Cell Phones Good or Bad

Posted on: September 16, 2009

A recent argument has come out on whether or not cell phones radiation is a contributer to cancer.  Although it is not conclusive on whether it does or doesn’t, doctors are suggesting we should try to limit the time we have a cell phone pressed against our body. Dr. John Bucher, associate director of the National Toxicology Program at the National Institutes of Health, stated “children have a configuration of their skull that does allow penetration of cell-phone radiation.”  However, he did not state whether or not cell phones contribute to cancer.  On the other side, Dr. Siegal Sadetzki of Tel Aviv University stated that early studies are “inconclusive but those done on subjects after 10 years of cell-phone use were showing higher incidences of tumors and other problems.”  Doctor Dr. Sadetzki, feels that with all the time that people hold there phones to the head, the excessive amounts of radiation may contribute to tumors on the salivary glands.  A recent article has also been released listing the cell phones that put out the most radiation. The top ten phones that relese the most radiation are 1.Motorola MOTO VU204, 2.T-Mobile myTouch 3G 3.Kyocera Jax S1300 4.Blacrazr_phone-1kberry Curve 8330 5.Motorola W385  6.T-Mobile Shadow 7.Motorola C290 8.Motorola i335 9.Motorola MOTO VE240 10.Blackberry Bold 9000, so watch out for these phones. Knowing this information, people should try to limit the amount of time they spend with their head to the phone in order to try to limit the amount of radiation that they come in contact with.
