“Science has shown increased risk of brain tumors from use of cellphones, as well as increased risk of eye cancer, salivary gland tumors, testicular cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and leukemia, The public must be informed.” – August ’09 report on cell phone hazards
There are several things a person needs to know about cell phone use and related health and life hazards. As of June 2009, there were an estimated 4.3 billion cell phone (mobile phones) users worldwide. In the United States, it is estimated that more than fifty percent of children own their own personal cell phones. A growing body of scientific evidence shows that there are significant health hazards to their use, including brain tumors; damage to DNA, an undisputed cause of cancer; blood-brain barriers (BBB) leakage (BBB protects the brain from many molecules that are toxic to the brain; and male fertility damage by cell phone use because men, especially teenagers, put their cell phones in their pockets when not in use, causing a deleterious effect on sperm count and sperm motility.
