Government Urged to Research Cell Phone Radiation Effects

Article Comments  52  

Jan 18, 2008, 5:08 PM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

A report from the National Research Council beseeches for more studies into the health effects of cell phone radiation on the human body. The report points out that much of the current research available was conducted on healthy adults. It spells out the need for more information regarding the specific absorption rates for children, pregnant women and fetuses, which absorb radiation differently from adults. Because many of the original tests were also conducted with rod-like exterior antennas, the report notes that certain tests need to be redone now that many phones--and laptops--have internal antennas that expose different parts of the body to radiation.

You're More Likely to Get Radiation From Radon in Your House

Are we really revisiting this issue AGAIN? Rolling Eyes Yeeesh! Don't the conspiracy theory nuts ever admit defeat?

Cell phones are such low powered devices that you're more likely to be affected by the microwave or bricks in your home.

Why don't they just all eat a granola bar with tofu spread and leave us all alone?

Because granola bars and tofu spread will probably be proven to cause cancer too, and then they're screwed.

Plooky has a decent point, and just because you are paranoid does not mean that they are not out to get you. Smile

The problem with all of this research is that we are constantly exposed to all sorts of radiation (TV,Radio) at much higher levels. We ...

I think it's a great idea

The whole point of research is to find out something. The point of research on previously researched topics is to verify that the previous findings are true and that things haven't changed.

With the proliferation of cell phones being on your body 24/7, and the fact that nearly everyone has one nowadays, I think more research is a great idea. If it still says cell phones are perfectly safe? Even better!
Agreed, however I think it's clear that industry sponsored research can not be trusted to be neutral.

and the sun

We should also look into radiation from the sun... That practically gives off radiation on all frequencies!

You're not too far off, here.

Look at all the reporting being done these days on the dama...

Bluetooth question

Maybe this is a stupid question but I am going to ask it anyway.

Is Bluetooth a safe alternative if you do believe the radiation on your cell phone will have an effects on your health, or would a corded headset be the way to go?

I'm not saying that cell phones emit bad radiation or anything, but I am just curious if anyone knows about this at all. Thanks.
Bluetooth transmits at a lower power and with a higher frequency than cell phones - if I'm not mistaken.

It is a source of RF energy, so a corded headset would remove that.

jrfdsf did have a point that there is background "noise" and radiation t...
