The cellular phone industry was born in the early 1980s,when communications technology that had been developed for the Department of Defence in USA was put into commerce by companies focusing on profit.This group,with big ideas but limited resources,pressured USA's government regulatory agencies-particularly the food and drug administration (FDA)-to allow cell phones to be sold without pre-market testing.

Among the known effects discovered by scientists that are caused by cell phone radiations are;
damaging the DNA,break down the brain's defenses,and reduce sperm count while increasing memory loss,the risk of Alzheimer's diseases, and even cancer.The growing brains of children make them especially vulnerable.



Effect on the brain

Cell phones emit radio-frequency energy (radio waves), a form of non-ionizing radiation. Tissues nearest to where the phone is held can absorb this energy. The latest study by the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority in Finland - the home of mobile phone giant Nokia - has found that one hour of mobile radiation triggered potentially harmful changes in human cells.

The radiation made the cells in blood vessel walls shrink - allowing potentially harmful substances in the blood to 'leak' into the brain.

Repeated exposure, the study found, could make the blood-brain barrier more permeable, leading to increased brain damage.

It concluded: 'Repeated occurrences of these events on a daily basis, over a long period of time, could become a health hazard due to possible accumulation of brain tissue damage.'


Effect on Sperms

 A study conducted by Ohio's Cleveland Clinic found that the sperm counts of cell phone users --defined as four hours a day or more--were 40 percent lower than those who use cell phone infrequently or not at all.

The research examined 361 men who were about to begin fertility treatment and were having their sperm analyzed for that purpose.

In addition to having lower sperm counts, the researchers found, the quality of the sperm of heavy cell-phone users was also diminished. Men who were moderate cell phone users also saw a loss is sperm count, although the lowered levels were less dramatic.

Dr. Ashok Agarwal, who led the research, told The Times of London that he believed the electromagnetic fields generated by cell phones were responsible for the diminished sperm count.


 Tips on how you can reduce these effects

   -Buy a Low Radiation Cell Phone

   -Use a Headset or speaker

   -Listen More Talk Less-More Radiation is generated while broadcasting

   -Hold your cell phone away from your body when using (Headset,Speaker phone) and when in storage-keep in a purse or away from you not in a pocket or next to you.

   -Choose texting over talking when possible

   -When signal reception is poor stay off the phone-more radio-frequency is needed in low signal

   -Limit your Children's exposure-young bodies absorb more radiation.

   -Skip Radiation Shields-these don't work to protect you they actually cause your phone to emit more Radio-frequency due to the low connection quality
