Information to the Public
Report: Cut down Mobile use:Cell phone may cause cancer, the World Health Organization announced Tuesday.There is not enough long-term data to link cancer and cell phone use directly, reported a group of 31 scientists from 14 countries. But there is enough information to issue an alert.
WHO now groups cell phones in the same hazard category as chloroform, lead, and engine smoke.
Children use cell phones only in emergencies because their brains are still developing, and that adults should keep cell phones away from their head, using the speakerphone or a wireless headset. Excessive use of mobiles could lead to health hazards in general and cancer in particular. It is not just cancer, mobiles can affect peoples’ hormonal levels, lead to nerve tumor in the ears, and even anxiety about the ring tones. Radiation from the mobile phones and mobile towers, poses serious health risks, including loss of memory ,lack of concentration, disturbance in the digestive system and sleep disturbances.
