Mobile phone use is so widespread (it expected in 2013 to2016 are about 4.01to 4.61 billion mobile phone users), public concerns that arepossible health effects areas because of mobile phones that take a lot ofcoverage in the media.
Because so many people use mobile phones for e.g. (medicalresearchers are worried that any associated health risks), even small ones useof a mobile phone could cause major public health problems. Mobile phonescommunicate with their base station using (RF) which means radio frequency radiation.If RF radiation is high enough, it means it has a thermal effect, which increasesbody temperature. These are concerns that the low levels of RF radiationemitted by mobile phones could cause health disease for e.g. (Heart disease andkidney failure).
A study in Europe by European Union-Funded group named asINTERPHONE shows us an increase in the risk of developing glioma (a malignantbrain cancer) in people who used a mobile phone for 50 minutes per a day over12 years. The radiation of cell phone can also cause to penetrate our bodiesand can cause us cancer. The knowledge of cell phone radiation rising danger ofcancer was supported by two other studies. The studies complete the report ofthe INTERPHONE. And showed that cell phone radiation enhanced the potential tocause cancer effect of chemicals. This evidence indicates by the Internationalagency for research on cancer that mobile phone radiation might indeed be to theformation of cancer or even produce malignant tumors in humans.A study in Department of Education, Sindh, Karachi, andIslamabad show that mobile phones give off harmful radiation which effects tohuman health because such type of radiation are available everyone and theirexistence cannot be felt.
This radiation also penetrates the body and theyaffect the cell structure and the DNA.These different type of radiations arebeing used for connecting mobile phone devices with each other and each type ofradiation having own frequency and wavelength, the frequency mostly ranges from 3 kHz to 300GHz. There are a number of cases of mobile phone devices such as cell phones,wireless router, tablet PC, cell telephone tower, wireless handfree, Bluetooth device, audio player, laptop connected to thewireless router (Wi-Fi). These devices give off dangerous radiations which cancontribute too many harmful diseases such as Brain Tumor, and Ear Hearingproblem effect on the foetus, and can also cause us mental flagging,Parkinson’s disease, asthma, Heart trouble, insomnia, high blood pressure,leukemia, birth defects, Immune system, and rheumatoid arthritis. Radiationsare also causes of some indications which are: a headache, sleep disruption,tiredness, and so on DNA damage can also happen because the wireless radiationwhich given off by the cell phone devices during the sending and receivingprocess of the data which is broken down by this survey-based study. Questionnaire;this examination contains some of the diseases which are induced by theseradiations like a brain tumor and the ear hearing impairment. A study from Punjab healthdepartment is that electrical andmagnetic fields (EMFs), including electromagnetic radioactivity, are all overthese days, and probabilities are it’s taking a major toll on your health.
Digitaldevices with your mobile phone, laptop, tablet, and wearable tech like theApple Watch all produce a near-continuous source of unnoticed pollution thatcan be stressful and poisonous to your cells. Invisibleareas of energyoften discussed as radiation that is associated with the use of electricalpower and several forms of natural and man-madelighting.The solutionto this problem is that to Get a hands-free set and use it.
Making calls via an earphoneand microphone will radically reduce the radiation you absorb while talking.Talk on speakerphone. Lower your phone’s signal, the harder it has to work to jointo the nearest tower – so fewer bars on your phone means more radiation whiletalking. Avoiding talks in lifts, basements, and tunnels will limit your exposure.Talk less. If mobiles are unsafe, it won’t be from any one-off dose ofradiation but from the increasing effect of using it every day, year in, yearout.
Using text, email or other messaging services instead of making that callmight be the simplest way of decreasing your exposure. Don’t sleep with your cellphone inches away. The same general rules apply as for speakerphone calls:putting your mobile even a small distance further away will have a large effecton any radiation. It’s possible to mean highlighting that cancer risks fromphones are still unconfirmed.Mypersonal reflection before this research was that mobile phone is a goodelectronic device everyone had to use it but are this research mobile phone isa bad thing we stop using it, it has Harmfuleffects like (cancer, brain cancer, and heart disease).References-:· https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_phone_radiation_and_health· https://www.iarc.fr/· http://www.who.int/countries/pak/en/· https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/cell-phone-radiation/
