We love our phones and so no one wants to see the link between breast cancer and cell phones. Kind of like smoking in the 50′s. People knew smoking wasn’t healthy, but they didn’t want to admit it to themselves. How could something so common, and widespread be unhealthy?
There are many studies of the effect of cell phones on the brain.
I have not found any studies on the effect of cellphones on the breasts…but Doctor John G. West in Orange County has seen a link. Two women who carried their phones close to their breast, found lumps close to where they kept their phones. A similar coincidence happened to me. I believe that the link between cell phone radiation and breast cancer deserves a study. In the meantime…
how do you protect yourself?:
Be extra careful in rural areas because you get more radiation from your phone as your phone works harder to get the satellite signal.
Use the speaker phone on your phone, if you have one, when you can.
Keep your phone away from your body, even when not in use. Don’t keep it near your bed at night.
Cordless home phones may also be dangerous, so keep these away from your body too.
Find the SAR rating (specific absorption rate) of your cell phone.
Good luck trying to tell your teenager to keep her phone away from her ovaries, breasts and brain!
