(Natural News) In 2015, New York Times writer Nick Bilton wrote an article entitled “The Health Concerns in Wearable Tech,” warning the public that devices like smartphones and Apple Watches emit a low-level radiation which has been linked to cancer, brain tumors and other problems when worn close to the body for extended periods. His article was based on a press release issued by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in May of 2011, which warned, “The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer1, associated with wireless phone use.”

Bilton was not praised for his public health warning; in fact, the mainstream media attacked him, with many calling for his dismissal from the Times.

The truth is, there is ample evidence that radiofrequency electromagnetic fields emitted by cell phones and ot.... This has just been reinforced yet again, in a document released by the California Department of Public Health, entitled simply “Cell Phones and Health.”

The Department has been sitting on the document, which has been revised several times, for the past seven years, refusing to make it public. It was only when Joel Moskowitz, director of the Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health, sued the Department last year, and the judge indicated that she would order the release of the document, that the Department made it public.

The document states clearly, “Health officials are concerned about possible health effects from cell phone EMFs because some recent studies suggest that long-term cell phone use may increase the risk of brain cancer and other health problems.” [Emphasis added]

It also notes that studies have found that people diagnosed with certain forms of brain cancer are more likely to have used cellphones in the preceding decade and that the cancers usually occurred on the side of the head that their cellphones were most often used on. It adds, “These studies suggest that regular cell phone use increases the risk of developing some kinds of brain cancer.” (RELATED: Read more about how cell phones are a ticking time-bomb when it comes to cancer here.)

The use of cell phones clearly carries serious health risks, but with modern society so dependent on them, it is unrealistic to think that people will be able to totally end their use. It is, therefore, important to know how to utilize this technology in the safest possible way.

An earlier Natural News article provided several tips on how to protect yourself from cell phone radiation, including:

  1. Reduce the amount of time you spend talking on your cell phone, keeping in mind that every 2-minute phone call disrupts brain activity for up to an hour.
  2. Send text messages rather than making phone calls.
  3. Replace your cell phone with one that emits less radiation. A list of suggestions can be found here.
  4. The jury is still out on whether or not they will really be less damaging in the long-term, but it still might be worth using a headset or speaker rather than talking directly on your cell phone.
  5. Avoid using your cell phone in elevators or other metal enclosures, including your car, as more power is needed to connect the call, emitting more radiation in the process.
  6. A similar problem arises when your cell phone’s battery is low, so charge it before you use it.
  7. If you have to use your phone directly without a headset or speaker, wait until the person you’re calling actually answers before putting it to your ear.

So, the reality is that you probably have to use a cell phone, but by limiting its use and applying the suggestions above, you can try to make the process less damaging to your health.

The reality is that until recently no one needed to use a cellphone and nor do they now unless required for work.

The REAL consequences have not even been touched on yet and won't be known for a generation but it can be foreseen that as we know these forces are destructive on living tissue the only unknown is the level of harm that will be caused.

Put it this way, we did not get here because of instantaneous mobile communication, but we could be leaving here because of it, and our gallant misplaced eagerness to be always part of the experiment.

Luckily our dwindling descendants can stay in touch and blame it all on Fuckedyoushima... 

so true

What's a cellphone?

Actually this article has sensible advice for those who use these infernal gadgets.

Aparentley not what I thought it was when first I heard of it...

I think its a more flash version of a "wan key Tal key" 

Dat true Martin but if anyone gave a shit it wouldn't be a problem...

Humanity is in thrall to the trance of "technology". I'm thinking more and more that Roger was right:
