The Cancer Contender
As society is ever changing, one “accessory” that is here to stay is our cell phone. Once attached at our hip, it is usually now attached to our ears. You can’t walk very far without seeing a passing stranger talking incessantly on her cell phone.
Although it is convenient, cell phone radio waves may have a huge affect on the quality of not just our skin, but our health. In an article, written by Sue Mueller of Foodconsumer.org, Mueller writes that a study in Finland showed that radio frequency could be a contributor of altered proteins in our skin. Additionally, according to BioMedCentral.com, “radio waves could also be a factor of sleep disorders, headaches, or allergy-like symptoms.” Cancer is the big discussion after all. So many studies are underway to determine the affects of radio waves on skin and its ability to cause cancer.
Although there does not seem to be enough sufficient proof that cell phone radio waves are the main cause all of these physiological concerns, it does seem to make sense that issues would arise from our need to be on our tellys 24/7.
It doesn’t seem that the outcome is good either way. Radio waves, TV waves, Cell waves…they all could be main contenders in our battle with Cancer and other health issues.
Until we have some invention that prevents radio waves from accessing the proteins and cells in our bodies, we certainly shouldn’t brush this under the rug. Be aware of how often you are on the phone. Turn it off when you can do without it. Spend more time with family and friends and leave the phone at home.
