Whitepaper: Mobile Phone Users: Another High Health Risk Group

by Kamla-Raj EnterprisesJan 01, 2008

A mobile (cell) phone is a low power, single channel two-way-radio and emits signals via radio waves, which comprise radio frequency (RF) energy, a form of electromagnetic radiation. Some reported biological effects associated with these radiations include radiofrequency sickness, electroencephalographic and blood pressure changes, cancer risks and genotoxicity. Since exposure to radiofrequency radiations has been reported to affect physiological, neurological, cognitive and behavioral changes and to induce, initiate and promote carcinogenesis, such an underlying threat to human health also exists for mobile phone users. This white paper explains the ill-effects of mobile phone on users.
