Why should we Use Cell Phones in moderation?

Updated on February 4, 2015

There are millions of cell phone users in the world today . Cell phones use microwave radiation to communicate between two cellphones,This microwave radiation have a negative impact on our health to which we are not aware off .Everything used in moderation has its benefits but if it crosses the limit it has a bad impact on our health ,this is what ,is happening with cellphones today,let alone elders even children posses cellphone now a days .The explosion of cell phone usage in the last few decades has been astounding,only in few years a substantial proportion of the world’s population has taken to this new technology

The Cell phone transmits and receives Radio Frequency signals communication. These signals from cell phone fall within the microwave part of the electromagnetic spectrum,and are referred as microwave radiation or electromagnetic radiation.There are Base Stations that relay signals for communication. Both ,the cell phone and the base stations emit microwave radiation.Microwave radiation emitted from cell phones and base stations have a negative impact on our health,

These waves are harmful to humans, the most known harmful effect is heating eg: warming up your food in the microwave is an example of heating through microwaves.
Though safety standards have been raised to put a limit to these radiation exposure from cell phones as well as  base stations.Yet these safety standards are limited and do not protect your health from such harmful rays .
At present there is no federally mandated radio frequency exposure standard.The Federal Communications Commission should take a big step and make it mandatory to issue warning tags when cell phones are sold so that it may reach the masses easily and the use of the product could be moderated and put to proper use rather than misusing the facility for gossips.

The FCC do have a standard which explains the maximum Radio Frequency allowed to be absorbed through the human head while using a cell phone device,It's measured through a value called the Specific Absorption Rate or in short "SAR".The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones SAR level  of 1.6 watts per kilogram .that's the moderation rate which should be followed .However,This safety standards simply protect one from the heating effect of the microwave radiation or The thermal effect. If it does not happen to cause a temperature rise in one's head of more than one degree, the microwave exposure is presumed to be safe. thus the conclusion is that there cannot be a cell damage without heating of the device. thus without cell phone damage, there is no risk to health.
All this stands no value if we take into consideration what the recent researchers say:Their study show that non-heating, or non-thermal, microwave radiation has a profoundly negative effect on the human body.
Prof.Salford et al, established for the first time an evidence for neurological damage caused by non-thermal microwave exposure.
Dr G.J Hyland, an authority on the potential health effects of non-thermal microwave radiation declears that:there is no justification for claiming that Mobile Telecommunication Technology is safe enough and does not add to public health risk both directly and indirectly.
New standards must be developed in a way to protect the public health from the possible  exposure to microwave radiation.
The SAR is a value that corresponds to the relative amount of RF energy absorbed in the head of a user of a wireless handset. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
