Do you ever heard about radiation? My mom always telling me to watch television too close when I was a kid, coz she don’t want me to be exposed on too much radiation. This issue gets more and more attention because, there so many other device releases radiation including cell phone.

There is a study about cell phones double the risk of brain cancer and other diseases like acoustic neuromas. Acoustic neuroma is a benign tumor that particularly damages the hearing nerve. Scientists said that people who uses cell phone before the age of 20 has more than 5 times chances to develop brain cancer rather than those who didn’t and those who use cell phone before the age of 20 have 50% higher chance to get brain cancer.

Radio waves that transmit by cell phones and some other wireless device can cause :
  • brain tumors
  • harm blood cells
  • cellular changes
  • damage your DNA
  • damage your eyes
  • nerve-cell damage
  • accelerate and contribute to onset of autism
  • trigger Alzheimer’s disease
  • can cause sleep disruptions
  • fatigue and headaches
Symptoms that most people get from such device are headaches, dizziness and impotence.

For some of us, we really don’t know if it is bad or not. But, we better be aware and consider preventing some things that is bad for our health in order to keep ourselves healthy and strong. It’s not that you will no longer have to use your cell phone anymore but you have to limit yourself in using those devices and don’t let your children use cell phone if it is not an emergency.
