Did you know that the use of cell phones can cause serious damage to your brain? Health studies have proved that constant use of cellular phones can result in brain tumor. The study was basically focused on three types of tumors and brain cancer in the parotid gland. It was found that cancer in this gland increased after a decade or more of heavy mobile usage.
According to experts, when a connection is established with a cell phone and cell phone tower, it results in the creation of electromagnetic radiation. Since we always hold the phone against our ear while talking, this radiation tends to penetrate in the brain. However, the risk of getting brain cancer is more in people who make heavy use of this device. Based on reports, very soon the World Health Organization will also announce that few types of brain cancer and tumors can be caused due to long term use of cell phones. Between the years 2000 to 2004, a study was conducted in 13 countries on over 12,800 people and it was concluded that if an individual uses mobile phones continuously for 10 years or more, brain tumor risks increase to a great extent. Even though some experts believe that there is no definitive result on the effects of radiofrequency radiation on human brain, it is essential to take the necessary precautions. This is the reason why the idea of reducing cell phone usage especially among children should be strictly followed. There is no doubt that this is a very important device but it will be better if it is used only in times of emergency.
The risk of getting acoustic neuroma, a benign tumor increased by 140% due to the use of cell phone on the same side for a long time. The risk of giloma, a type of cancer also increases by 100% if an individual talks on the cell phone on the same side of the ear for a long duration. Even though companies are coming up with latest mobile phones everyday, it will be the responsibility of cell phone users to reduce the use of this device for health purposes.
