CELL PHONES & CANCER
A new study linking cell phone radiation to cancers in rats has a lot of people wondering, ‘‘Do I need to start protecting myself from my own phone?’’.
While the study has some of the most comprehensive evidence about the impact of this radiation to date, it wasn’t completely groundbreaking. The World Health Organisation said cell phones might cause cancer back in 2011.

For those who have concerns for themselves, and for children who are likely to be much more susceptible to the electromagnetic fields (EMF) emulating from cell phones, tablets, portable phones, cell phone towers, smart meters, WiFi areas and high voltage power grids, makes this a fortuitous warning. EMF fields generated from the above interfere with our own natural body electricity).
Some people are sensitive to external EMF and have physical symptoms when they come in contact with radiation from sources such as cell phones and smart meters. Others like myself appear not to be affected, but longer term exposure as shown in this study, may also cause us harm.
