cellular telephone dangers
cellular telephone dangersThese include inattention to driving with the risk of traffic accidents, a significant risk of interference with cardiac pacemakers, and a postulated risk to the brain from high-frequency (microwave) electromagnetic radiation. Research suggests that the risk of pacemaker upset is significant only if the telephone is held over the pacemaker site. Scientists agree that the brain heating effect of radiation from phones is negligible. Several major studies of the possible dangers of brain cancer and other diseases have produced no statistically significant findings. Research continues.
