New studies say that cellphone radiation will probably not kill you
Two government studies conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) have concluded that cellphone radiation will most likely not send you to your grave. But to be safe, it is wise to use common sense and take certain precautions. The studies used mice who were exposed to radio frequency radiation (RFR), like the type that is emitted from cellphones and microwave ovens. "If there is a risk, it is small," said the NTP's senior scientist Dr. John Bucher.

The mice who were exposed to RFR were in the same health as those who were not exposed, and some of those who were dosed with the radiation ended up living longer. Dr. Bucher still suggests that cellphone users reduce exposure by not jamming their handsets against their ears. The Doctor pointed out that this "dramatically reduces your radiation exposure. Cellphone radiation diminishes dramatically with distance." It is also suggested that handsets be placed some distance away when users lay down to sleep. Dr. Bucher did say that there still is a case to be made for a human to be hurt by cellphone radiation under "high exposure conditions."


Cellphone technologies are overseen in the U.S. by the SEC and the FDA. Speaking of the latter, the agency reviewed the studies and said, "The current safety limits for cellphones are acceptable for protecting the public health."

The definitiveness of that title is quite reassuring.

I think studies should focus in other things, for over a decade I hear and read such studies. At least they can change the stuff, such as what if Alexa, Google Home..etc would have any effect? I bet they won't find a thing but at least the study would be different.

Microwaves... convenient for heating something up, but useless when you start looking into what they actually do to our food and our bodies.

I quote: "cellphone radiation will most likely not send you to your grave." We are fragile creatures. If radiation won't get you then something else will. A little trivia that might make you feel uncomfortable, especially if you suffer from OCD: There are over 40,000 diseases known to mankind... And if that's not enough; There are quite literally a MILLION ways to die an unnatural death. So... Just forget about death and enjoy the life while it lasts... It doesn't matter if you're smart, dumb, rich, poor, ugly, pretty... It's all the same once you're dead... And a corpse can't cry... Okay, that's a little creepy, innit? Don't worry, Be happy! G'Day!

By using a strategy called "Cherry-picking" you can actually prove whatever you want. I don't believe in any current researches becuase of that. I heard several stories about young people (mostly in their 30s) who used to talk on the phone all day long and they ended up with glioma. Unfortunately, we live in the environment that is densely covered with different types of radiations and frequencies and that is why I will never use bluetooth headphones, I just don't want to add another type of radiation crossing my body, even though it is said to be very safe. There is simply too much of those fu***** rays flying around us.

"I don't believe in any current researches because of that." Same. The Earth is flat bro.

You know what will kill you, spendings you life savings on cell phones, instead of food.

What about Bluetooth headphones & true wireless earbuds that manufacturers are forcing users to use?

The president of Environmental Health Trust dr. Devra Lee Davis says that "“The fact is that wireless earbuds still place a microwave transmitter next to the head and as a result these microwaves penetrate into your skull and brain. Yes, they are considered ‘low level’ microwaves as they do not cook your tissue, but these very low levels have been shown to cause biological effects.” She adds that "“Research indicates not only increased brain cancer but a myriad of other effects such as effects on brain function, sleep, memory, increased headaches, hearing loss, inflammation and more.” I don't want to go the conspiracy path but this whole 'jack removing action" stinks. It seems to be just copying Apple but I believe it's something more than that.

Check statistics of brain cancer. Its not growing. If phones did cause even a tiny percentage we would have an increase in brain cancer. Which is not happening. Ye it might not be good, but it definitely does not cause cancer. If it did in last decade it would skyrocket brain cancer.
