How Do I Know If My Cell Phone Is Cancerous?

How Do I Know If My Cell Phone Is Cancerous?

You may have heard that cell phones have been associated with certain types of cancer.  You may have also heard that even the Mayo Clinic has looked into the links between cell phone use and cancer.  But what is so dangerous about cell phones?

While there may be debate about the exact effects of cell phones due to relatively little data available, there is no debating the fact that cell phones emit a kind of radiation. Additionally, there is no arguing the fact that the kind of radiation that comes from cell phones can be absorbed by human tissue.  Many researchers have begun to study the links between cell phone use and brain cancer since proximity is an important factor in determining the level of exposure to harmful, tissue absorbing radiation.

Is My Cell Phone Cancerous?

Before you become too alarmed and toss your mobile device across the room and strap on a hazardous materials suit, let’s talk about which kinds of cell phones are considered to be cancerous. Here is the short answer to the question of which cell phones are more prone to cause cancer – we don’t know. Here’s what we do know – some cell phone manufacturers have included precautionary warnings and particular instructions for how to use their devices.

iPhone Instructions

For example, this CNN article reports that Apple’s iPhone safety manual talks about not exceeding FCC guidelines for radiation exposure:

“When using iPhone near your body for voice calls
or for wireless data transmission over a cellular network,
keep iPhone at least 15 millimeters (5/8 inch) away from the body.”

BlackBerry Instructions

According to the same article, BlackBerry also takes precautionary measures when advising owners/users!

“Keep the BlackBerry device at least 0.98 inch (25 millimeters)
from your body when the BlackBerry device is transmitting.”

While there is no direct correlation with the use of particular cell phone brands and cases of brain, breast, or prostate cancer, the World Health Organization now lists cell phone use as a carcinogenic hazard.
