Do Cell Phones Cause Brain Tumors?
For years, the makers of cell phones and the providers of cell phone service have denied any connection between cell phone usage and radiation entering the brain and damaging brain tissue.
Do I Believe Cell Phones Will Lead To Brain Tumors?
Yes, I do believe that cell phone usage will lead to brain tumors in some people. This is my personal belief, and my personal theory. For years, I’ve been told by cell phone companies that there is no danger. I remember how cigarette manufacturers, and their legal teams, also assured us that there was no provable link between cigarette smoking and cancer and heart disease.
Children and Cell Phones
I am happy that articles are finally being published that say children should not use cell phones. Researchers are now saying that the radiation from cell phones can have a negative effect on the not-yet-fully-developed brains of children.
I still see mothers handing their cell phones to their children. I also still see too many teens with cell phones. I don’t wish to take away social necessities, but more than that, I don’t want to see an entire generation lose brain cells and not develop to their fullest potential. (Yes, there are reasons other than cell phones that can cause the same negative outcome of not developing to one’s highest potential.)
Adults and Cell Phone Radiation to the Brain
So far, I’ve not seen articles warning adults to reduce the time they spend holding a radiation-beaming unit to their skulls in order to reduce the amount of radiation warming the brain on the other side of the skull. Why has it taken so long for this to become an issue?
Does Radiation From Cell Phones Damage Brain Cells?
I personally believe that holding a cell phone next to one’s head for hours a day will cause damage to the brain. I have believed there is a cell phone : brain tumor link for almost ten years now.
I am greatly concerned about this country, and people around the world. I am concerned that cell phone users worldwide will eventually develop brain damage from repeated, self-administered radiation to the brain.
It is my ongoing goal to do what I need to to keep my brain healthy. That includes keeping cell phones away from my head except on rare occasions.
