Mobile phone and human health.

Our topic of interest today is the effect of mobile phone radiation on human body. Mobile phones use electromagnetic radiation in the microwave range maybe between 450-2100MHz and from a 2007 European Commission Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) shows that the exposure to such radiation can cause numerous diseases such as cancer in humans. It is worthy to note that the rate at which energy is absorbed by the human body is measured by specific absorption rate and its limit is marked at 1.6 W/kg.

Apart from causing cancers in human body, studies have shown that Electromagnetic  Radiation from mobile phones are linked to development of brain tumors, genetic damage and other related cases. It is actually not true if You are told that the usage of mobile phones in whatever manner can guarantee your safety but rather it will reduce the effect of the Electromagnetic radiation on your bod to a minimal rate even the WHO can attest to that. Since we have found ourselves in this condition and it has become part of us to carry phones about, it is advised that we shouldn't keep our mobile phones closer to us while asleep and also as for the Men, we should not carry our phones in the front pockets but putting it at the back pocket can be okay. Another way of reducing the effect of Electromagnetic radiation of our mobile phones especially while answering phone calls is by using an earpiece. If we start practicing the safety measures highlighted above, it will go a long way of reducing the effect of the radiation and mind you different mobile phones releases different radiations and you never can tell whether the one you are using has higher wave.
