Radiations in mobile phones

Nowadays mobile phones are become a third hand in our everyday life. We can’t live without them for even a minute. It is a useful thing which helps in all ways like to take photo, video, educational purposes, playing games, entertainment, calendar, calculator, contacts, calling, texting etc.

But every technology as pros and cons we must admit it but we must be alert and precaution about the cons and stay healthy. A study says that it exposes the cancer inducing radiations.

The electromagnetic radiation in mobile phones:

There are two types of electromagnetic radiations. They are,

  1. ionizing
  2. non-ionizing

Ionizing – ionizing is the high frequency and high energy (ex: cosmic rays, x-rays, etc.)

Non-ionizing – Non-ionizing means low frequency and low energy (example: power frequency, radio frequency, etc.)

The radiation emitted by the cellphones are called non-ionizing radiations which is used to enable wireless options and network connections like Wi-Fi, mobile data. The radiation will be intensified while you are in phone calls for a long. Bodies which are nearer to these radiations will absorbs this energy. It can develop cancer cells afflicted with breast cancer and a case study proves that the cancerous cells are formed up in the shapes of mobile phones.

Study: A woman examined for cancer, the shocking news is actually it is in the shape of her cell phones, it was a quite strange that she said she used to keep her phone into the bra for a long time.

And another study in 2009 proves that the pelvic bone density was reduced on the sides in 150 men who have their mobiles attached to the belt or pant pocket for 15 hours per day for around 6 years.

All mobiles phones are dangerous but some emits more radiations which cause severe health issues, they are,

The 10 Worst Cell Phones emits harmful radiations are,

The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is issued by FCC to provide guidelines to measure the radiation in tissue and its uses in the thermal effects of phone radiations. And fixed the allowed radiation is 1.6watts for the energy absorbed per kg of the body mass index.

Yet, the following phones are close to this limit:

Huawei Vitria – SAR 1.49

ZTE Source – SAR 1.41

ZTE Warp 4G – SAR 1.41

BlackBerry Z10 – SAR 1.42

BlackBerry Z30 – SAR 1.41

Alcatel One Touch Evolve – SAR 1.49

Kyocera Hydro Edge – SAR 1.48

Kyocera Kona – SAR 1.45

Kyocera Hydro XTRM – SAR 1.44

Motorola Droid Maxx – SAR 1.54

Motorola Droid Ultra – SAR 1.54

Motorola Moto E – SAR 1.5

Precaution measures:

You should avoid using your phones, if it is in the group above. It exposes you to increase your radiation each and every time you use it.

And also have limited active phone calls and don’t use it in a weak connection or with low charge since it emits higher radiation and turn it off when not using it.

Don’t carry it with you always like pockets, belt clips or bra because it may cause seriously severe effects. It must be at least some inches away from the body.

Use speakers or a shielded headsets to use your phones and please keep away your phones from children because the radiations will cause hyperactivity, emotional issues, imbalance growth, behavior less etc.

You can’t completely stop using mobile phones since it has more usefulness, don’t use a lot be precautionary and stay healthier.
