Cells phones everywhere
Today, more than 3/4 of the world population owns a cell phone (5.1 bllion out of 7 billion). Eventually, the total number of cell phones will probably exceed the total world populaton since more and more people own two or more phones rather than just one. In the US alone, there are now 300 million subscribers, i.e. almost every American owns and uses a cell phone.
For all of us, our cell phone is part and parcel of their every day life. In particular, four out of five teenagers use their cell phones on a constant basis, and no one knows what the long-term effect of such intense use will be on their health later in life.
There is however one aspect of cell phone use that remains stubbornly unresolved so far, i.e. the impact it might very well have on users' health. Since it became a mass market item less than 20 years ago, the controversy has not abated. Studies after studies have reached opposite conclusions, leaving the average user not knowing who to believe, let alone trust.
Is there a danger? No one has found a smoking gun yet, but there are enough signs pointing towards possible long-term harm to urge caution. Even the World Health Organization warned in 2011 that "radiation from cell phones can possibly cause cancer". The agency now puts cell phone use in the same "carcinogenic hazard" category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.
Today, the public is divided between those who believe that using their cell phone does not carry any risk, and many others who are either more cautious or more worried, remembering that history is filled with inventions initially considered as harmless but which proved later to be dangerous, if not lethal.
Increasing numbers of cell phone users are positive that they have become electro-sensitive, i.e. they can feel, without the help of any mechanical device (and whether they like it or not) the radiation waves pulsed from their cell phones (and many other sources as well), to the point of being seriously affected and in some cases even getting sick.
The existence of such a group (whose numbers are growing constantly) indicates that something serious is going on, and that it would be a good idea to pay attention to what they are saying is happening to them.
To top it all, some of the largest re-insurance companies (followed as a result by many insurance companies) have decided without any qualms that they would not insure any more mobile telephone companies for civil damages resulting from exposure to electromagnetic fields.
This should give everyone pause: if insurance companies pull out of a very lucrative field, it must be for a good reason. The only problem is that they have not provided any explanation for their decision, leaving the public free to draw their own conclusions.
There are a number of indirect precautions that one can take to limit their exposure to radiation emitted by their cell phone. But for those for whom letting go of their favorite toy is not an option and who want a more direct solution, a simple and effective product that eliminates the harmful radiation coming off of it is available: the EMF-Bioshield®/Tel system.
