Cellphone radiation might be more dangerous than previously thought

Posted: , by Nick T.

Cellphone radiation might be more dangerous than previously thought
Another argument has fueled even further the fierce dispute whether cellphone radiation can affect our health or not. Even though many researchers claim that cellphone radio signals simply do not carry enough power in order to cause any damage, a recent paper by Bill Bruno, a theoretical biologist at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, suggests that given the necessary circumstances, microwave photons can interfere with live tissue in a way that has not been taken into consideration before.

Photons are the building blocks of any radio wave, including visible light and the microwaves that cellphones communicate over. Basically, if a cellphone's radio signal does not have enough photon density, it would be unable to break any chemical bonds within a human's body as it will simply lack the energy required to do so. Unfortunately, this does not seem to be the case with the microwaves that cellphones emit – higher photon density leads to more energy being released, and if Bill Bruno is correct, over time this may lead to unpredicted health-damaging consequences.

Of course, there is no need to panic because all claims remain in the realm of scientific theory for now. It will probably take many more years of testing before the dispute is settled once and for all. However, it may be a good idea to check out our article on cellphones and their link to cancer just in case the scientists are really on to something.

Come on, people. Get real!!! Do you really think anyone is going to give up or even curtail using their phone because of these idiotic ramblings?

Nope. We rely on our phones too much. Besides this is just more fear news from "experts". Just like being terrified over the Apple spyware, it's retarded. The inventor of the cell phone is still alive today free of brain tumors. He used phones before the FCC was so strict on SAR. I think we have more at hand to worry about than cellphone radiation, like our economy, government, crime rate etc.

-your computer will kill you
-your tv will kill you
-your car will kill you
-your partner will kill you

we should all hide in caves.... and there may even damage for staying too long inside a cave

And even if a legitimate report came out proving radiation was destroying our brains we can rest assured that the general public will never see it before it is bought out of existence by cell manufacturers and corporate investors alike.

It's not that big of a deal, we're blasted with radiation all the time, in higher doses than what cell phones emit. You can go outside and get doses of ultraviolet, satalite, cell, radio, x-rays, gamma rays and all other types of waves and rays as it all travels through the air. When we get stuff from Japan there's still trace amounts of radiation from when we bombed them. Chernobyl and the Japanese nuclear meltdowns, that stuff doesn't go away for a long time and when the wind blows it carries some of that radiation with it.

The only reason stuff like this takes precedence over what I mentioned is because cell phones are in the hands of everyone on the planet so it makes for an easy target. If everyone could easily get a hold of a little box that has plutonium stored in it, you can be sure that there would be more articles like this.

Someone is always going to get on a soap box and speak out against something.

i think we are all attached to our cellphone that we cant take it away by listening to some unproven sayings. there are 2 billion mobile phones and all i can see is a mere million having cancer worldwide.. oh come on

And this is coming from "theoretical" biologist? I let's say theoretically I care about a idea theoretical biologist theoretically comes up with, the fact that, theoretically speaking, a theoretical biologist knows next to nothing about cellular radio waves and how they pass through objects rather then higher power radio waves in a microwave which actively effect the molecules within the cells of living beings, HE'S A "theoretical biologist", that's a job that only exists in theory.

Haha that was fun.

I'm not a fan of "hiding in caves" but if danger exists we should know it, if tests support cellphones hazardous side - why neglect it? I' not saying we should all throw away our cellphones, but just use it wisely. Don't sleep with it next to our heads, use a headset, use a cellphone radiation protection products that will decrease the radiation (i.e.http://personalbioprotector.com/ ), I mean there are ways to avoid panic attacks regarding cellphone radiation but without false pretending they are 100% safe. To still use them and avoid their negative effects as much as possible.
