Cell Phone Radiation Causes Cancer

2016 What if you could leave the battery out of the equation entirely?
That's just what the University of Washington's Sensor Lab has done. Researchers there created the WISP, or Wireless Identification and Sensing Platform: a combination sensor and computing chip that doesn't need a battery or a wired power source to operate. Instead, it sucks in radio waves emitted from a standard, off-the-shelf RFID reader the same technology that retail shops use to deter shoplifters and converts them into electricity. The WISP isn't designed to compete with the chips in your smartphone or your laptop. It has about the same clock speed as the processor in a Fitbit and similar functionality, including embedded accelerometers and temperature sensors.



2015 "The various agencies setting safety standards have failed to impose sufficient guidelines to protect the general public, particularly children who are more vulnerable to the effects of EMF." Scores of Scientists Raise Alarm About the Long-Term Health Effects of Cellphones Children in particular may be vulnerable.

Use Of Cellphones Linked With Brain Cancer In Massive Study By Rebecca Zamon Nov 12 2014 RISK 3x higher after 25 years of use
A new study out of Sweden indicates that talking on cellphones and even cordless phones can be related to a certain form of brain cancer. The study, published in the journal Pathophysiology in October, analyzed the results of 1,498 cases of people with malignant brain tumors and 3,530 controls to determine whether phone use had any effect on their cancer. In their findings, it appeared that the longer a person used a cell or cordless phone, the more likely they were to get become gliomas, a type of tumor found in the brain or spinal cord that is malignant in 80 per cent of cases, according to WebMD. "The risk is three times higher after 25 years of use. We can see this clearly," the study's lead researcher, Dr. Lennart Hardell, told Reuters. Those who had only been using a cell or cordless phone for less than a year were at the least amount of risk, while those who used their phone on the same side of the body (or "ipsilaterally") for many years had the highest odds for brain cancer. radiation emitted by the phones The cause for concern with cellphones comes from the radiofrequency energy, a type of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the phones, explains the Cell Phones and Cancer Risk National Cancer Institute. These waves can then be absorbed by the tissues of the brain, and it is not yet understood how this may or may not affect the development of cancer. Dr. Gabriel Zada, a neurosurgeon in California, noted to Reuters that children could be particularly at risk due to having smaller heads, thinner skulls and higher brain conductivity. Earlier this year, a study from France found similar results about cellphone use and glioma, though the results in that study showed tumours developing on the opposite side of the brain, reported The Atlantic's The Wire.World Health Organization As of October, the International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified cellphones as "possibly carcinogenic," according to the World Health Organization, which is planning for a further study into health outcomes from phones by 2016.


Radio Frequency (RF) Energy government's requirements for exposure to radio waves. FCC ID Search Form have your product code:

*In the United States and Canada, the SAR limit for mobile phones used by the public is 1.6 watts/kg (W/kg) averaged over one gram of tissue. The standard incorporates a substantial margin of safety to give additional
protection for the public and to account for any variations in measurements.

The FCC is used as a reference to "approve" certain electronics. Each item that is approved through the FCC, keyboards on computers in particular, are equipped with a RF chip that is designed to mine and store data from your console and to recognize key word. Uou can put in your pc's unique FCC id and get internal photos of your computer and the chip.They are watching and listening to you. FCC #define DEF_Si3035 1 (FCC based chipset)

Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) is the codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government. It is divided into 50 titles that represent broad areas subject to Federal regulation. Each
volume of the CFR is updated once each calendar year and is issued on a quarterly basis.

Ban mobile phones and wireless networks in schools, say European leaders. Mobile phones and computers with wireless internet connections pose a risk to human health and should be banned from schools, a powerful European body has ruled. 5/14/11

Study Shows Electrical Fields Influence Brain Activity

San Francisco Passes Cellphone Radiation Law Under the law, retailers will be required to post materials — in at least 11-point type — next to phones, listing their specific absorption rate, which is the amount of radio waves absorbed into the cellphone user's body tissue. These so-called SAR rates can vary from phone to phone, but all phones sold in the United States must have a SAR rate no greater than 1.6 watts per kilogram, according to the Federal Communications Commission, which regulates the $190 billion wireless industry.

Study Suggests Cell Phone-Salivary Gland Cancer Link
First study to look at long-term cell phone users February 19, 2008

Before a cell phone can be put on the U.S. market, it has to live up to a lot of federal regulations and one of them is the maximum SAR level.  
1.6 W/kg maximum, confirmed by the Federal Communications Commission "The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg)." 



Highest Cell Phone Radiation vs. Lowest Radiation
We start with a list of the top rated cell phones and we keep only the cell phones which fit one of these two situation:

  • Infertility and Cell Phone Usage
    "Anytime minutes" may not be the only thing that decreases with prolonged cell phone usage. According to a study presented at the 62nd annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, sperm count and quality may as well. The study, of 361 men undergoing evaluation for infertility, found that the more time men spent on their cell phones each day, the unhealthier their sperm. Specifically, men who spent more than four hours a day on their cell phones had lower sperm counts, less motile sperm and more irregularly shaped sperm than men who didn't use cell phones.
  • 2003 Scientists have found the first evidence linking brain cancer with mobile phone use. It was found that users who spend more than an hour a day talking on a mobile phone have a close to one-third higher risk of developing a rare form of brain tumor. Most frequently, the cancers were found on the side of the head that the user held the phone up to. The association was found with digital mobile phones, old-style analogue mobile phones and digital enhanced cordless phones. Although radiation from mobile phones has been shown to alter the brain and affect memory, past studies have found no evidence of a link between brain cancer and mobile phone use.
    In the current study, researchers looked at the medical records of 1,600 patients with tumors who had used mobile phones for up to 10 years before diagnosis. They found that the more mobile phones were used, and the more years they were used, the higher the risk of brain tumors. Further, spending more than an hour on a mobile phone per day increased the risk of acoustic neuroma, a type of tumor, by some 30 percent. This type of tumor, usually curable by surgery, can occur in a nerve in the brain and lead to deafness in one ear. Incidences of this type of cancer, though rare, have increased from one tumor per 100,000 people in 1980 to one per 80,000 today. Researchers say that the findings appear to show a link, but further studies are needed to confirm the results. [source]
