Does cell phones cause tumour?

We’re swimming in a sea of electromagnetic radiation produced by electrical appliances and other technologies everyday, that are part of modern life.

Your phone sends radiofrequency, or RF, waves from its antenna to nearby cell towers, and receives RF waves to its antenna from cell towers when you make a call or text or use data. The frequency of a cell phone’s RF waves falls between those emitted by FM radios and those from microwave ovens, all of which are considered “non-ionizing” forms of radiation.

That means that unlike radiation from a nuclear explosion, the radiation from your phone does not carry enough energy to directly break or alter your DNA, which is one way that cancer can occur. FM radios and microwaves don’t harm us because they aren’t held close to your head when in use and because microwave ovens have shielding that offers protection.

Many studies were done and the results were not accurate. As of now there are more mobile phones than the total humans on our planet, which means the rate of tumour should increase as the cell phones are increasing, but it isn’t. 

In my view, cellphones are not that harmfull. Checkout my previous article on Radiation here (Most radioactive places on earth).

What’s Radioactivity? What’s are the most RADIOACTIVE places on Earth?

We experience little amount of Ionizing radiation all the time. Even, in banana some of the potassium is Radioactive. So, we are exposed to very little amount of radioactivity that is 0.1 micro sieverts of radiation. Hey don’t worry that does no harm, anything greater than 2 sieverts at once probably kills, in a short time . Ok let’s go further learning, what radioactivity actually is?

In radioactive electromagnetic radiation are emitted from the nucleus. The most common forms of radiation emitted are alpha (a), beta (b), and gamma (g) radiation. Nuclear radiation occurs in other forms, including the emission of protons or neutrons or spontaneous fission of a massive nucleus.

An unstable nucleus will decompose spontaneously, or decay, into a more stable configuration but will do so only in a few specific ways by emitting certain particles or certain forms of electromagnetic energy. Radioactive decay is a property of several naturally occurring elements as well as of artificially produced isotopes of the elements. The Radioactivity is measured in “SIEVERTS”.

The above video shows the most radioactive places on earth. So, a smokers lungs receives the highest radiation, that is 160,000 microsieverts per year.
