Cell (phones) Can Cause Cancer

The title may seem like something you would see on a conspiracy website...but its true. Recently the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) concluded a study showing the radiation from cell phone use can cause brain cancer. The study was conducted by numerous different scientists and doctors from across the globe. They classify cell-phones in the same category as lead, chloroform, and carbon monoxide. The phones act like miniature microwave ovens causing the cells to rapidly duplicate leading to tumors.

There's a video on youtube showing how strong the radiation from a cell phone is. They put three cell phones in a triangle around a kernel of popcorn and make them ring. I few seconds later the kernel pops. Think about it.. if the phone is strong enough to pop popcorn... imagine what its doing to your brain.

This doesn't mean you need to throw away your cell phone and it doesn't mean that you're going to get cancer from having it against your ears every once in awhile. What it does mean is that you need to use a phone mic/headset when talking on the phone. What the study shows is that having the cell phone against your ear allows the radiation to damage the brain causing the tumors. So if you keep the phone a foot (30 centimeters) away from your head at all times it won't have the damaging effect.

In a different study some scientist found that the same cell phone radiation effects a persons bone density. Meaning if you keep the phone in your pants pocket all the time it will soon weaken your bones. Its better to keep it in a coat bag, backpack, or somewhere away from the body...until cell phone makers lower the radiation levels. Check the videos below for more information.
