Cell Phones Linked To Cancer Risk

Cell phones

Do cell phones really cause cancer? Well, maybe. Some studies say that they do and other studies say that they don’t.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a warning saying that children especially are susceptible to the electromagnetic radiation released by these devices. Their organs are still developing and can be damaged very easily, so the use of cell phones by them should be limited as much as possible.

For adults, the cell phone should be kept as far away from the body as possible and a hands-free headset should be used, or the speakerphone should be employed, so that the phone is not held right next to the head. The complete WHO findings will not be released for two years, when they can be better studied as a determination of whether the phones really do pose a brain cancer risk.
