Can mobile phones cause cancer?

There is no strong or consistent evidence that mobile phone use increases the risk of getting brain cancer or other head tumors.

The United States National Cancer Institute points out that “Radiofrequency energy, unlike ionizing radiation, does not cause DNA damage that can lead to cancer.

Does your phone give off radiation?

Why is there concern that cell phones may cause cancer or other health problems? Cell phones emit radiofrequency radiation (radio waves), a form of non-ionizing radiation, from their antennas. Parts of the body nearest to the antenna can absorb this energy. The number of cell phone users has increased rapidly.

What are the risks of using a mobile phone?

Medical researchers continue to examine any health risks associated with mobile phone use. Research has focused on germs, traffic accidents, cancer, electromagnetic radiation, and health effects such as changes in brain activity and sleep patterns.

How does cell phone radiation affect humans?

Mobile phones emit radiofrequency energy, a form of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation, which can be absorbed by tissues close to the phone. Scientists have reported adverse health effects of using mobile phones including changes in brain activity, reaction times, and sleep patterns.
