Mobile Phone Harmfull Effects

Mobile phones have become such an integral part of our lives that most of cant remember what it was like before we had them or even how we used to get hold of one-another.

But, if Mobiles are in-fact harmfull, would the big multi-billion dollar mobile phone companies tell us?? - Hell no!!

This would be one of the biggest cover ups of our time because we all use them & would find it quite hard to work around not using one. Im sure lots of people will say how they dont trust or us mobiles but they are a small percentage of the pop.

It is still a relatively new technology and there are lots of tests still underway but the scientists researching harmfull effects of phones have themselves stopped or modified there cellphone use (Which kind of tells you something in itself) - Its like doctors who dont smoke.
"Leading scientists have have cut down or modified their personal use of mobile phones as fears mount that they can damage health.
New research to be published next month links mobile phone use to memory loss.

The use of mobile phones has already been linked to headaches, fatigue, damage to the immune system and cancer.

However, there is no firm evidence yet that mobile phones cause any harm."

But not just phones themselves but people who live near repeater towers complain of all sorts of ailments including a constant buzzing noise in the head.

Plants actually arch and grow away from towers and eventually wither & die.
"The study by scientists at the University of Lund, near Malmo, exposed rats to microwave pulses similar to the emissions from a mobile phone to calculate the effect on the body's blood-brain barrier, the Daily Mail reports."

Within two minutes of exposure, the rats' brain tissue was found to be opened up to proteins and toxins contained in the blood after the defence mechanism was disabled.

Professor Leif Salford, the neurologist who carried out the study, told the paper: "We saw the opening of the blood-brain barrier even after a short exposure to radiation at the same level as mobile phones."

This is quite scary & my point is, if the population is at risk from using phones we wouldnt be told. Only in 20 years time we would find out the true after effects by which time the damage would be done and the Cellphone companies would have made their trillions already.

If you were told with definate proof that they are in-fact bad for you, would you still carry on using them?

i have more theories on mobile phones and what uses they could be used for by our leaders.

i think it is interesting now mobile phones are smashing your brains, they want the population to stop smoking. now they say smoking kills, but have replaced it with a far more damaging system.

i wonder what effects on a whole will mobile phones have on the human race.

Whats mad is even after reading all this stuff about it & informing myself to the dangers, I still cant really see myself "giving up" using my phone.

I stopped smoking a couple years ago, it was much easier than I thought it was going to be but I did so because I made up my my mind & decided to. Not because someone else wanted me to.

The show was on TV about a month ago and it had footage of trees near repeater stations & its actually quite scary that it kills plantlife and makes it grow away from the towers.

There is a clear risk but people blissfully ignore it & the mobile phone companies know there is too but they will never turn around & say "Ok folks, we recommend you dont use our products because they could be harmfull to your health"

They cant & wont.

Plus, the people wouldnt listen to them anyway

yep i never like putting mobiles near my head, and no one should ever put those phones near there heads.

with smoking i was just showing you that in europe now they want people to stop smoking, funny that now they have something worse for our brains and bodies, the general public are told to give up on smoking.

i just wonder what effects mobiles are going to have as a whole on the human population, but they play the same trick on the public again, as saying we all have to have a mobile or we are not in with the crowd etc... exactly like what they did with smoking all those years ago.

i think there are things to do with mobiles that i have never seen people touch on yet, but they probably have other uses for the government as well. but the general public would not even want to believe those reasons so i will not go there.

but the bad thing is, even if you do not use a mobile, you must be near those towers, so it will eventually have effects on you to.

Those poor Rats. They didn't have much of a chance! There is not a scrap of evidence that mobile phones damage humans. Those poor rats were exposed to radiation that they couldn't take. The only way to find out if mobiles are frying brains is to test it on a human. Professor Leif Salford would be perfect.

i am sure they already know about the effects of mobiles. they have been messing around with directed energy weapons for a long time now, and know what sort of effects different energies have on our bodies and brains.

Thats my point. I'm sure they know too but they're turning a blind eye because of the money it rakes in.

Everyone I know has mobiles (Except for one friend who accidentally dropped his phone in the toilet:lol

Everything now is phone orientated. Enter competitions with phones, listen to music, watch tv. In japan they can buy things from vending machines...the list goes on.

Its embedded now in our society and will be for a long time and no-one will stop it.

The human race will suffer for the sake of usual

Russian Journalists cook an Egg using Mobile Phone Radiation.

People who use their Mobile for more than an hour a day probably shouldn't.

One thing I've noticed is that my thigh gets sore if I have my phone in my pocket for long.

I always keep my wallet, keys, phone in certain pockets and when I get to friends houses or whatever I take it out my pocket.

I put it in the other pocket to test and my other thigh got sore too. I've got a new phone now so I dont really notice it anymore but I do still take it out when I don need it on me. (I also dont like it so close to my beanbag, I wanna have kids one day)

Yikes! Do you think it will help if you use a Bluetooth device so the phone itself does not come close to your head, or will the Bluetooth device give off radiation as well.

Argh. To think about all the long conversations I´ve had using mobile phones during my support years. Ugh.

Now what was my point again...? I forgot.

I think i must have been carrying my phone in my right trouser pocket for the last 3 years, with no side effects. Or not effects that I have noticed. On a totally non medical point of view what about the idea that we can always be traced to our location through our phones. "insert some sort of population monitoring conspiracy here".

Informative post, Thanks.

old thread, just fyi

cell phone towers are especially problematic, because of continued uncontrollable exposure.

This story made sensational headlines and then promptly disappeared.

A SPATE of brain tumours among staff has forced RMIT University to close part of its business school and test for radiation emissions from rooftop phone towers.

As staff reacted with shock, the university yesterday shut the top two floors of the Bourke Street building and ordered more than 100 employees to work from home for the next fortnight.

The closure follows the discovery of five brain tumours in the past month and two others in 1999 and 2001. Two were malignant and five were benign.

[. . .]

The academics' union last night expressed concern that the tumours were caused by the communications towers on the roof of the former Tivoli Theatre site. cancer-fears/

I found this statement on microwavenews interesting.

All the measured levels are compared to current Australian exposure limits, which like most other national standards, are not designed to protect against cancer risks, but rather shocks and burns. The measured levels are a tiny fraction of those that would present acute health risks, but such comparisons tell us nothing about the likelihood of possible chronic (e.g. cancer) hazards.

What a silly test. What, do they use an old piece of meat for the test rig? If it ain't burnt it must be good.
I think they're wagging the dog on this one. They're enabling reporting of a nature that shuts down questions by finding their tests "within acceptable limits", except those limits just mean you won't get a suntan from a half hours exposure or little lightning bolts zapping your eyeballs. It doesn't say anything about the effect of being near a tower in a crowded city with calls pinging on and off the thing 24/7.
