phones emit primarily radio frequency radiation but the battery in a cell phone is also the source of low level magnetic and electric fields.

Household wiring is a source of magnetic and electric fields, if there are wiring errors the magnetic fields can be significant. But household wiring can also be a source of radio frequency since the wiring system in your home can act as an antenna, emitting and receiving ambient radio frequency signals.

Take action and protect yourself from harm.

Measuring with an EMF meter is the only way to know what your exposures are. A good starter meter is the Trifield EMF meter* – since it can measure electric, magnetic and radio frequency radiation. Though admittedly it’s sensitivity to radio frequency radiation is quite limited. Nevertheless, it’s a good choice of meter because it combines three meters in one and it’s very easy to use.

Once you have a good EMF meter it’s child’s play to detect the EMFs in your environment. Slowly go through each of the rooms in your house, taking readings for each type of radiation and then eliminate or mitigate the hotspots.

Studies show that EMFs impact the quality of our sleep and the production of melatonin, an important hormone. Because of this the best place to start is the bedroom. Anything electrical in the bedroom is a potential source of EMFs.

That also means making sure your kids don’t sleep with their cell phones on. Better still don’t allow them to use their cell phone in the bedroom.

Your children need protecting at school but also you do need to take the necessary steps to protect them, and yourself, at home from these potentially very harmful exposures.
