Mobile telephone. Risks. Hazards. Advice

Definition of mobile telephony
The mobile phone is a wireless radio system, mobile phone being a small transmitter-receiver (no protection) and omnidirectional, which emits high-frequency in the microwave band of between 900-1800 MHz, with 2 W of maximum power limit for power law do not overheat the brain tissues.

The most dangerous radiation coming from the mobile antenna, located very near the head and fades when the hearing aid away. The emission power increases automatically as physical barriers (walls, vehicles, etc..) Found between the mobile and the receiving antenna.

The radiation from a mobile phone more than 3 million times the natural radiation (Natural Sun), and during use the transmitter-receiver antenna is literally stuck to the brain. The microwave emission, very close to our skulls, accelerates our brainwaves to limit stress, and may have many other biological effects.

Hazards and risks of mobile phones continued exposure
Many scientific reports warn of the risk of electromagnetic pollution and especially microwaves, used in television broadcasts, and mobile radars, but also in information technology (chips) and in many electronic devices (wireless).

On continued exposure, long term, mobile phone use or exposure to the transmission towers, many scientists find the following risks:
- Damage to the cell membrane (ion flux Ca, K, Na).

- Effects on the immune system defenses at a loss.

- Even DNA damage, with destruction of chromosomes, and rupture of single and double bonds.

- The growth of tumors found in guinea pigs.

- Has been associated with the use of mobile skin cancer

- Can be cause of brain tumors (brain permeability).

- Has also been linked with Parkinson's disease and the risk of enhancing or accelerating the onset of Alzheimer's dementia.

The time-dependent biological effects of exposure to microwaves. Increase linearly with the power of the emission source (cell or antenna), and decrease exponecialmente (d2) with increasing distance between mobile relay antenna and the exposed person.

With very low radiation dose, from 0.1 u W/cm2 power of radiation, these effects can occur. Biophysical studies of Neil Sherry (New Zeeland), are biological effects, with an abnormal electroencephalogram from just 0.01 uW/cm2. Data confirmed by the research of Dr. V. Klitzing (Lübeck, Germany) that as a specialist in Medical Physics thresholds prevention lies between 1 and 10 nanoWatios/cm2 (0.001-0.01 uW/cm2).

Neurophysiological dangers or risks of mobile telephony
For its part, the short-term neurophysiological effects show a clear correlation with the increased use of mobile or greater proximity to the antennas.

Some of these effects are:
- Increased stress.

- Alteration of brain waves and other biorhythms.

- Loss of memory, mind blank.

- Persistent headache.

- Insomnia and sleep disorders.

- Noise and ringing in the ears

- Dizziness and vertigo.

- Palpitations and abnormal heart rhythms.

- Rise in blood pressure.

- Heating of tissues near the ear and the eye's cornea with increased risk of cataracts.

- Erythema in areas of skin exposed directly to radiation.

- And other ailments difficult to define qualified in medicine as neurovegetative dystonia.

Although everyone is susceptible to microwaves, the potential threat against electromagnetic fields is higher for "high-risk population, as pregnant women, infants and children who have a much higher statistical risk (up to hundreds of times).

The risk also increases in sick, elderly and even more in people ultrasensitive, the group of "allergic to electricity" biological responses that can occur with radiation doses up to a thousand times smaller.

Tips to reduce the risk of mobile phones
Faced with so many controversial studies on the issue of whether the mobile phone is dangerous to health or not, we conclude from British independent experts when first unveiled their report for the Ministry of Health of United Kingdom in 2000: "we recommend that apply the precautionary principle in the use of mobile phone technologies until there is more and more substantiated scientific information on their health effects.

Given the obvious risk, the advice would be:
- Use your mobile phone as little as possible.

- Limit the number of calls and their duration.

- The analog are more desirable than digital (GSM).

- Choose a low-radiation model.

- Zoom everything from head to talk (handsfree accessory).

- When not in use (stand by), keep the phone away from the body.

- Avoid carrying permanently near the genitals, kidneys, heart, eyes or brain.

- Do not use within buildings, increasing the radiation power by having to pass through dense structures.

- Avoid use in public places to prevent inadvertent irradiation passive user.

- Prevent the sale and promotion of young mobile phone, preventing their use to children because of their sensitivity.
