Cell Phone Dangers

Cell phones, like microwaves, haven't been around long enough to know beyond the shadow of a doubt that they are safe.  The following studies have linked cell phone usage to degraded health:


The Institute for Environmental Medicine in Stokholm has proposed a 300% increased chance for the development of acoustic neuromas amongst decade-long cell phone users.

Brain damage

The Collaborative on Health and the Environment cites serious neuronal damage to rats when exposed to levels of cell phone radiation on a scale analogous to what humans routinely experience.


The American Society for Reproductive Medicine recently revealed that cell phone use has a direct, sliding scale correlation with sperm count.  Men who use cell phones for more than four hours per day have up to a 25% decrease in sperm count.

Birth defects

The Biological Effects Laboratory in New Mexico cites various consequences of exposure to cell phone radiation that culminate in birth defects in pregnant females.  The exposure standard for their researchers is 100 times more stringent than the FCC's standard for civilian exposure.

Immune system changes

The Wiley Interscience Journal cites a study that determines elevation of PFC (antibody producing cells) count in response to exposure to low levels of cell phone radiation. 

Genetic damage

The Indian Journal of Human Genetics found “DNA migration” in 40% of the cell phone users they studied.

Sleep loss

MIT's Progress in Electromagnetic Research Symposium reported that cell phone radiation causes sleep deprivation by retarding the rate at which users move through the various stages of sleep.

Hopefully that's enough to make you think twice before strapping on a holster for your mobile phone.  Turn it off and stick it in a lead-encased desk drawer.
