Report finds that people can be allergic to cell phones
There have been many stories pointing out the negative effects that cell phones have on the human body – from the accusations of it causing brain cancer to other health issues, cell phones are intricate pieces of technology that constantly output cellular waves. According to a new report, it seems like it can even cause some people to become allergic to the radio waves that are coming out of it – approximately 250,000 people in Sweden were diagnosed to be allergic. The condition known as electro-hypersensitivity clearly points to some physical reactions some people go through when they are exposed – such as dizziness, nausea, headaches, breathing problems, heart, palpitations, and fainting. Not to just point all the fingers at cell phones, other electronic devices like computers and televisions can produce electromagnetic radiation as well. So the next time someone actually tells you that they're allergic to cell phones, you might want to take it seriously as opposed to laughing it off.
