The Scary News About Cell Phones and Cancer

By now you’ve probably heard about the report from the World Health Organization which has classified the radiation that comes from cell phones as possibly carcinogenic. The cell phone-cancer link has been studied for years, and the findings have generally been cautious but leaning toward the side of the radiofrequency electromagnetic fields not causing cancer. But WHO’s report today is far more worrisome, connecting the exposure to these radio waves to certain types of brain tumors called gliomas.

Much more research needs to be done before we have a definitive answer, but for now, there’s a simple step you can take to protect yourself: Use an earpiece when talking on the phone. If you don’t have one yet, hold your phone as far from your head as you can when you talk on the phone. And because a verdict on the effects on children’s brains is nowhere near in yet—and there are concerns that because their skulls are thinner, radiation can penetrate more easily—it’s best to avoid having your child use a cell phone at all.

    One thing I’d prefer to comment on is that fat burning plan fast may be accomplished by the suitable diet and exercise. An individual’s size not merely affects appearance, but also the overall quality of life. Self-esteem, depressive disorder, health risks, and physical abilities are affected in an increase in weight. It is possible to make everything right whilst still having a gain. In such a circumstance, a condition may be the root cause. While excessive food and not enough workout are usually the culprit, common medical ailments and popular prescriptions may greatly amplify size. Kudos for your post right here.
