All over the world people spend a large portion of their day glued to their phones, not knowing that they are taking in electromagnetic radiation which is not just cell phones, but by any electrical appliance. From the microwave oven in the kitchen to the TV screen in your living room, radiation comes from all of these appliances.

Studies have been proven that cell phone radiation have been proven to cause brain damage, and other types of genetic damage.

The signals that are sent through waves in a cell phone are given out and generate a type of radiation fields, which generate is given off your phone into your body.

The total amount of adults that own a cell phone in the United States have reached 91 percent.

Since the government has put together high profiting cell phone industry’s they don’t want to warn the consumers about the dangers of cell phone usage.

It all started in the early 1980’s when the phone industry first started they started to receive a high demand they pressured the drug administration to start selling cell phones without any testing for any possible harm.

With over two billion cell phone uses being exposed to the cell phone radiation daily, many do not know that they are exposed almost immediately, but still no word has come out from the government about these issues.

Some of these major issues are “Cellular energy is now used for protection rather than metabolism. Cell membranes harden, keeping nutrients out and waste products in,” says Sue Kovach from life extension magazine

Kovach also mentions “Epidemic curve projections, however, indicate that in 2006, we can expect to see 40,000 to 50,000 cases of brain and eye cancer. This is based on published peer-reviewed studies that allow calculation of risk and construction of epidemic curves. She expect that number to be between 400,000 and 500,000 new cases worldwide.”

We can only expect high cancer rates for our younger generation with the amount of radiation that is being taken in.
