The Growing Concern about Cell Phone Radiation – Part 1

iphoneFor the past several years there has been growing concern about the potential danger of cell phones and the radiation that they emit. The telecommunications industry has clashed with independent researchers and scientists on the true safety of cells phones, but what they have agreed upon so far is that there needs to be more research conducted.

On May 31, 2011 the World Health Organization, together with the International Agency for Research on Cancer (WHO/IARC) “classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B) based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use.”

Additionally, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has listed cell phones on their list of possible cancer-causing substances due to the fact that cell phones give off radio-frequency (RF) waves and may increase the risk of brain tumors or other tumors in the head and neck area.

Cell phone usage in today’s culture is simply astronomical, and continues to grow, with an estimated five billion cell phone subscriptions worldwide. Telecommunication companies have assured the general public that cell phones are safe to use and meet all required safety standards, but independent researchers disagree, citing a mounting body of evidence about the dangers of cell phone use and its potentially damaging effects.

According to IARC Director Christopher Wild, “Given the potential consequences for public health of this classification and findings, it is important that additional research be conducted into the long-term, heavy use of mobile phones.”

LifeWave has taken a proactive approach to this growing concern, developing a product that is effective at dramatically reducing the amount of electromagnetic radiation caused by cell phones. This product named Matrix: Cell Shield, will be released in April to the general public in order to provide a product that provides a real reduction in radiation from cell phones

Stay tuned for Part 2 of the Project: Cell Shield Series titled What Do We Really Know About Cell Phone Radiation?
