Cell Phones May Harm Blood Cells

Radiation from mobile phones may cause a massive increase in the forces that living cells exert on each other, which may be the key to answering the question of whether radiation from mobile phones causes cancer or other health problems. Many researchers fear the answer is yes, yet they have been unable to come up with any plausible way that radiation from a phone could affect, let alone harm, biological tissue, but this new finding represents a new lead. Whether or not cell phones cause harm is extremely controversial, but it seems the best option is to limit your cell phone use, especially while driving, and be sure to use a wireless headset when you do. Aside from the wireless headset, cell phone dangers can be minimized by using a wired headset and keeping the phone away from your body while it is in standby mode. Keep the phone in a purse or holster on your belt instead of in a pocket when the phone is not in use.
