Are Mobile Phones A Health Hazard?
Devra Davis, an academic and toxicologist, part of the group that won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, says mobile phones can give us brain cancer.
An eminent American scientist, Davis is also one of the country’s leading epidemiologists, believes for years the mobile phone industry been trying to bury scientific evidence that mobile phones cause cancer, in an attempt to protect its $3 trillion, 4.6 billion business, worldwide.
The use of mobile phones is soaring, especially among the young, and Davis believes in as little as three years it will turn into a ‘global public health catastrophe’, if ignored.
She says, of greater concern is research that suggests the threat they pose to male fertility. Research in seven countries, including the US, China and Australia indicates keeping a mobile phone switched on in a trouser pocket drastically reduces the sperm count, including sperm exposed to mobile phone radiation in the lab found to be sicker, thinner and less capable of swimming.
Low powered radio frequency transmitters, mobile phones produce microwave radiation, and the threat from such radiation has been underplayed for too long.
Davis’ work includes research from studies in the US, Sweden, Greece, France and Russia that support her beliefs.
For example, researchers from the University Of Washington found just two hours of mobile phone level radiation splintering the DNA of brain cells in rats, made them similar to cells found in malignant tumours.
The thin, pliant skulls of children make them more vulnerable to such radiation.
