Cell Phones and Cancer How to Decrease Radiation Exposure **.**. ****........*.. ..... . We don't want to believe that our new toys to which we are so attached-- and which bring in enormous profits- could also cause our demise or that of our children. But science is not about belief. - David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD, 1951-2011, author who died of a cell-phone induced brain tumor. % of US Population with Cells 0.03 13 38 69 96 1990 1995 Total Cell Minutes Used by US 2000 2005 2010 37.8 B 258.8 B 1.5 T 2.2 T Cell phones emit low levels of microwave radiation, also called radiofrequency energy or radio waves, which are a form of non-ionizing radiation. Phones are only tested next to the head and at the hip and are not tested as they are commonly used, i.e., in the pockets Radiation Released from Phones Each cell phone is measured by units of SAR (Specific Absorption Rate). The higher the rate, the farther the phone should be held from the body. Here are two of the most widely used phone's recommended distances: The Apple iPhone 4 : 0.67 in The Blackberry Bold : 0.98 in The 10 "Hottest" Cell Phones 1. Blackberry 8820 Radiation: 1.58 SAR 2. Motorola i880 Radiation: 1.57 SAR 3. Palm Pixi Radiation: 1.56 SAR 4. Motorola MOTO Ve44o Radiation: 1.56 SAR 5. Motorola i335 Radiation: 1.55 SAR ....|| 6. Motorola Vu204 Radiation: 1.55 SAR mll 7. Blackberry 8703e Radiation: 1.55 SAR 8. Kyocera Jax S1300 Radiation: 1.55 SAR 9. HTC Magic Radiation: 1.55 SAR 10. Blackberry Bold 9700 Radiation: 1.55 SAR 8 Steps for Reducing Radiation Step 1: Step 2: Low Radiation Use a Phone Headset ************** * Radiation is emitted when you talk, but not while you listen. Listening simply reduces exposure. Step 3: Use Speaker Step 4: SMS Text Over Phone Talking When the signal is low, your phone emits radiation to get a stronger signal. Step 5: No Signal? Step 6: Hold phone No Phone at a distance Radiation shields Step 8: Gaming on cell? Disconnect from wireless. Step 7: Radiation produce a lower con- nection. Thus, more radiation is emitted. shields make it worse Are the Dangers Real? According to Dr. Devra Davis in her book Disconnect, cell phone radiation is a national emergency. Stunningly, the most popular gadget of our age has now been shown to damage DNA, break down the brain's defenses, and reduce sperm count while increasing memory loss, the risk of Alzheimer's disease, and even cancer. The growing brains t atect of children make them especially vulnerable. And half of the world's five billion cell phones are used by people under twenty. Visit www.ehtrust.org for more information.
